Orange you happy it’s fashion week? Ha, I am! And yes, orange was a big hit at BCBG Max Azria, although I’m not sure how I feel about all of the looks being worn over white turtlenecks. Turtlenecks? Are we French? The look is conservative and adds this aspect of total understatement. The layering look wasn’t exclusive to BCBG, as it popped up in other shows, and certainly added a certain something to the looks.
I really like the FW2011 collection: the fabrics were sleek and clean, the looks free-flowing yet structural. The colors were another highlight: deep orange, the classy citrus green color that I am in love with, and the beige/black combo that America is just starting to get into (the French figured it out a while ago). And like Porter Grey, BCBG opted for boots, a great, practical addition to such feminine pieces.
