BCBG Max Azria

BCBG Max Azria kicked off New York Fashion Week with a Bauhaus-inspired collection that gave off a strong ‘70s vibe. The lightweight silk and chiffon color-block dresses, pants, and blouses came in rich autumn hues juxtaposed with statement coats made of wool, leather, and fur. “They’re beautiful colors,” designer  Max Azria told us backstage of his palette. “I like to add boldness in color. Color brings some sunshine and life, which is what we need.” Agreed! See our favorite looks from the BCBG Max Azria show in the gallery.
