Hervé Léger revealed the stronger side of a woman at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York. A warrior-esque feel permeated the runway with thick, corset-like belts; tribal prints and leather harness detailing. Gladiator boots sealed the deal for a look that was more warrior princess than Hunger Games. The color pallette remained simple with ebony, steely grays and earthy browns. Geometric detailing brought about reference to Hervé Léger’s signature bandage dressing. Fringe and fur accents kept the line luxurious.
