Although the brand's website is still live, displaying the spring/summer 2017 resort collection, the company is said to be moving towards closing freestanding stores in Canada and consolidating its operations in Europe and Japan, in addition to the 120 retail stores set to be closed as part of restructuring efforts.

The company – the name of which is an acronym for the French phrase "bon chic, bon genre", meaning "good style, good attitude" - was established in the late Eighties by Tunisian designer Max Azria but saw its heyday in the Nineties and Noughties. Its brightly coloured form-fitting dresses became firm fixtures on the red carpet worn by stars including Sarah Jessica Parker, Heidi Klum, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock and Eva Longoria.
