BCBGMAXAZRIA F/W11

Soft, delicate, chic and strong, today, at a u shaped BCBG MAX AZRIA runway: models looked very modern in a mix of something that maybe we can call as the new modernist boho-chic. The delicate boldness of each piece made an impressively strong collection, where few details like ruffles, prints and colored lines in gave the last touch to some of the garments.

The color palette played a strong representation of bright bold colors like deep teal, scarlet red, black and nougat which in fact created a huge statement for the collection; but also the fabrics spoke for themselves. All those sheer garments covering no longer than above the knee’s and layered with belted tunics in soft fabrics, made us feel that minimalism still in Max Azria’s heart. The vigorous tenacious effect of layering white cream-type of spandex, turtle necks, bold bright emberglow dresses, sheer layered garments and pairing them with high knee leather boots, produced a feeling that women do not need show that much to demonstrate she’s elegant, chic and sophisticated .

Sculptural accessories in luxurious textures articulate a modern elegance”.

DUCKIE BROWN F/W11

Shimmer, asymmetry and abstraction are 3 characteristics that can define Duckie Brown’s 21 piece collection of F/W2011. The combination of textiles and playfulness of the dark colour pallet gave a classic collection with modernist touches and asymmetrical cuts. Models Jacob Coupe, Lowell Tautshin and Yuri Pleskun where carrying the variety of vintage pieces while retro music played in the background.

From charcoal, grey and black to star white, the collection may have changed in form but remained in style. Signature details and cuts, commonly associated with Duckie Brown prevailed over the runway. The clothes had a modernist twist that brought the classic pieces to the 21st century. Added features like shimmer on suit pants, asymmetric cuts on cotton shirts and abstract prints on wool blazers and other pieces, gave the collection a fast forward to the present. Keep posted for an enlarged review, including Mark Indelicato’s presence in the venue.
