"We were inspired by nature and modern art. Contemporary art inspired the choice of vivid colors, while more muted tones glean inspiration from the natural beauty of the world around us," says Lubov Azria, Chief Creative Officer of BCBGMAXAZRIA.


Last season, Herve Leger presented an unreal collection for Max Azria, filled with leather baseball caps and over-the-top dresses. We're excited to see what the warmer weather will bring.

"Different cultural and geological references inspire the collection as seen in ancient tribes and tradition," says Lubov Azria.


Don't fear the color! If you're a fan of Mara Hoffman, you'll need to make room in your wardrobe for the brights. With fans like Jessica Alba and Rihanna, she's a designer to know about.

"I call this collection 'a gang of rainbow warriors.' If there were ever a gang that worshipped rainbows, this is what they would wear," says Mara Hoffman.
