Max Azria's BCBG line is one of the first to kick off Mercedes-Benz fashion week at Lincoln Center for me (Nicholas K is the actually start, but my co-host from Ladies Who Lunch thankfully covers that for me). The fall 2013 collection showed lots of layers in save black and cream.
They showed more fur collars like their Fall 2012 collection. They layered leather with eyelet, warm-looking textured fabrics infused with the patterns of mosaic tiles. Colors included navy and deep maroon in addition to the majority of black and cream. Accessories included a few over-sized envelope clutches, which clearly must be a big seller for them, as they have been the key bag on the runway for third season in a row...
BCBG has never been a leading trendsetter label. If the formula isn't broken, why fix it?
