BCBG Max Azria.

BCBG Max Azria.

There was something Ethereally Pretty about the BCBG Max Azria Spring 2015 show. Lubov Azria, head designer of the company, felt a Romantic breeze blowing through her studio and captured it in Diaphanous and Floaty silhouettes. Azria culled inspiration from a Process called "Color Reform" That is used either in Faded colours of rugs or done intentionally to older pieces to re-dye them in new hues but retain the old patterns. It worked beautifully into the more Bohemian aspect of the collection.

Soft, Fluid and Languid were the watchwords of the day and exemplified by Azria in everything from Full-ish Skirts and Full Pants but mainly concentrated on long dresses to give that California Dreaming vibe. The colours were earthy but Gorgeously Pastel, and the muted Floral prints were things of Absolute Beauty. An Ocean Blue drop waist dress with tiers and long sleeves was the embodiment of this idea, while the best piece in the collection was an unadorned white Shirt Dress with a Sash waist at Exit No. 23, that was Walking Perfection!

This was the the best showing from the house of Azria in quite a long while. Hopefully this has put Max and Lubov back on the path. One can only hope!

That's All.
