What We Thought:
Our thoughts as we saw the first model come down the runway, debuting the black baseball cap that we’d see on almost all of the girls the rest of the show: pretty badass. We instantly dubbed it “baseball cap chic” as the collection proved to be – a combination of effortless cool thanks to the hats and furry hoods paired with the signature bandage dresses Hervé Léger has always been known for. If nature was the main source of inspiration, we could definitely tell through the color palette of Fall 2013 – kept to neutral grays, black, white, and the occasional forest green and warm, deep topaz.
We can see this take on “urbanizing nature” – from the structured clutches to stud detailing of the Fall 2013 collection – doing quite well in retail.
