BCBG FALL/WINTER 2009

There was a very spring-meets-the-future feel to the start of Max Azria’s BCBG collection with an abundance of ivory and beige looks that were surprisingly demure given the brand’s relatively young demographic, paired with gold lame tights.

However the collection quickly branched into darker tones, which ran through the bulk of the collection, all the while sticking with the metallic tights and mostly draped silhouettes.

Most of the looks presented were heavy on the drapery, with the stand-out looks incorporating geometric detailing which gave some of the pieces – especially those done in the lighter color palette – an almost robotic feel.

The pieces that seemed less flattering were those that were spot dyed and printed, wrapped, overly pleated, and covering most of the model’s upper-body with tons of draped fabric – especially, once again, given the brand’s young clientele.

That said, there were a handful of slinky jersey dresses which the design team always does perfectly, and which was perhaps as a nod to Angelina Jolie, who recently wore a cobalt Max Azria dress backwards to the SAG Awards.  Some looks completely covered the model’s front while featuring a plunging back.
