Note: these are obvi notÂ HervÃ© LÃ©ger execs, as they aren’t white, male or hateful.
HervÃ© LÃ©gerâ€™s bandage dresses are a mainstay on major red carpets and in da club, but one of the brandâ€™s designers- Patrick Couderc– revealed last week that he doesnâ€™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 â€œvoluptuousâ€ women or women with â€œvery prominent hips and a very flat chestâ€ should not wear his dresses. Also on his â€œnoâ€ list? â€œIf youâ€™re a committed lesbian and you are wearing trousers all your life, you wonâ€™t want to buy a Leger dress. Lesbians would want to be rather butch and leisurely.â€
And Couderc throws ageism into the mix as well. â€œWhat youâ€™re not noticing is that your cleavage is about two inches too low because you are 55 and itâ€™s time that you should not display everything like youâ€™re 23,â€ he said.
He even is resistant of celebs who â€œlack sufficient classâ€ 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:
â€œThe Herve Leger by Max Azria brand and its parent company, BCBGMAXAZRIA Group, are shocked and appalled by Patrick Coudercâ€™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.â€
Justice served. Now back to those bandage dresses and bottle service, YO.
