Stacey Bendet took motivation from the fresh art installations often presented at Versailles. The designer displayed a sweater embroidered with little crowns and other memories of Marie Antoinette's court.

Inspired by a trip she took to the Palace of Versailles with her mother and daughter, Stacey Bendet’s spring collection was fit for “a modern-day court,” as she put it. Bendet did what she does best -party dresses and flirty, feminine separates- and this season, the looks were heavy on sparkle and beading with some Seventies influence, like handkerchief hems, halter necklines and bell-bottoms.

Bendet also asked her friend, the artist Lola Schnabel, to create a colorful painting that she printed onto a folded silk blouse and skirt.

The presentation was set up in a series of Versailles-style vignettes -the garden, the court and even a tea party, with one model dressed in a Marie Antoinette ballgown and exaggerated 18th-century hairdo.
It was a lot of ideas at once, but taken apart, the pieces were highly wearable for Bendet’s unabashedly girly customer
