BCBGMAXAZRIA Spring 2014 – NYFW, 5 September 2013

This season, BCBGMAXAZRIA set out to redefine the traditional silhouette and tailoring techniques for their Spring 2014 collection.  Textile was important in keeping a classic look utilizing practical fabric, while still keeping an essence of chicness and sophistication.

Embroidery, watercolor prints with color set against masculine and feminine structures created a new way of defining “tailored chic”.  The chambray shirt trend has been re-done and looks more like a dress instead of a long men’s shirt.  Fabrics draped gently over the figures so as not to be too form-fitting, and embellishment accented some sheer tops so nicely, you could still show off a bit of skin without being vulgar.

I love this V-neck shirt dress, especially because it reminds me of gowns from the Edwardian era with it’s low waistline:


Color blocking was re-defined into print-blocking and may become more prevalent for the season as pattern mixing seems very popular nowadays.  This dress is absolutely gorgeous:


And I really love this black silk tulle top with beading and embroidery detail:


This collection was colorful, experimental in shape and patterns, and feminine and strong.
