#NYFW: Hervé Léger Fall 2012

Just when you thought there was nothing left to do to the bandage dress, Max and Lubov Azria find a new way to update the sexy silhouette. Playing with themes of seduction and restraint, the Azrias’ Fall 2012 collection relied on harness details. An equestrian influence prevailed with models channeling both the horse and rider, with a bit of dominatrix in between. This season’s standouts included a black gown that fused a form fitting drop waist bodice with a soft flowy pleated train and a shorter ombre number.
