Neutral tones of tan, black, creme, and navy graced the runway for Herve Leger’s SS 2013 collection. Geometric designs, inspired by the quilts of Gee’s Bend, a community in Alabama whose women have developed a unique style of traditional patch working, kept the audience’s eye busy for what seems to be Herve Leger’s most intricate show to date in terms of print usage. The hair was kept simple, slicked down, and worn off to one side. Accessories were also rather simple. Classic clutches and bold, chunky shoes to the ankle were the only accessories needed here. A nude face also helped to keep the look as pared down as possible. With such bold prints, one does not need a bold face or accessories to go with it. In this case it’s best to let the outfit speak for itself to avoid an overdone, overcomplicated look.

His classic bandage dress was this time accented by leather corset-like or halter styled harnesses on the bodice and waist. Keep a look out for such harnesses as these have become a big trend for Spring. Seen briefly last year at McQueen and now this year, this trend might carry over into Fall and next Spring as well. Flared bottom skirts were a nice addition to the tightly fitted dress that everyone knows so well. One of the highlights was a zig-zag design that featured an abstract floral print in a combination of yellows, pinks, and blues. A gradient print in gray and white appeared in both bathing suits and dresses and looked to be almost woven. A nice glint of shine on a neutral background could be seen from chains that were woven into several garments. Although there were a couple gems in this collection, the collection was a bit over the top. Bold patterns on such a bold style as a bandage dress tends to look almost costumey, thus losing the sex appeal.
