Herve Leger by Max Azria Fall/Winter 2016-2017 RTW – NYFW

Chic, sophisticated, sexy and elegant all mixed into a single runway show presenting thirty-one different looks is exactly what would define the Herve Leger by Max Azria fall/winter 2016-2017 ready-to-wear collection as per the New York Fashion Week runway show. Black, white, scarlet, dove grey, and some shades of blue and green are what define this line-up of truly lovely pieces that we know will be knocking the socks off near anyone.

Herve Leger by Max Azria Fall/ Winter 2016-2017 RTW - NYFW

There has always been a certain love for the Herve Leger label to the Max Azria empire, though BCBG holds its own charm and barely a candle can hold up to its magnificence from time to time. For this year though, we have to say that the Herve Leger pieces are splendid, completely soaking us in with their ability to render one speechless. We should mention that a lot of that is due to the color combinations on the prints used on the skirts, from the stripes to the more plaid versions. It has a classic model meets the future effect really, particularly when combined with strategic cutouts along the neckline of a dress. Legs are not shown here and are certainly not a focus, even if the use of tights and boots is common practice.

Footwear includes tall over the knee boots and shorter ankle length ones, all in a shiny black color. From time to time they do not even show under the maxi skirts in gorgeous colors and prints. There are no handbags in sight, which is interesting, while the models seem to enjoy the lack of jewelry and ornamentation, instead revelling in the exquisite cuts to the dresses themselves. For example, the final piece of the night featured a round neck bandage dress, combining bondage and corseted appeals with strips and fringe, the arms mostly bared, the tops of the breasts apparent and the décolletage accentuated.

Legs are clad in black tights and platform boots up to the knees. To say it is lovely is an understatement. This manner of style appears among quite a few pieces shown off later in the show, including those in black and white, while a futuristic grey dress with fringed hems takes the spotlight otherwise.

We notice dresses and tops that have a certain armor-style look to them, while others instead appear to be all stitched together to make it one piece. The stitching also turns to chains on a few pieces, only adding to the overall charm.

What we love is the demure nature of the Herve Leger fall 2016 collection overall, with hems falling mainly to the knees and the only parts of the body bared to the world being the arms from time to time, some regions around and under the décolletage and the neck. It is quite tame, while still maintaining a rather comely effect. We will definitely be heading in to the Herve Leger retailers for this year’s top party dresses, especially since we like things a little subdued after passing the first quarter of a century of life.
