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 […]

Hervé Léger: The Show, Styling and Size Friendliness

Once again, Hervé Léger provided the audience with the typical, bodycon looks.  Ranging from below-the-knee dresses to shorter pieces and some body suits, there really isn’t that much of a deviation, save for a few select styles (namely the fringey skirts).  No surprise, of course.  It’s the signature, after all.  Therefore, it’s probably better to […]

Hervé Léger Spring 2014: Great for Petite Gals

Many of us here in Toronto are too busy covering TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) to really write about New York Fashion Week, but I’ve decided to juggle both and post this piece about the Hervé Léger Spring/Summer 2014 collection.  I love Hervé Léger.  Max and Lubov Azria and their team manage to put together […]

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 […]

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 […]

Petite Friendliness and Hervé Léger: A Total Yay?

I like much of the collection, especially the pairing of the dresses with tall boots (this style is pretty much all I wear in the winter.  Glad to see that I won’t look out of place next year – lol).  Most of the skirt lengths are above the knee, which means that they’d be right […]

Hervé Léger F/W2012-2013: The Equestrian Warrior Biker Chick

Some may call Hervé Léger by Max Azria the same old, season after season.  After all, bandage dresses are bandage dresses, right? Wrong!  The Fall/Winter collection was definitely something.  From warrior and equestrian-inspired pieces on dresses  to fringes and a not-so subtle sophisticated biker look, the collection is definitely on the wish lists of many […]

BCBG Spring-Summer 2012: Vibrant and Flowy, but Shapeless

Ever notice that BCBG’s runway collection looks very different from the “regular” pieces (suits, jersey dresses and evening gowns) sold at its own boutiques and department stores?  The Spring-Summer collection is probably no different, and was, once again, more unique.  Most of the dresses were at least tea length, asymetrical, with strappy, sleeveless or bare […]
