BCBGMAXAZRIA - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) “I kept clapping in front row. I loved and wanted just about everything,” raved country singer Kellie Pickler. Which is good sign for Max Azria, considering the Fall BCBGMAXAZRIA collection was atypical. Functional and artistic sensibilities of Constructivism were the main focus of a show that seemed targeted for a slightly older consumer than in previous seasons. There were standout party dresses unconventionally paired with gold tights, successful micro jersey pieces, and confusing velvet numbers. Strong separates, pretty clutches and platforms were almost lost in the overstyled show, but some looks will find their place onto store shelves.
