BCBGMaxAzria Fall Winter 2015: Neutrals with Pops of Colour

It’s interesting.  When I first started writing about BCBG, the runway pieces were very different from what one might see in the boutiques.  It’s changed since Max Azria got rid of his namesake line to concentrate exclusively on BCBG and Hervé Leger.  For a while, it was a bit difficult to distinguish between the two […]

BCBGMaxAzria: Soft, Flowy and Best of All, Petite-Friendly

…for the most part, anyway.  And perhaps they’ve heard enough complaints from people like yours truly!  Traditionally, the “runway collection” presented at New York Fashion Week was very artistic, and definitely not wearable by the vast majority.  However, the same can’t be said for the upcoming collection.  In fact, I have to admit that I’m […]

BCBG Max Azria Runway: Not Short Girl Friendly – AGAIN

I think I’ve had it with BCBG Max Azria – the runway pieces, anyway.  They sell them at many their stores – especially in higher end neighbourhoods – but the pieces are almost never wearable, unless you look like a model.  And yes, the upcoming fall/winter season is no different.  The skirt lengths were, for […]

BCBG’s Spring/Summer 2014 Collection – Wearable Art, Not Flattering on Most

I have to admit that I have a love-hate relationship with BCBG.  In my 20s, I would purchase at least one jersey dress a summer.  I still have most of the dresses, so my BCBG collection dates back to the early 2000s.  However, lately, the line has tried to become more “fashion-y” – even with […]

New York Fashion Week Starts Today!

And like previous seasons, DelectablyChic! will be covering some of the shows remotely (watching online), including BCBG, Nanette Lepore and Tory Burch.  We are hoping to post a review of at least one show a day. Will you be watching any of the shows?  Which designer are you most looking forward to seeing?  Or will […]

Basic Summer Outfits: Dresses and Lightweight Jeans

With the temperatures well into the mid-20s Celsius, it’s time to turn over to a permanent summer wardrobe – something that I will be wearing for the next few months.  Because it can get quite humid in Toronto in the warmer months, I tend to wear very casual dresses or skirts over pants – though […]

BCBGMaxAzria Goes Grunge for Fall 2013

BCBGMaxAzria is heading back to the early 90s with the Fall/Winter 2013 collection.  Long loose tunics and dresses, accompanied with skinny jeans and sloppy styles gives off a grungy vibe, though definitely more updated.  The look is a little neater, more hipster, but definitely not for everyone.  Colour-wise, there is an emphasis once again, on […]

Shop ‘Til You Drop Hits Toronto

Last night, LouLou Magazine’s annual event, Shop ‘Til You Drop hit the Toronto streets.  Participating stores included Banana Republic, Holt Renfrew, BCBG and the Gap.  Ann Taylor, which opened its first Canadian store at the Eaton Centre last week, featured a “style squad,” who wandered around  Bloor Street handing out postcards inviting participants to the […]

Fighter-inspired BCBG Collection Lacks Colour for Spring/Summer 2013

Unlike the regular line (and especially the 2012 collections), BCBG’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection was not exactly Herve Leger Redux (seems to be a “thing” for Max Azria these days – this season, BCBG boutiques are filled with bodycon/bandage dresses that look like they were reworked from previous Herve Leger collections). The collection is filled with […]

Pondering: Is BCBGMaxAzria becoming Herve Leger Lite?

If you read the DeletablyChic! Closet, you might have noted my “typical summer wardrobe” piece on BCBG jersey dresses.  What I didn’t note is that there seemed to be fewer jersey options this past season.  Instead, BCBG MaxAzria boutiques were mostly dominated by bandage dresses this past season.  Yes, the same “body con” dresses that […]
