BCBG Max Azria is most definitely a Joonbug fashion favorite. The pieces are both fashion forward, yet very wearable in the city. We here at JB also enjoy sharing our experiences with those that read our columns. If you have ever wondered what it's like to sit in a VIP area at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week -- we have the inside scoop just for you!
American Express returned to Lincoln Center with the exclusive American Express Skybox, where cardmembers experienced the week’s most exciting shows in a premium Cardmember Lounge perched high above the runways. Before the presentation, guests enjoyed a delicious breakfast from a menu curated by FOOD & WINE®, another member of the American Express family. Delicious menu items in the American Express Skybox featured a roster of well-known chefs that are included in the October 1st release of the FOOD & WINE™ Best New Chefs All-Star Cookbook. Over the past 25 years the magazine has helped launch the careers of hundreds of chefs, and is celebrating this milestone by highlighting a superstar Best New Chef from each year like Thomas Keller (’88), Tom Colicchio (’91) and David Chang (’06) in this new cookbook. The food was fabulous and attendees cheered the runway show with tasty mimosas. A great way to celebrate Fashion Week, we might add!
As we entered the chic, plush and inviting Skybox there was a buzz in the air about the upcoming BCBG NYFW show. Journalists, card members and other fashionable attendees were on hand to preview the Spring/Summer 2014 Collections.
The vibe of the collection was very clean -- with black, white and scattered pops of color seen throughout. While some garments had very sleek cuts and crops -- there were also many boho-chic accents that BCBG is well known for during the spring and summer months. There was a lot of attention to details -- it was all in the details. The uses of lace, the cuts of the garments and the edition of a sexy shoe made this runway show a crowd favorite. Hair and makeup were left clean and simple to let the gorgeous Spring/Summer 2014 BCBG collection shine through. We are already longing for the warmer months.
