Pre-Spring Preview: BCBG Max Azria

BCBG Max Azria is going into the wild for pre-spring ’12. The collection was inspired by silhouettes and natural textures from the 1970s, but has a decidedly tribal vibe. Peep-toe wedges and strappy gladiators embrace the exotics, while multicolor platform sandals nod to Navajo details with stenciled wooden heels. In addition to over-the-top styles such as laser-cut and studded metallic pumps, BCBG Max Azria also offers more subtle basics, including neutral-colored flatforms and booties. The pre-spring styles will retail for $195 to $350 and be available at BCBG Max Azria stores, Saks Fifth Avenue, Shopbop.com and other retailers.
