Perfectly Pleated Collections

The BCBG Max Azria Pre-Fall 2012 Collection is Mesmerizing

— December 15, 2011 — Fashion
The Pre-Fall 2012 shows have been incredibly impressive thus far, and the BCBG Max Azria Pre-Fall 2012 collection is certainly no exception. For a brand that is famous for creating skintight, playful mini-dresses, the use of chiffon, lace and pleating is quite the departure from the label's aesthetic, but it is welcome nonetheless.

The youthful feel of the BCBG Max Azria Pre-Fall 2012 collection is undeniable. Flirty silhouettes, graphic prints and leather detailing make this collection playful and fun, yet also ultimately wearable. Designers Max and Lubov Azria told Style.com that their Pre-Fall offering is meant to give off a feeling of "Slavic soul meets bohemian spirit."

Check out the BCBG Max Azria Pre-Fall 2012 collection for some inspiration for spring.
