BCBG Maxazria S/S 2013 show report


As the models walked down the BCBG Maxazria catwalk, we saw leather harnesses on light, flowy fabrics. This contrast works really well especially for a S/S collection as light leather seems to be a huge hit. For instance, here we see a light, leather cape jacket paired with sheer lace, another trend that's bound to big next year.



Blacks, nudes and whites were the main colours of the show and although these shades don't exactly pop, they fit BCBG really well and I would say the collection was pretty elegant. 



Structured and refined are words I would use to describe this collection as we see every look polished off with bold shapes and cut-outs. 

I'm not too sure about the weird ankle pieces though...


Large, statement envelope clutches were seen on the runway which I LOVE and I'm so relieved that they will still be staple fashion items.


Lastly, as we look at the necklines of the dresses, I notice that there are plunging looks with a covered-up twist, which I admire. The look above has a lace insert which is sexy but still classy. "I don't think you need to show a lot of skin to be sexy", says the designer herself and I couldn't agree more with this collection as S/S is the time you would expect to see the most flesh but this could change it all.
