Newly-appointed creative director Christian Juul Nielsen is bringing sexy back to Herve Leger and with perfect timing. Now that the supermodels of today—the likes of Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, and Bella Hadid (who actually has worn a dress by the new designer)—are the perfect muses to dress up. His Pre-Fall 2019 Collection is all about the label’s most iconic contribution to fashion: the bandage dress. Hints of the famous technique appeared almost everywhere: on tight mini-skirts, a hoodie dress, an activewear-style cropped-top, and a barrage of sexy cocktail dresses. But there’s a new technique, seemingly inspired by the bandage dress, that Nielsen introduced this season that’s comparatively more interesting. Whether it’s spliced or pleated, the new drapery he enthused in this collection is a much more refined approach to body-con dressing. There’s a classic twist to it that’s undeniably elegant, yet, it’s also incredibly seductive. If girls today want sexy clothes that won’t make them look like streetwalkers, these frocks are the way to go!
