Hervé Léger's SS16 collection sees the classic bandage dress taken to greater heights in impeccable textures and embellishments

Hervé Léger won't be Hervé Léger without the iconic sultry, bodyhugging silhouette on the runway. This season saw the bandage technique giving way to textured jacquardshandwoven macramé knotting, alongside floral appliqués and embellishments.

Aside from the usual bodycons, flared hemlines seemingly dominated the repertoire, from bell sleeves to fringes to the classic pleats, they all came together with the textured and embellished garments seamlessly. 

Perhaps the biggest breakaway made from the brand thus far is the introduction of trousers in the collection; bell bottom pants and flared jumpsuits made the induction a flatteringly chic one.
