Viscose, rayon, lycra and spandex pleated skirt, fully lined, back zip and hook closure
The Hervé Leroux Fall/Winter 2013-2014 ready-to-wear collection is about sober, soaring elegance, reflected on 50 hand-made pieces. For Monsieur Hervé, it is crucial that each piece be as specific and precise as a painting by Pierre Soulages, an important influence on the designer. The cut is soft, sensually embracing the female curves, revealing the secrets of the master for both of his obsessions.
The fabric is draped only to create luxurious body landscapes on his monochrome canvases, paying homage to the morphology of the body.
The color palette draws on cobalt, moss green, rubis, pumpkin, mango contrasting blacks and greys, giving depth and mystery to the overall look. Hervé moves to a different direction and his heroine plays with contrast in her ward- robe creating a collection that can be referred to as a “second skin.” She loves the smooth- ness in texture and hints of sheer elements playing with different lengths, from above the knee to full length. She adores the feeling of silk jersey as it gives her a fluid, easy-to-move silhouette, which slides on the body, becoming at once feminine and powerful. Merino wool jersey flannel dresses become one with her skin while woven gros grain protects her body elegantly.
In the interplay of cut and proportion are new silhouettes that strike the balance of allure and control. There is exactitude with severity in the approach to construction.
