Max Azria's signature collection followed the Fall 2007 Fashion Week trend of showing a line of neutral tones in grey, brown and black with occasional dashes of muted grey-greens and golds (after all, it is for fall). There were flirty knee-length skirts paired with slouchy jackets and voluminous sweaters topped by even more voluminous overdresses. And to add a bit of dazzle, Azria pumped up his collection with some hot little metallic tops and cocktail dresses.

This is a very wearable and fun collection. It has an esthetic of "I was in a hurry so I just grabbed the first thing in my closet [but you would die for what's in my closet]."

Of especial note was the metallic cocktail dress worn with a menswear plaid coat and topped off by a fur hat. Now, that is a look that would stop traffic on Portobello Road and Ludlow Street.
