French house Hervé Léger is known for dressing influential women, most notably Songstress & Wet n’ Wild beauty brand Ambassador Fergie.
The house’s iconic signature bandage dress, designed first by founder Hervé Peugnet, is re-imagined seasonally. For Spring 2015, husband & wife duo Max & Lubov Azaria decided to channel a female warrior essence with Ancient Japan’s Onna-bugeisha.
Predating the Samurai class, the Onna-bugeisha roots begin as early as 200 AD, led by Empress Jingu.
In keeping with the Hervé Léger spirit, the collection was equally powerful as it was feminine, making a perfectly seamless transition from Hervé Léger fundamental basics to Onna-bugeisha gold standard. Much like a Japanese oil painting, the collection’s color palette featured a fierce red dragon hue, followed by quintessential nude and monochrome, vivid chartreuse, and pale variations of blue & grey.
