BCBG Max Azria Fall 2012 Collection
There’s a lot to love about this collection, starting with the colors. Gorgeous, saturated yellows, oranges and greens paired with the beiges and camels that prevent them from being too much. Everything is bold, graphic, and luxe. There was a lot of play with pleating, which we really liked, but we weren’t as keen on some of the looser silhouettes, which didn’t tend to serve the color-blocking as well. Some gorgeous bags and coats, with a bit too much fur. If you’re going to use fur, it should be on a backdrop that showcases it. Too many times it felt like an unneeded afterthought here. Still, the looks are striking and so cohesive you’ll have no problem identifying any of them as from this designer, from this season. Statement clothes from tip to toe.
