SPRING 2009: BCBG MAX AZRIA

Dominican Beauty Arlenis Sosa Peña

Fashion Week 2008 opened with a stunner with BCBG Max Azria--who showed pieces that are in sharp contrast to this fall's fitted, structured and highly stylized fashions. The Spring 2009 line is soft, sexy, flowy and rock and roll. The collection reminded me the outfits made popular by it girls in the Studio 54 era. I can so see Bianca Jagger in the flowy-yet-clingy pants.


Not for the wall flower, I would expect that only the most confident of fashionistas would wear something from this collection. Not-so-subtle draping lent a Grecian air, the long maxi dresses evoked the 70's and sharp black added some edge. Overall, the collection looked very resort with bursts of color--in intense shades of orange and fuschia and blue--interrupting what would otherwise be a monochromatic palette.

Love the grey dress you featured. I can't wait to see it in the stores. I love BCBG because its items I can actually purchase as opposed to just admire :)

The BCBG Max Azria collection is gorgous. I just saw that hautelook.com is having a sample sale on this line tomorrow. They have sales up to 75% off! Plus, you don't need an invite to join, anyone can just sign up on the site. I'm so addicted. I go every morning and check out the webzine and the sales.
