One word: Exhilarating. Hard edge graphics and tribal music gently blended and folded into soft floating chiffons and silks: Max Azria is going back to the earth with BCBG. The ever popular duo Max and Lubov Azria have put together another wonderful collection for Spring 2012. Starting with neutrals and glimmers of light, the collection quickly moved with a tribal beat and bright accents. Models nearly marched in wooden platforms but the feathery, fluid fabrics fluttered behind. And the drums beat louder. The signature poppy was sprinkled here and there mixed like an impressionist painting with bold swipes of saffron, navy, emerald, and lemongrass. The entire collection was about the contrast between soft and bold, dark and light, earth and fire, bondage and freedom. And the drums beat on.
