Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week | NYC – BCBGMAXAZRIA FW 2012

BCBGMAXAZRIA debuted a Fall/Winter 2012 collection that is a puzzle of geometric shapes & bold colors. Paprika, berry blue & turquoise give figure to the geometric architectural elements. Neutral colors to be noted- cream, camel & macchiato, which provide a sense of tranquility. Crepe & silk dominate the collection. The light, flowing dresses vary in length, all below the knee, giving privacy where needed while other transparent elements give hints of discreet playfulness.

Although it’s a collection that accentuates simplicity, the pieces can be versatile- day or night- they’re more conforming & not for the avant-garde. Pleats add extra movement. There are touches of fur, a sense of symmetry. The outwear is simply pretty. Minimal. The sleeves come in various creations. In one piece, large black leather cuffs finish off at the shoulder with fur and in another they’re entirely fur. One trench is dominated by caramel-colored leather & another by black leather. In all, it’s for the gentle femme who wishes to remain feminine & contemporary. | Giuseppe
