BCBG Max Azria.
Max and Lubov Azria gave us their Typically Offbeat, Artsy, Bohemian Girl of the Canyons vibe for their somewhat Off-Kilter, and as usual for them Tricky Fall 2015 Collection. There wasn't anything particularly Offensive as some of their collections of recent past have been, but it was all over the place and dipping it's Toe in many Pools. Starting at the point of consideration that Max and Lubov are L.A. People... and when coming to New York in the winter they realize just how Jarring the Cold can be... so the BCBG Collection was full of Cozy, Comfy, Nuzzly layers to keep their Flower Power Child from the Frigid Temps of the Big Bad City!
High Boots, Sweater Knits, Ponchos and Heavy Layering got the message across quite demonstratively, but they added the Quirk to these pieces and layers that put the Azria Stamp firmly on their Output. Taking some prints and styling from the Baltic Coast villages they recently visited bought about an Ethnicity that was hard to place but would be irresistible to their core client base. At some points, things erred a little too much on the side of the decorative and the Boldness of mixing and matching caused some Visual Over-Stimulation, However it was wasn't as Decadently Excessive as some times their collections can be.
Simplicity wrought the finest pieces to be found in the show... A Dark Charcoal Cape/Coat with Fur Pockets was instilling Major amounts of Must-Have, While a Strikingly Simple colour-block Poncho with Leather stitching in Ice White, Stone and Cement Grey Quite possibly stole the whole show and was Vying for top piece in the collection with a Black billowing Chiffon Dress with Black laced-up Leather accents that was Bohemian and Fierce all at the same time!
The Azria's Kicked it up Several notches this Go-Round and showed how Addictive their wares can be when they design as good as this. Their BCBG Woman will be Well-Appointed come Fall and Winter and will have a Plethora of Great options to wade through and see just what fits her Personality. Whatever she may choose... she's gonna look Damn Fine in it!
