For Fall 2015, Herve Leger by Max Azria draws its inspiration from the magnificent basilica de la sagrada famlia by Antoni Gaudi. One of the most outstanding figures of the Catalan culture, Gaudi developed a highly expressive language of his own and a body work that speaks directly to the senses. The collection journeys through the symbolism captured in three of the Basilica's facades and its outstanding stained glass windows: nativity, passion and glory, which signify the concepts of birth, sacrifice and toil in human nature.
The royal heron is the true star of this collection. A symbol of grace, this bird was a common decorative element in Manila shawls, adapting to the iconography liked by the women of the period. Embroidered with care with a historic beauty where craftsmanship and luxury were latent.
