BCBG Max Azria
December 08, 2011 New York
In general, this lineup picked up where Spring left off. BCBG's now-signature cutout shoulders, handkerchief hemlines, sporty drawstring details, and pops of neon appeared here again. At times, the combination of these elements erred on the overwhelming side. Only a girl with the sartorial audacity (not to mention killer bod) of Abbey Lee Kershaw, for example, could pull off look 17: a racy halter maxidress with denim-printed silk and peekaboo lace panels running along the bust and up both legs. But more often than not, the Azrias combined the aforementioned motifs in a way that was fresh and wearable.
