Summary: Just when you thought it was safe to spend your winter eating cupcakes…BCBG decided to take it in a notch, particularly after a fall showing of loose fitting clothes. Say buh-bye to the babydoll dress and hello to fitted clothes. Thank god. Everything was erethal, flowy, light as air (read transparent) and muted. This was a great collection for those of us who dabble in color but are afraid to commit.
