Nothing sparks the fire of New York Fashion Week like a major show to kick things off. A brand that is synonymous with major, BCBG Max Azria, brought the jolt you usually rely on from your extra shot of espresso first thing in the morning. Building on a subdued palette of neutral shades including nudes, clay, black, white and “color” coming from tones of coral, the vitality came from the mix of fabrics and touches of leather. Crepe, chiffon and lace graced many of the looks giving them a classic BCBG feel. However, it was the slightly aggressive pieces of textured fabrics that were formed in bondage-esq creations on top of many of the garments that gave an exciting and exotic feeling of newness. The danger in the edgy harnesses countered the romance of the flowing hemlines and soft fabric choices. The collection is a balance of ornate trends and glamorously wearable pieces, which is what we have come to love from BCBG.
