2012 New York S/S Fashion Week: BCBG

BCBG cited Spring’s fresh energy and an urban, global spirit as inspiration for the Spring 2012 collection, which was dedicated almost entirely to soft, breezy dresses. Silk crepe and sheer chiffon fabrics were cut to flow away from the body via asymmetric hems, thigh-high slits, drop-waist, knife pleats, and peekaboo shoulders. There was a sporty element too, thanks to exposed bands in contrasting colours that looked like bra straps and sheer chiffon track jackets, complete with a hoodie and zipper. Then came the prints, first geometric juxtapositions of colours that channeled the art-deco designs of the 1920s before morphing into tribal-inspired embroidery and beading. If it sounds like a mishmash, it was, but the result worked in a collection that was softly edgy and self-assured.

  • Trends: Sporty, tribal, colorblocking, knife pleats, cutout shoulders.
  • Colours: Coral, cobalt, yellow, teal, navy, and neutrals.
  • Key Piece: The finale dresses that blended crocheted embroidery onto silk chiffon.
  • Who Would Wear It: Any of the gorgeous front row celebs — Jordana Brewster, Angela Lindvall, Elisha Cuthbert, and Julia Jones — would look amazing in these dresses.
