For the BCBG Max Azria Spring 2009 collection we had a lot of super sexy yet wearable draped dresses oozing modern elegance. Azria’s favorite fabrics – silk and jersey – were heavily used on the minimalistic dresses as well as on the occasional jumpsuit or romper. Plunging necklines, feminine waists, high slits left the folks in the front row astounded. There were a few splashes of bright color like royal blue, raspberry, tangerine and petrol, but the collection’s main color theme was rather dark and muted.
A big plus goes out to Azria for creating a very wearable collection, but I had very mixed feeling about a lot of the outfits, so 3 1/2 stars from me.
My absolute favorite items are the grey draped dress below in the middle and the floaty rasbperry one-shouldered dress down the page which has this odd Versace feel to it.
