Fall 2014 saw Max and Lubov Azria getting into some Fetishistic Fashion with Bondage and Zippers and Buckles and Corsets, OH MY! The other distinct impression was that they were also invoking L'Esprit De Gianni Versace Circa 1992 Fall with his Famous "Bondage" Cowboys and Indians Collection that is so (In)Famous! But Versace-isms seemed to abound in this collection, Gianni AND Donatella. It did a world of good for the House which has suffered some Massive Indignities under the helm of the Azria's!
Sublimated Sexy was the Theme Du Jour. Sasha Luss with here Slick Show Ponytail slinked the catwalk to open in a Dress with a Cage effect and Trompe L'Oeil Corset jutting off the sides that was Strong and Sexy while being quite Modest. Attached Cutout Corsets and Caging effects dominated the opening exits and so did Major Fur, Especially the Hybrid Fur and Leather Cape/Coat on Arlenis Sosa at Exit No. 10!
Channeling The Herve Leger of old was a dress the colour Chocolate Mousse on Jasmine Tookes at Exit No. 13 that was Scintillating! So was a Fiery Tomato Red Number At Exit No. 21! The Final Trio of dresses seemed to be aping Donatella Versace's signature Spliced dresses of Patched together Sheer and Solid and Beading but done in an altogether Leger way and worked Beautifully and Sexily! The Final dress, again on Sasha Luss, was Particularly Special!
This was a Smashing turn of events for the Leger House and perhaps Max and Lubov have gotten the train back on the tracks and hopefully this will set them on the path of continued success in this manner!
