From the Runway: BCBG Max Azria Fall 2012
by AMANDA WEINER TWITTER.COM/AMANDAWEINER
The Look: This season, “B” is for Bauhaus at BCBG Max Azria, where Lubov and Max Azria further explored the geometric motif we've seen in their other recent collections. Color-blocked chiffon dresses and jumpsuits were layered with statement outerwear, such as vented trenches with leather patchwork and pieced fur sleeved coats. The lady was certainly a modernist, one who revels in the louche silhouettes of the’70s yet adores the Bauhaus designs of the ’30s.
Beauty: Low ponytails with droopy side-parts, strong brows, muted lips, and top lid-lined eyes.
Front Row: Jessica White, Erin Wasson, Angela Simmons, Fern Mallis, and Giada di Laurentiis.
Trimmings: Pieced fur clutches, dark metal-framed clutches, top handle bags, and gold metal heels.
Where to Wear: The New Museum. Looks are youthful enough to wear below Houston, but sophisticated enough for the art scene.
