Herve Leger by Max Azria Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Once we pronounce Herve Leger, the first thing that comes to our mind is bandage dress or vice versa. That association has grown so strong that Max Azria, who acquired the bandage dress cradle in September 1998, did not manage to abandon those form-fitting sensual dresses that have already become the brand’s signature. The only changes that the American designer has made were to add “by Max Azria” to the brand’s existing name and some new designs and touches to the existing bandage dress. What you should know from the very beginning about the fashion house is that bandage dresses will never stop appearing on the catwalk when New York Fashion week is on and will always get manipulated by Max Azria and his wife Lubov Azria only to be revived with brand new fabrics and designs. What we see in the Herve Leger by Max Azria spring/summer 2016 collection is another revival that the bandage dresses have experienced.

The very first sounds of the lounge beating music accompanying the runway show could give us a cue that the collection would be all about a fresh and upbeat cocktail party with an array of bandage dresses affected by the pair’s creative mind. Some of the dresses, pants and jumpsuits were typical cocktail options with their cocktail-glass designs. The onlookers could instantly find inverted cone bowls fixed on the sleeves, on the pants or on the bottom parts of the dresses playfully flirting on the models. More body molding staples with triangular hemlines were carrying floral appliqués wildly grown on the trellis. Investing in macramé knotting, textured jacquards and studded pieces was quite a rational decision by the designers to infuse some touches of luxury and opulence in the collection. The attempt to diffuse luxurious air on the runway was crowned with success.

In the midst of the show the designers sent out a chic and extravagant handmade macramé knotted frock with an oval opening at the chest. But what made the audience gaze at the dress for a long time was its crazy movements while the model was walking, an effect made through two side slits and refined macramé. Even more shocking was an all-white jumpsuit that apart from having an open shoulder design was sensually baring the model’s hips, as well. The pastel colors of white, ivory, pink and aqua blue were filling the runway show with serenity and harmony beneath that nirvana music.

It seemed that our admiration would end in here but Max Azria and his wife had made a white retrospective surprise for us consisted of 30 staggering pieces among which Hollywood stars are sure to find red carpet worthy pieces.

The Herve Leger by Max Azria spring 2016 collection is the next hinter that massive hair and smoky eyes have already sputtered out giving way to natural pale makeup looks and somewhat childish braids that are likely to embrace our warm and sunny spring days.
