Leathers and furs. Blues, burgundies, and soft neutrals. A collection "inspired by the beautiful history inlaid within ... Istanbul", I absolutely loved the BCBGMAXAZRIA show. It was sportswear... "with just the right amount of feminine appeal", all topped off with sumptuous cashmere beanies... and it was the perfect inspiration for the edgier looks I've been liking for the past couple of seasons.
After spending the morning experiencing the hectic backstage environment of a MBFW show, we sat down in our front row seats (!) and watched all of Max & Lubov's hard work come to life. It was such a blessing to be able to see the clothes and models so up close, and it certainly gave me a new appreciation for each and every designer that puts out an entire collection season after season! Following the show, I spent a few lovely hours before my flight home with Kelly; we made a trip to Ladurée, then wandered around the Upper East Side on Madison as well as 5th Avenue. It was the perfect ending to a fast paced trip, and I'm already dreaming of the next time I get to visit this incredibly energized city.
