What do you do when you are celebrating 30 years in the fashion industry? Well if you are Max Azria, the man behind the Hervé Léger brand you send 60 body-con looks down the catwalk.
It’s true that this brand’s bread and butter over the past three decades has been its form fitting bandage designs, and there was quite a lot of it on the runway on Saturday. But the house wasn’t sitting on its sartorial laurels. This season there was a clear intention by the brand to expand the silhouette repertoire to incorporate more sculptural volume and intriguing textural surface embellishments.
Top marks go to the lattice work dresses that were adorned with three dimensional appliqué blooms, a tunic top with architectural flying buttress sleeves and the swing skirted dress covered in colorful rivulets of macramé.
The finale of the show was also a nice touch. A fast paced retrospective line up of key past looks that highlighted perfectly the exact reasons way this brand has stayed on the fashion radar for such a long time.
