Max and Lubov Azria move color blocking forward for fall (ahhh, yes, they had plenty for spring) with Bauhaus-inspired shift and pleated dresses – some with contrasting insets – many topped with patchwork coats of different proportions.
Sometimes it all got a little complicated: a strong-shouldered leather, canvas, recycled fur patched coat atop a pleated, color-blocked skirt – whew.
That said, many of the dresses on their own, even a jumpsuit or two, were positively dreamy.
Front-rower Maria Menounos bolted upright at the last two looks: airy color-blocked gowns in cream and black…perfect for the party.
