We’re all grown up enough to not be shocked that fashion trickles down. (See Miranda Priestly, cerulean.) If the kernel of today’s ideas inevitably began with Phoebe Philo, there were some solidly stylish options here for a realistic price. A more interesting matter for debate: Will minimal and midi serve as a lure for the decidedly youthful (or certainly youthfully spirited) BCBG customer?

The collection began with a monochrome style but slowly panels of colour were introduced to the designs. Rounded necklines and sleeveless dresses were quite popular for this season. I loved the messy coloured panels that were introduced with the black backgrounds. I felt that it gave the designs a bit of edginess and attitude. Even with the light overlay of sheer material for a feminine touch.
With only a few colours this collection took inspiration from the common shirt. I loved how many different ways a shirt can turn into. Some of my favourites are the asymmetrical hemlines and the shirtdress that was half pleated.
