New York Fashion Week: BCBGMAXAZRIA's Strata Of Textures For Fall 2013 [PHOTOS]

On the opening day of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, BCBGMAXAZRIA debuted its Fall 2013 collection with a heavy focus on texture and layering.
Drawing inspiration from Ankara, Turkey’s second largest metropolis, designers Max and Lubov Azria played with layering, but much more streamlined chic than bag-lady.
The strata of textures, a Fall staple, also had a mix of prints, textures and fabrics from leather to wool to fur to chiffon, bringing freedom to the cold weather concept. Wool crewneck sweaters were topped on boxy dresses and tunics paired with leather leggings.
"It sounds a little crazy, but it's also a little bit hippie. It's different than what we've been doing," Max Azria said backstage before the show, a departure from the Spring 2013 collection’s boudoir bondage vibe.
A variety of Fall shades including neutrals, black, white, charcoal, dark blue and chocolate brown added to the care-free vibe, all topped off with a simple black hat.
But had you not shifted your focus downward from the hats, you’d could have missed (impossible, but distractions do happen) the sleekest thigh high stiletto boots known to man. An optical illusion, the shoe appears to be just your average pointy-toed stiletto until the ankle when it transforms into a sexy thigh high boot. Consider it layering for footwear.
