Los Angeles-based label BCBG kicked off New York Fashion Week at Lincoln Center on Friday morning, with Max and Lubov Azria showing their fall-winter 2013 collection. The look: Urban bedouin if there is such a thing, with layered loose silk pants, tunics and dresses in laser-cut mosaic-like patterns, worn with fun multicolored, patterned fur coats and baseball jackets. Thigh-high leather legging-boots and slouchy cashmere beanies added a streetwise edge. Palette included blue, burgundy, black and white.

NEW YORK -- The collection: Monika Chiang. Launched in 2011, the brand has stores in L.A. and New York. Chiang is the girlfriend of entrepreneur Chris Burch, who helped launch her brand as well as ex-wife Tory Burch's. Where Tory's look is decidedly uptown, Monika's is downtown -- and after-dark. The inspiration: Street style in South Africa, where Chiang traveled over the New Year's holiday. The look: "Luxe athleticism," as described by Chiang. Black leather skirts with car-wash pleats, embroidered leather bra tops, block-print skinny jeans, biker jackets in leather or stripe canvas, parachute silk pants and anoraks, strappy sandals with skyscraper-high block heels, baseball caps.
