For fall 2015, Hervé Léger by Max Azria showcased a striking collection filled with luxurious couture techniques such as rich, textured jacquards, stud weavings, tridimensional glass beading, metallic hand studding, and leather appliqué that enriched each look's surface.
As for the accessories, the fall collection consisted of architectural clutch bags, structural harnesses and bandaged booties that emphasized the powerful undertones of the collection's looks.
What was the inspiration for your fall/winter 2015 collection?
The inspiration was Basilica De La Sagrada Familia by Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona, which was one of the most incredible places I have ever been to. The collection journeys through the symbolism captured in three of the basilica's facades, which are Nativity, Passion and Glory.
The show first started with Nativity, which symbolizes birth and is all about the tree of life showcasing three-dimensional jacquard looks. Then, the collection transitions to reflect the Passion façade, which is all about sacrifice and the Goth period. Lastly, the collection reflects the Glory façade, which is all about the Art Nouveau, so you will see these three facades transition throughout the collection.
What were your favorite materials and hues used in your fall/winter 2015 collection?
I liked all the texture; I especially loved the jackets worn over dresses.
What are your essential pieces for this current spring season?
I am going for a bohemian look this spring season and wearing long, fluid dresses with flats.
What's next for your brand?
We just celebrated 25 years, so my goal for the brand is to evolve as a lifestyle brand.
