What the #*BCBG*#! was that? NYFW day 1

I’m so confused. It started off like what we would expect from BCBG.  Clean flowy lines with luxurious layers in some muted tones which blend well with Fall.  Done.  That’s what I want and expect from BCBG.  Affordable luxury.  Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.10.27 PM

Then it all went, in this Editor’s humble opinion, a little haywire. Boho meets Disco?  BOHSCO ?   I don’t get it. It’s like there were two complete separate collections and they just layered them over each other because someone couldn’t decide which direction to go.I really wonder if you were to redress the models one way or another what the show would have looked like?

Case in point,  I’m not sure faux ripped sparkle stockings paired with a boho dress or a leather skirt and a sparkled tunic  over a silver tube top belong in a show like BCBG.  These disco, punk influences are those we would expect in a Saint Laurent show.  We love them in a Saint Laurent show it makes sense.  I don’t see how a perfectly constructed BCBG dress needs to be placed over what can only be described as an ice-skating costume and yet I’m watching it walk down the runway.  Why feel the need to  pander to the hipster set?  I love the brand, I love the previous collections.  This one just  loses something in translation. It seems a little all over the place. And last mention..what’s up with the weird shoes? Slipper meets gladiator meets I’m not sure.

Here’s some images, I’ll let you guys decide.Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.12.07 PMScreen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.11.39 PMScreen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.28.06 PM Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.28.19 PM Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.28.57 PM Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.29.05 PM Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.29.20 PM Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.29.44 PMScreen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.11.13 PM Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.11.28 PM Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.11.46 PM Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 2.11.56 PM
