PreFall 2016: Hervé Léger by Max Azria
Despite the attempts to pull away from the bandage dress and body con reputation of the Hervé Léger brand this past year, Max and Lubov Azria understand which side their bread is buttered. After a couple of rounds playing down the signature dress, for PreFall, they went back to what will sell, since this is one of the collections that sits in the store longest.
But it wasn’t all back to the bandage and harness basics at the Azria show. The pant look, which they’ve been slowly working in showed up a couple of times, though mashed with the bandage hallmarks gave the jumpsuit something of a futuristic armor feel. And the jacket and blouse overlays also made a good impact, suggesting that there is a way to thread the needle between nothing but curves and a little bit more of a forgiving silhouette for the Azrias to play with into 2016 and beyond.
