When thinking about glamorous luxury US brands, one of the designer names most likely to come to mind is Herve Leger. Since its inception in the 1980s, the brand has been associated with opulence, elegance and haute couture fashion, and to this day, it remains one of the most desirable labels in the world. Their signature ‘Bandage’ dress is still considered a fashion classic.

From Herve to Max Azria

Herve Leger was founded in 1985, by the French designer Herve Peugnet, who was advised by his friend Karl Lagerfeld to change his name, in case it proved too tricky for Americans to pronounce! However, 13 years later, the brand was acquired by the Max Azria Group, the first time in history that a French fashion house had been purchased by a US designer. The combination of French sensuality and American glamor took the brand to new levels, with a fiercer, sleeker look.

The Bandage Dress

The Bandage dress remains the most iconic piece to emerge from the Herve Leger label. Commonly associated with ‘body-con’ fashion, the bandage dress creates the illusion of bandages wrapped tightly around the female form, creating a silhouette that is curvy, streamlined and highly alluring. Unsurprisingly, the world went wild for the new dress, and to this day, it still remains a favorite of A-list celebrities across the world.

Luxury US Brand

Herve Leger’s range of dresses, skirts, tops and jackets are all designed with the female body in mind, with figure-hugging fabrics, strong, sculpted shapes, and bold but simple colours. However, the fashion house is still most renowned for their dresses, which have been spotted on celebrities such as Beyonce, Misty Copeland, Rita Ora and Sharon Stone.
