What more can one do with the iconic Hervé Léger bandage dress?! Oh, plenty, according to Creative Director Lubov Azria. Scuba gear has taken to the streets, and in a pre-show interview, Lubov expressed her excitement over the rubberized textures of the new collection. Sport and sex came together flawlessly, and the stretch was seen on mink pullovers and loads of layers (crocodile print over bandage, shagreen dresses over bandage).
Animal and kaleidoscopic prints amped up the energy, but the brand’s iconic heritage was retained, as they pulled silhouettes from the archives, then updated them with modern technology and most importantly, Lubov’s keen eye for sensuality.
I have been collecting Hervé Léger dresses since the ‘90s (a perennial celeb, not to mention a Real Housewives of…you-name-it star, favorite). Honestly, I thought I was over the snap-happy bandage. Until this season. Welcome to the new era of the bandage dress! Take yours shaken with separates and a little less in-your-face skin (just remember the waist, exposed or not, is the key body part in play). And for you gutsy girls, spice yours up with a baseball cap, the perfect athletic juxtaposition for a super-sexy dress.
