Behind the Seams: Hervé Léger Spring/Summer ’14

Hervé Léger by Max Azria focuses on the house’s signature couture techniques for spring 2014. The result: a seductive tale starring the urban, power-dressing femme fatale.

Timing is everything! Models rehearse their walk to the show’s arranged playlist.

Lubov Azria and team give their final seal of approval.

Beauty is expressed in the handcrafted details.

 It’s all about the zipper embellishments.

Crochet and beadwork define the form.

Corset seduction meets fringe benefits.

Mark your calendars: the Parisian brand acquired by Max Azria in 1985 turns 30 in 2015. And we’re told it’s going to be an anniversary year to remember!
