Hervé Léger has been synonymous with glamour and sensuality since its inception in 1985. For Spring 14’ the overriding theme of the collection was this historic sense of ‘woman’ fused with a sultry female empowerment that was boosted by decorative touches in the form of zips, frills, black leather corset belts, beading and fierce crochet.

As Hervé Léger is known for nailing the ultimate body-con design, it’s no surprise that this style was repeated in the designers’ latest collection, but this time with a few upgrades. Opening looks were alive with fuller, kick-style skirts that conveyed a lady-like edge to the strong shaped styles. Zips were used to control the silhouette of the dress, (zip down for a fitted skirt, zip up for flare) in which the conceal-and-reveal apertures were formed within the dress itself.

Corset belts were a key feature, nipping in waists and creating different dimensions and an almost amour-like vibe. Cutouts crept in around the shoulders, sides and chest positioned against highly patterned and embellished designs. Blacks, whites and grays were the dominant hues, while blues crept in during the latter half of the show. It was of course accomplished and oozing style - modern glamour, fused with an unconventional edgy essence for SS14.
