Monday Muse: BCBG Adds Edge to Athleisure

If you could sum up the past few seasons in one word, it would be athleisure. And while you may be sick and tired of hearing the actual word, we’re guessing you’re not sick and tired of actually wearing atheleisure-inspired pieces. After all, it’s super-comfortable and totally on-trend — and it’s not often those two things intersect. L.A.’s very own BCBG Max Azria is taking athleisure into it’s own boho hands, however, giving the trend a new life and making it something to perk up any sort of athleisure malaise.

Instead of offering up variations of yoga leggings and sports bras, BCBG’s Lubov Azria took sportif staples and interpreted them into — and onto — BCBG’s flowing, clean staples. The effect was twofold: loyal fans can skip out on some of the extras to shop the BCBG looks and signatures that they already know and love. Peasant dresses, maxi-dresses, long skirts and tunics were all on offer.

For those who want a taste of sport — the Rio Olympics are just around the corner, after all — separates like sports bras done in jacquard (reminiscent of the bandages of BCBG sister brand, Hervé Léger) that are anything but gym-ready can be thrown over those pieces as well as more masculine picks like button-down shirts. It’s a fresh way to incorporate sporty staples into something that you already own (and love).

Stevie Nicks (a BCBG touchstone at this point) inspired several frocks, thought the bewitching chanteuse would probably not opt for the cinching bra added or the jacquard corsetry. There was a focus on separates, too, and that’s where the athleisure-addicted will be stocking up: mesh tops, off-the-shoulder bra tops and slick harnesses are definitely not something stocked at Lululemon or Nike – and they’re what will catch the eyes of street style photogs and girls looking to add that special sporty touch to their already laid-back wardrobes.
