By now, after what you’ve seen so far in our coverage of New York Fashion Week, you should know how truly in love we are with detailing. And Hervé Léger by Max Azria Fall/Winter 2012 is no exception by any means.
Hervé Léger, the “couture” line by Max and Lubov Azria, managed to transform leather harnesses, python-stamped black leather and fur into something of a beast of a collection but discovered a balance between hard, strong looks and the softer, more feminine looks. Like the medieval horsewoman and soldier battling the kingdom’s enemy to then return to her court as queen. (Pardon the imagination.) But there’s that sort of flip of aggression and femininity within the collection, embracing the beauty and the beast in every woman.
Within the pictures, you’ll see inventive way to combine leather into an wardrobe. Also, the use of harnesses in an outfit has seriously become my most unexpected discovery of this season’s NYFW. (Also see, Norisol Ferrari‘s patent leather bras.)
