I am so grateful that Anjali Patel covered some of FW for me this season as I couldn't make it to NYC this month, first because of my schedule, then because of Nemo!
I first met Anjali at Fashion Week last September (when we both asked each other for photographs with Vanessa Williams after the Carlos Miele show) and I knew she'd have fun covering backstage (Miss USA was there!) and runway for Hogger & Co.
Here's what she had to say about BCBG Max Azria Fall and Winter Collection:
Bon Chic, Bon Genre. I think the word to define BCBG FW 2013 collection would be attitude, as in an edgy attitude. The only thing soft about this collection is the fur. Lace mixed with knit sweaters and caps are draped with bold and bright animal print fur to create a luxury bohemian look. I really like the heels with leather leggings and steel toes to create a sexy open toe boot look. The leather has a masculine aesthetic but the cut and stitching combinations are very feminine. For those that are looking for a non snow bunny look next Fall, BCBG has several choices for you. The FW collection color palette ranges from pure white (even after Labor Day) to deep purple and blues. I see this as a collection of contrasts: leather and lace, white and dark, fur and sheer silk. Asymmetrical skirts show just enough skin but balance the outfit.
