Note: these are obvi not Hervé Léger execs, as they aren’t white, male or hateful.
Hervé Léger’s bandage dresses are a mainstay on major red carpets and in da club, but one of the brand’s designers- Patrick Couderc– revealed last week that he doesn’t want just anyone wearing them, and thankfully got a lot of heat for his casual comments, inasmuch as he was canned. BYEEEE Patrick.
The exec said in a The Mail on Sunday interview that “voluptuous” women or women with “very prominent hips and a very flat chest” should not wear his dresses. Also on his “no” list? “If you’re a committed lesbian and you are wearing trousers all your life, you won’t want to buy a Leger dress. Lesbians would want to be rather butch and leisurely.”
And Couderc throws ageism into the mix as well. “What you’re not noticing is that your cleavage is about two inches too low because you are 55 and it’s time that you should not display everything like you’re 23,” he said.
He even is resistant of celebs who “lack sufficient class” from being spotted in the brand and refuses to send them any free dresses.
Thankfully, Max Azaria, the parent brand of Herve was equally as embarassed by dumb Patrick McMysogyny, and released a statement saying:
“The Herve Leger by Max Azria brand and its parent company, BCBGMAXAZRIA Group, are shocked and appalled by Patrick Couderc’s comments made in the Mail on Sunday. BCBGMAXAZRIA Group is working in concert with MJH Fashion, the London-based licensee of the Herve Leger brand, to investigate and establish appropriate next steps. The statements made by Mr. Couderc are not a reflection of Herve Leger by Max Azria or MJH Fashion ideals or sentiments. The Herve Leger by Max Azria brand celebrates sensuality, glamour and femininity without discrimination.”
Justice served. Now back to those bandage dresses and bottle service, YO.
