Fashion Week Recap-BCBG Max Azria

Break out the turtlenecks!! And who knew they could be sexy??? Max Azria, along with his muse, wife Lubov (who is also the company’s creative director) shows the turtleneck not only a staple, but the anchor of his Fall 2011 collection. The thirty-four line collection showed long, sleek, minimalistic lines that had a slight ‘70’s retro feel, but brought up to date in the details.

Long, delicate silk crepe maxi dresses, tunics, coats, hooded jackets and accessories were belted and layered over white turtleneck body suits creating a long, elegant and sensual look. When the dresses were of neutrals, the mochas and beiges, they elongated and enhanced the color pattern. When the dresses were colorful, in the reds and blues, they created a modern and elegant color block effect.  Overall, the collection was clean, simple, minimalistic, but the flashes of bright colors and varying neck lines created a “fresh sensibility and innate seduction”.

On the runway, models with sleek ponytails and little make-up complete minimalistic look. Look for accessories such as envelope clutches and knee high boots to stay in style as they enhance this style.
