The latest BCBG Max Azria collection to cascade the runway isn’t far beyond your buying reach. While getting the scoop backstage in hair and makeup (and taking selfies on Instagram with the designer Max Azria himself!) I discovered in a new social shopping twist, BCBG included “how to buy” the ready to wear runway looks by “liking” an Instagram photo from the collection.
The Instagram shopping tool stems from collaboration between BCBGMaxAzria and the LIKEtoKNOW.it service, which sends an email to users who have “liked” an Instagram photo a link to buy it from the designer’s website. In all, the design house said, nine looks were available for purchase via the new system.
If you fell in love with the spring show flowing with bohemian vibes and plenty of pale, pastels and ethereal colors like bare pink, light blush, aqua, gray violet and lavender, then you’ll be happy to know that the latest collection from BCBGMaxAzria has plenty to go around.
Designers Max Azria and his wife, Lubov, described their Spring 2015 collection as a mix of “timeless elegance with bohemian silhouettes.” The emphasis was on long, filmy garments belted at the waist, in subtle prints or, often, a simple one-color look. A white embroidered motorcycle jacket, though, was my favorite piece paired with a cotton skirt and cotton mesh embroidered top — all in white.
Check out some of my favorite pieces from the collection below.

“Every year the women of New York leave the past behind and look forward to the future…this is known as fashion week.” – Carrie Bradshaw ‘Sex and the City’
BCBGMAXAZRIA Then & Now
Every New York Fashion Week, I find myself looking back at seasons past to guide my Lincoln Center uniform and get a gasp on closet “must haves” for the upcoming season. Drifting through magazines in search for the season’s hottest trends, can become a bit cumbersome – so I thought, why not just go back to the source? Designer runways is where all the hot trends are birthed, so why not revisit designer runway pasts while in anticipation of next season’s hautest looks.
Looking for ways to transition your summer wardrobe into cool, crisp Autumn months? One word. Layers. Silk shift dresses laid the foundation of the BCBGMAXAZRIA gypsy-infused Fall 2013. Add cleanly knit, slouchy sweaters and beanies coupled with a choice of loose-fitting outerwear and you’ve got the collection down in a nutshell.
