I thought I was pretty much done with the modest forecast for Pre-Fall of 2014, when I did my write-up based on the last slew of shows. Then BCBG debuted their collection, and I felt the need to crack open the proverbial can of runway once again. The concept of Pre-Fall is literally what we wear in between the seasons, when we transition from Summer to Fall. Some designers create a collection that rushes into things, and immediately thrusts us into the hands of Autumn, with no polite introductions, and nary a backwards glance.
However, BCBG’s Max Azria has created a mostly modest collection that is giving us the faculties necessary to cross the bridge between the warm and cool seasons with ease; not too heavy, not too light. The designer continues to step up his game, and has delivered us a refreshingly sophisticated palette of color and cut to look forward to. It also doesn’t hurt that the brand is relatively reasonable in terms of price, and has made itself accessible to the modest masses.
