Gone for a Ride – Herve Leger by Max Azria’s fall 2012 collection was equestrian inspired with a hint of motorcycle culture thrown in for good measure. Beginning with a strong black, models hit the runway in body conscious ensembles cinched at the waist. Keeping with the equestrian theme, Leger’s signature bandage dresses were accented by leather harnesses, fringe and gladiator style boots. The hard look was softened with graphic prints, peekaboo cutouts and fur-adorned cropped jackets. Certainly not for the faint of heart, the fall collection is made for a woman who dares to walk on the rebellious side.
