BCBG Spring 2013 Runway Review

Only a few months ago, Max Azria showed an affinity for harnesses with his Fall 2012 collection for Herve Leger; now the designer and his wife Lubov Azria have brought the harness back for their Spring 2013 BCBG line-up. Nearly every look came complete with leather, lace, and/or a harness, but despite what those details may conjure up, the collection veered to the soft and feminine rather than the austere and S&M side.

Silhouettes were relaxed and elongated with lots of mix and match textures, contrast paneling, and cutouts. The palette stayed focused on wearable neutrals and prints which, along with the softly draped fabrics, served to perfectly temper the harder edge of the harnesses, leather, and lingerie lace.

As for celebrities, there are always some at BCBG shows and this season they included Whitney Port, Jessica White, Selita Ebanks, and Daisy Fuentes.
