Summary: For his final show at the tents, Maz Azria teamed up with his beloved wife Lubov in creating a collection that resonated a way far different from the candy-colored looks of BCBG and the signature bandage of Herve Leger. The Azrias chose to focus on the sleekest, most minimalistic statements for their fall '10 collection, picking neutral shades in bone, nude, and black, to serve as canvases for the architectural designs.
The collection boasted clean lines and a unique sort of abstract symmetry. Strategically placed sheer panels, inter-lapping fabrics and meticulous draping all added to this sense of a simplistic future of fashion. Although many of the pieces possessed a sort of pieced-together look—caused by swaths of silk, crepe, and leather folded together to create a duality of light and shadow—it resonated with polish and never once came off as messy. You could see how much thought went into such an understated collection, how each flap of fabric or slice of mesh was carefully drafted and accounted for. And while it may not have been the most aesthetically exciting collection I've seen so far, it was a true testament to the constructive skills of a designer with two other labels under his belt, who finally got to play.
