Ever wonder where the creative folks get their inspirations from? More often than not, they will say that it can be everywhere, anything and everything- and designer Lubov Azria has helped add a lot more credibility to such idea by revealing that her spring collection was born in none other than a carpet store; that fateful moment when she laid her eyes on a stack of artisanal rugs. It is important to note that however, that it wasn’t the typical qualities of basic rugs that we normally think of, but the exceptional artistic values of special type of rugs that go through an over-dying process called Color Reform that got her creative juices flowing. While the embossed belts and the use of quilted fabric were reminiscent of Taekwondo uniforms or Kimono of sort, ones that really stood out in the end were the simple pieces such as the culotte overall (or a jumpsuit, whichever suits better), or the finale pieces in which romantic fluidity met rigidity of the embossed/quilted belts tied asymmetrically to give the looks a sense of empowerment and strength that is, quintessentially, BCBG Max Azria.
