The BCBG Max Azria customer can do a little wandering in her closet next fall.

The collection that designers Max and Lubov Azria presented Thursday at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week had a nomadic, bohemian vibe but not one filtered through their hometown of Paris or home base of Los Angeles.

These clothes came to the runway on the opening day of Fashion Week with an inspiration rooted in Istanbul’s architecture and the Gypsies of southern Europe.

Printed boxy shift dresses were worn over fluid lingerie-like underpinnings. Long vests — both fur and cashmere — topped cozy crewnecks. There were more layers, with leather leggings or lizard thigh-high boots that had the effect of leggings peeking out from the hemlines of dresses and sweaters.

“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 at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week tents at Lincoln Center.

Why the change from more structured styles from spring?

“My wife likes it all. She likes the colors, the prints, the textures. She likes to see a melange,” he said.
