This Spring 2017 collection marks BCBG's 32nd season of Herve Leger. With so many seasons under their belt, and the fashion world's demand for novelty, how does this season look and how does it differ from previous seasons?
While Herve Leger definitely has some of the most gorgeous wearable garments out there, it's easy to see how challenging designing under this brand could be. There is an expectation of incorporating the bandage look into every season while still remaining somewhat avant-garde.
What makes this brand so famous and so coveted (its body-shaping bandage fabric) also limits the designer in what they can create. Herve Leger's foundation is about bringing out the best of the wearer's curves and shape. In some senses, when there are embellishments and ruffles, the human form has less voice. So, every ruffle and embellishment has to be carefully considered.
What do you think of Spring 2017? My favorite dress is number 19. That pink pleated dress is as fairy-tale-like as it is sexy.
