Black may have been the basis of DKNY's collection, but in a nod to the Eighties, pops of vibrant color were key in the lineup of festive little party dresses. Meanwhile, Max Azria knocked out three resort collections, all featuring punchy brights. For his namesake collection, he served up dresses in cerulean and citrus hues, along with sophisticated silk pantsuits. At BCBG, a rainbow of colors dominated in soft cocktail frocks. And for his Hervé Léger lineup, Azria stayed true to the Eighties feel with ultratight, ultrabright bandage dresses and bodysuits.
