Chicago native and one of Hollywood’s top stylists and image architect, Law Roach, is adding another illustrious gig to his already packed resume and schedule. It was recently announced via a WWD exclusive story that Authentic Brands Group’s Hervé Léger, the fashion brand famous for its bandage dress in the aughts, will collaborate with Roach on a 25-piece limited-edition, resort season collection priced between $690 to $2,900 and available starting in October. Hervé Léger creative director Christian Juul Nielsen along with Roach tapped into Hervé Léger’s extensive storied archive.
“I first dove into the Hervé archive in 2017, when I was doing ‘America’s Next Top Model’ with Tyra Banks. She was an Hervé girl and walked their runway in the ‘90s and that image is so iconic to me. So, when Christian and the Hervé team approached me with the opportunity, it was a no-brainer,” Roach told WWD. “This has been a very hands-on experience and I have been involved in every part of the process. We started by analyzing Hervé’s massive archive and pulled out elements that I liked and didn’t like. From there, I was able to see my vision and Christian helped make that vision come to life.”
The ready-to-wear 25 piece collection is presented in a palette of lilac shades and neutral tones, with variations on the brand’s signature bandage dresses, mix and match separates, and elevated crop tops, on everyday styles that celebrate the female form, “on or off the red carpet.”
“I’ve long been impressed by how Law Roach builds such strong looks for women. I love how he empowers through fashion on the red carpet. He celebrates curves and the female body, and I knew that would translate strongly in a collection for Hervé Léger,” Juul Nielsen said in a statement.
Stylist and Image Architect Law Roach is currently starring on HBO Max’s Legendary and recently had a high fashion run with model Bella Hadid during Cannes which one of the looks caused some unnecessary internet drama. He was announced in April as British Vogue’s Contributing West Coast Editor. Roach’s acclaims also includes being named The Hollywood Reporter’s Stylist of the Year (for the second year running). Roach’s celebrity clients include Zendaya, Lewis Hamilton, Kerry Washington, Venus Williams, Bella Hadid, Tom Holland, Halsey, Hunter Schafer to name a few.
