The BCBG Max Azria
Resort collection has plenty to offer the shopper who wants to experiment with the still-going-strong tribal trend without abandoning her urban uniform. A series of silk dresses—some in neutral shades, the prettiest in colorful shibori—were elaborately draped and pintucked, then layered over the brand's best-selling long-sleeve knit shirts, shown this season in bold, graphic prints. Shorter, more structured dresses, meanwhile, featured intricate embroideries covered in sheer chiffon cut at irregular angles. All in all, this felt like a follow-up to ideas that Max and Lubov Azria first proposed for Fall, but that's not a bad thing. It's these twists on familiar designs that will keep fans, city slickers and otherwise, coming back for more.
