According to designer Max Azria, Wim Wenders' 1987 film Wings of Desire was the inspiration for BCBG this season. Literal interpretations included wing motifs on the backs of heather-gray wool jackets and black T-shirts. There were also more subtle references like embroidered chiffon tops with ties that fell to the floor, mud-fur jackets, and a color palette that revolved around pewter, porcelain and sable. Colorful pieces included shiny croclike coats, glitter suede jackets, and easy plaid coats and pants. Accessories were fun and playful: faux-mink wraps, fake-fur and feather-covered bags and tall boots in distressed metallic leather.
