I admire BCBG’s Spring 2012 collection and could not wait to see the Fall 2012 collection in person. From the press release:
“For Fall 2012, an artful proposition: Harmoniously synthesize shape and color in new elongated proportions, fusing form and function to create a geometric abstraction of Bauhaus style. Hue, space and light create a composed palette, manifesting an architectural aesthetic. Lightweight skills, chiffons and crepe de chine are juxtaposed with woolen and luxe outwear. Contrasting hues and rich textures add character and depth to accessories.”
One of my newest favorite trends, color-blocking, is not leaving anytime soon it seems! Making its way in collections from Spring 2012 and now to Fall 2012 is a good sign. This sign keeps reminding me that color is popular, too, along with black & grey. Besides, who does not like a good pop of color?
Key items: Furs, long wool coats, earmuffs, geometric shapes & the ankle heels! I am really feeling the accessories from the Fall 2012 collections. Especially the handbags!
After the show, I headed backstage where I met and interview Max Azria for a quick three seconds. We talked about his inspiration behind this season’s show! He was very kind and grateful for the press for coming to see the show and thanked his longtime supporters/fans for buying his past/current collections. I couldn’t have interviewed a more humble man.
Congrats, Max Azria!
This collection is for the cool gals. Are you on board with the color-blocking trend?
