At Herve Leger, designer Max Azria showed his love for zippers. Body-con clothing was heavily embellished with chunky zippers. Zippers follow traditional seam lines in the garments, drawing attention to the intricate construction of the clothing. It also showcases and celebrates a woman’s curves, something the brand is always sure to do. A black mini skirt has a zipper detail that creates a beautiful hourglass figure. A gorgeous leather jacket, one of the most eye-catching pieces from the show, features a small ruffle near the hip made entirely of zippers. The zipper ruffle detail is seen again on a half-corset belt.
Herve Leger is all about embracing feminine power by showing that a woman can be sexy and sophisticated. This collection runs true to that statement. It’s not feminine in the sense of being “girly” and “pretty”; it’s more than that. It shows luxury, success, and power. It’s for a woman who knows what she wants.
