American Glamour: Summer Style With Badgley Mischka

Mark Badgley
and James Mischka, Badgley Mischka's design duo, know a thing or two about the good life. Their creations are red carpet favorites and their jewelry and accessories lines have a cultic following all their own. We recently caught up with the pair at the HSN Fall Preview, where they were on hand to show off their American Glamour collection for the network. Though we were loving their fall staples, we were too distracted by thoughts of the perfect American summer!

What is the most iconic American summer vacation spot?
For us, it's Lake Placid and the Adirondacks. It's very American, very old school, and it's an amazing getaway. We try and go every July 4th!

What do you pack for your trip?
It's very casual! We're on the boat and lake alot so we tend to bring just chinos, some t-shirts, you need one dress, swimsuits…it's great!

What SPF do you use?
Mischka: I use 45!
Badgley: I'm not as good as I should be!

Editor's Note: Our favorite summer must-have from the line is the American Glamour Link Bracelet, which retails for $39 at
