Umm...it was as if this collection had split personalities, with the depressive personality ascendant. BCBG has previously been one of my go-to brands, offering sensual, beautifully tailored clothes; but not this coming Fall. The collection presents the dichotomy of lovely dresses, inspired by the Marlene Dietrich era, contrasted with hideous space pod coats and shapeless, drab muumuus. Bon Chic, Bon Genre?* Not so much.
The deranged, the droopy, the dorky:
Seriously, Uncle Max, if I, who am your longtime fan, your cheering section — I, who want to love each outfit you design — if I, of all people, am wondering if the alien's have abducted you, then how will those not favorably predisposed toward your collection react?
"Oi, oi, oi!" I say.

* Translates something like "Very chic, great attitude."
