Sketches from BCBGMAXAZRIA's Fall 2015 collection.
"Ingenue." And the above sketches. That's all we
know so far about BCBGMAXAZRIA's Fall 2015 runway presentation taking place next week--the descriptor being the inspiration behind chief creative officer Lubov Azria's collection this season. So what could that mean? Let's break this down into several key--if slightly embellished--possibilities, given everything we've been told about the L.A.-based label's fall collection (and from the definition of ingenue).
1. There will be frocks.
The uniform of the sweet and virginal ingenue based on her stock character in literature (for concrete examples, refer to Grimm fairy tales and every Disney movie made).
2. White is the new black.
For obvious reasons (i.e. said sketches) and because our Ingenue knows no better, more literal way to convey her carefree approach to life than with an airy, ivory dress.

3. You're going to want to hold on to your over-the-knee boots.
For at least another season. (Or forever--we
stand by our investments
here at ELLE.) And if we're going by a cost-per-wear analysis, they'll have paid themselves off by next fall. Here's to good sartorial choices ahead. Happy fashion week!
