Herve Leger to Show During Paris Fashion Week
Herve Leger has just announced that it will present its new Spring 2019 collection during Paris Fashion Week. The brand, which is now under the creative direction of Christian Juul Nielsen, will show in Polly King & Co’s Paris showroom. “I was inspired by the colors I saw on a recent trip to Cuba and by the vibrancy of Havana’s vintage cars,” Nielsen said of his debut. “This collection reflects that color palette infused with sun-washed shades of coriander, thulian pink, Rio red and Nile blue.”
