Hervé Léger's New Take on Bandage Dresses

Hervé Léger's New Take on Bandage Dresses


Lots of trends are seen on the runway every season, many of them duplicated in multiple shows, but today I saw a new one at Hervé Léger.

According to Max Azria, who has helmed the brand for more than a decade, this collection was inspired by Marie Antoinette and used delicately woven bandages to symbolize the lace and corsets of the 18th century. These dresses were skintight and definitely had a modern — and even slightly futuristic — spin on a classic style. Each dress had intricately woven sections and cut-outs to show just the right amount of skin.

I loved the look of them, but they actually seemed a bit uncomfortable. They appeared stiff and likely would be difficult to sit in … but fashion does not always equal comfort.

Tell Marie Claire: Do you think style is more important than comfort and ease? Would you rock one of these dresses?
