Go rural in urban for Fall 2013 was the message from BCBG Max Azria as the models took to the catwalk for the real big show of this season’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. Fall 2013 was inspired by “the beautiful history inlaid within the architecture of Istanbul and the electric style of the gypsies of Southern Europe; contrasted by the artwork of contemporary artist Phil Frost,” which Max and Lubov Azria translated into loose silhouettes, high-impact prints, patterned fur, and intricate leather work.
Everybody loves some figure obstruction during the winter months and the gypsy-style dress, boyfriend jacket, and a new twist on the shoe boot (thigh-high leather boots and ankle cuff stilettos) contributed towards a sporty luxe but bohemian vibe. The color palette stayed faithful to a traditional black and white but the mood was softened by touches of blue, burgundy and green. Makeup was nude with smokey eyes and hair was straight. Fear no bad hair day next fall as each model wore a beanie which had everyone in the audience excited about the new trend. By far, BCBG Max Azria set off NYFW with a bang and showcased a collection desired by many women for a high fashion but everyday fall wardrobe.
