BCBG Max Azria New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016 NYFW FW16

The BCBG Max Azria New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2016Collection features experimentation with layering, silhouette, and construction: while the sleeveless coats have me from the get-go, some of the looks are bulky. So long as the natural waist is cinched, it worked, but when garments are piled on top of one another it just looks bag-lady.  The silhouettes work so long as they don’t give this fat illusion- which no one wants- for example, volume is played with on the sleeves, while the kimono belting works to define the natural waist. The color palette consists of white, gray, blues from light to navy, black, taupe, golden rod, beige, burgundy and ruddy rusts, with the slightest touch of pea green.  I actually love the way the strapped maxi dress looks over the body suit.

The BCBG NYFW FW16 Collection is full of interesting silhouettes and looks, although some should be restyled, graded heavily, and constructed differently for real-life consumers, because if you make a model look fat…it’s not gonna make a real woman happy.
