Hervé Léger F-W 2015 — An Anniversary in Style

Herve Leger FW15

For Hervé Léger’s Fall-Winter collection–a celebration of of 30 years of Léger–Max and Lubov Azria found divine inspiration at Antoni Gaudí’s famed La Sagrada Família cathedral in Barcelona. Lubov’s personal photos of the sparkling stained glass windows and ceiling were transformed into rich patterns and body-con knit jacquards. Even Gaudí’s miniature wooden models of the cathedral gave rise to taupe bandage dresses. Azria credits the church’s facades for the collection’s three acts.

The first is birth, as represented by the blooming flowers and birds pictured on the dresses and bomber jackets. The sequins, beads and grommets protruding from the material symbolize growth. The second act is passion, which can be seen in the darker, more gothic pieces. Studs and embroidery add a little rock and roll. For the final act, models were sent down the runway in art nouveau-inspired mini dresses.

Max Azria said: “This year we are presenting an Hervé Léger collection with a big change. For example, the big change for me is that you are going to see a collection featuring short dresses, because beforehand Hervé Léger only had long dresses.”

That wasn’t the only change seen at the show. The brand showcased less skin and more sophistication than previous seasons.

Nevertheless, Hervé Léger’s signature bandage dress still left little to the imagination.
