collection images: hervé léger, pre-fall
by Jeremy Danté
hervé léger presents another promising set of design, this time for the pre-fall 2011 season. made widely popular by a mob of female celebrities & hollywood socialites, the hervé léger label sits atop the third & highest tear of the BCBGMAXAZRIA group. no doubt the labels most trendy & high fashion relative collection, i have been consistently impressed by the designs that have been presented for the last two seasons. while looking at this pre-season set, we see the label play with the idea of print. while still the pre-season, im excusing the lack of renewed design sensibility on the fact that the collections full force collection has yet to be presented. designs we’ve seen on the bodies of kim kardashian & rihanna seem to reintroduce themselves within this set. whether this was intentional or if the label has lost creative steam is yet to be determined. i have doubted the design capabilities of this label before & had pleasantly been wrong. i’ve seen the abilities of the bandage design transformed into immensely creative pieces & think that so much more can be given than what is seen here. while the bandage dress is the core element of the collections, im hoping to see this label raise the bar for themselves in the coming fall season.
