OVERALL TAKEAWAY: This season Max and Lubov Azria drew inspiration from the iconic black-and-white photography of Helmut Newton. The collection featured an array of delicate lace and silk crepe dresses juxtaposed by harsh and edgy leather harnesses and aprons (yes, leather aprons). The combination of the two translated into a sexy lingerie-esque collection that felt totally wearable outside of the bedroom.

Though hemlines were lengthened to mid-calf or floor-length, backs were exposed through peek-a-boo cutouts covered in lace. The color palette was minimal focusing on blacks, whites, soft pinks, and the occasional vintage-washed chambray blue that added a more casual element to a collection that begged for evening soirees.

Though this is only the first official show of the season, if the rest of the collections look as ethereal, edgy, and sensual as BCBGMAXAZRIA’s, we won’t be the least bit disappointed.
