BCBG Turns Harnesses Sweet, Spins Lace With Leather

When a smooth, quiet violin cover of "Heart Of Glass" came on the speakers at yesterday morning's BCBG Max Azria spring '13 runway show, we were expecting soft and muted hues and shapes to go along with it. Instead, we got body harnesses, shiny leather culottes, and "I'll kick your ass even in these stilettos" stilettos. But all that isn't to say that there wasn't a softer side to the line, too. The well-rounded collection also included sheer and lace floor-length gowns, and a palette of pastels in corals, fluffy greys, and dusty lilacs. And we were seriously digging it. We're always wondering what people are typing on their phones during fashion shows, but just so you know, we were texting each other (obvs) with just two simple words: "I'm inspired."
