I couldn’t quite place my finger on it, but this was not the typical Max Azria collection you see during fashion week. I can think back maybe 5 fashion weeks and know that this was a different Fall collection. Typically that’s stating the obvious, but you can see similar design hues and at the very least some sort of evolution. Azria’s Fall 2013 collection wasn’t so much an evolution but more a departure from previous seasonal forays. For example, Azria mixed vibrant prints with darker colors. He had embroidered leather work in a color block, a beautiful sheer black full length short sleeve piece draped over sexy leather pants. He also had a strapless puffed cocktail dress that fell just at the knee that was simply stunning.
Azria started Fall 2013 with the right notes and chances are it will carry on with the Herve’ Leger and BCBG showings later this week.
