It's not hard to understand why BCBG has a substantial following all over the world—designer Max Azria has an uncanny ability to appropriate major currents in fashion and make them accessible to a general market.

Accompanied by an earsplitting soundtrack of mid-'90s Prodigy techno, Azria sent out everything from moleskin trenches and trousers to leather strip jackets, scalloped minidresses and pleated bustiers that brought to mind Helmut Lang's Spring dominatrix-inspired collection. As if to make sure not to miss a single trend, Azria also included corduroy suits, flouncy chiffon dresses, glimmering Lurex tops and plenty of waist-sculpting leather cage belts in the spirit of Tom Ford's recent corseted Gucci collection.

Accessories ran the gamut from simple black leather pumps and slides to punky ankle booties and frankly intriguing bags with thick chain handles and dangling adornments.
