Runway Review: BCBG Max Azria Spring 2014

Easy, breezy, beautiful - those three words sum up the first (major) show during New York Fashion Week. BCBG Max Azria has always been a favorite among young female clients and today's show was a home run in sales terms.

I believe that even the biggest fashionistas want to be comfortable during the spring/summer season. That means away from the body tailoring, light colors, unavoidable florals and, obviously, a hint of skin here and there. All of that and more was presented by Max Azria in Lincoln Center.

The coolest parts of the collection were, in my opinion, the asymmetric dresses and skirts. Done in stark white or icy blue, they were truly a refreshment for the eyes. Away from the body tailoring provided a lot of fluidity in many pieces, so it was quite easy to imagine young women rushing to work on a windy spring day in of the shirt dresses.

There were also plenty of choices for the more high end clientele. For example, wonderfully draped skirts paired with light-as-air chiffon tops could be a perfect choice for ladies who lunch.

The printed pieces that came at the end of the show were home runs in my eyes. Max Azria gave us a perfect floral spring/summer dress right on the first day (check out look 21). Kudos! Aside from the mixed florals (a nod to Liberty prints), another print that caught my eye was the Impressionist floral which adorned many pieces - from jackets to evening dresses.

Speaking of eveningwear, it too was very loose fitting and airy. Previously mentioned prints were enhanced with see through panels for quite a sexy bohemian feel. Girls who feel more comfortable in pants on any occassion were also thought of - some of the exits combined structured blazers and wide, light pants, also with panels (all worn with heels, obviously).

If you're already looking forward to a laidback and stylish (yes, you can have both) summer, this just might be the right collection for you...and it's only day one!
