The first day of New York Fashion Week was beautiful also thanks to the BCBG Max Azria spring/summer 2013 collection. Max and Lubov Azria managed to dazzle the audience with the “beast and beauty” combination of leather and delicate lace through a series of perfectly polished, classic and smart clothing pieces that concentrated mainly on the timeless white and black color spectrum. Body-hugging flat pieces were sometimes black and sometimes white, and many times fused the two colors through layering and accessorizing. For the upcoming warm season, the BCBG Max Azria line took the form of unconstructed designs that created a harmonious conversation between lace and easy leather.
The spring/summer 2013 fashion trends take a more timeless turn in the BCBG Max Azria spring/summer 2013 RTW collection. You can be sure to sport those black and white cleanly cut silhouettes for a few successive seasons. Still, there were some soft splashes of color, such as pretty, dusty pink, lavender, ivory or light blue. The attention to details gave lots of personality to the outfits: we can see amazing patchwork of lace, silk and prints on dresses and rompers, as well as corset-like details on the bodice of tops dresses. An array of loose canvas jackets and menswear inspired blazers gave structure and sharpness to the sophisticated scene.
At the end of the show, the catwalk was filled with ethereal, ground-skimming evening dresses that stayed true to the overall theme. The looks were smartly accessorized with neutral clutches and platform heels in white or black color. Then, the designers appeared looking cheerful and happy that the show succeeded!
