New York Fashion Week has officially begun, and I’ve already got quite a few shows under my belt. Some collections stand out to me, and we’ll be bringing you news from the tents throughout the week. I always look forward to the BCBGMAXAZRIA show in particular because I’m comfortable and familiar with the brand’s look, but Max and Lubov have a way of staying true to the brand while reinventing themselves every season.
BCBGMAXAZRIA Fall 2013 may be my favorite collection of theirs to date, mostly because I almost feel it was specially made for me. The inspiration came from the architecture of Istanbul paired with the boho style of the Gypsies of southern Europe, along with artwork of contemporary artist Phil Frost. The end result is an eclectic mix of wearable cool-girl clothes with Turkish touches, literally topped off by cashmere beanies on each model. From thigh-high leather boots to oversized jackets to shift dresses, the girl who loves to dress on-trend but stay comfortable was in mind when this collection was designed.
It was hard to narrow down because I want to wear over 90% of the collection, but here are 7 looks from the show I want to wear right now.
