Inspired by contemporary art in an urban setting, the Resort 2012 Collection of HervÃ© LÃ©ger by Max Azria defines modern couture with unique exclusivity.Â Lubov Azria and the design team share the inspiration behind the making of the collection in this exclusive interview:
Q: What is the inspiration behind the resort 2012 collection?
A: For this collection, we were inspired by the “Art in the Streets” exhibit at the MOCA and the work of Keith Haring and Stephen Sprouse, among a few others, that has such a unique, modern approach.
Q: What fabrics were used and why?
A: Once again, we were able to reinvent the signature bandage to create truly powerful garments. We used bright colored graffiti jacquards and new hand-weaving techniques to create an artistic and original look.
Q: Are there any special details that are an important part of the collection?
A: Color and print blocking, contrast color binding and athletic silhouettes can be seen throughout the collection.
Q: Tell us about the color palette.
A:Â We used a lot of bold brights such as fuchsia and cobalt blue and then grounded the palette with black and off-white.
Q: How do the accessories tie into the collection?
A: The same elements used in the garments are carried through into the accessoriesâ€”bold color, color blocking and standout resin beads that solidify the artistic and commanding statement of the collection.
I love the modern contemporary feel to the collection, it’s very artistic and of course the bold brights, I can never go past fuchsia.
