(NEW YORK) A poetic mood in shades of white and grey emerged from the BCBG Max Azria spring collection that seemed far too romantic for an urban dweller. The silhouette was repetitive and consisted mainly of knee-length belted dresses with a few shorter exceptions. Yet details like delicate, layered fabrics, bustiers, and ruffles, distinguished each piece. Sometimes the layering looked natural, like on a bright green dress with a petrol green outer-layer that flows from the waist down. With other dresses, the layers became individual garments whose contrast gives these pieces a modern, slightly offbeat look. A black, see-through skirt wraps around a pink, sleeveless dress, while a satin bustier is matched with a ruffled skirt in shades of pink and grey. Other details were more flattering in the form of bows or strapless dresses worn over short-sleeved shirts. BCBG Max Azria is also known for its accessories, and this collection did not disappoint. The platform pumps were an instant hit with editors.
