BCBG Maxazria - Fur Blocking

Bold outerwear - bombers, ponchos, biker jackets, parkas, and vests - with swathes of shearling and fur was the theme at BCBG Maxazria Fall Winter 2014 Colection. Max and Lubov seemed to have deftly anticipated the frigid, slush-encumbered weather of New York, as their shearling tunics, fur-trimmed moto jackets in lavender and black, and fur-blocked capes all felt like instant necessities.

The collection offered a sweatshirt as an outerwear piece, cut from cable-knit rabbit fur and creating the effect of a cozy fur coat with no opening. The sturdy outerwear enveloped delicate flowing silk dresses and menswear shirts for a masculine-feminine balance, while knee-high boots featured prominently throughout. Blocking was a big theme here - not just color blocking, but fur blocking - in the form of separates striped with alternating bands of fur, shearling, and leather. Notable examples included the printed jacquard sweatshirt with shearling on the sleeves and a raccoon fur collar, and a leather high-low cape featuring blocks of shearling and fur.

Graphic stripes on silk crepe dresses and caftans furthered the geometric theme. Some dresses even seemed to be tailored around their vivid stripes - diagonal stripes along a grey suiting dress had the effect of lifting one end of the asymmetrical hem by some gravitational force. A fitting effect for the design duo that has once again proven itself a force to be reckoned with.
