is quite the multi-tasker. Not only does the French fashion designer oversee the creative vision of BCBGMaxAzria
, Herve Leger
, plus a slew of other brands under the BCBGMaxAzria Group
umbrella, he also conducts business meetings and
smoke breaks all without ever leaving his desk — evidence of which we witnessed after visiting his Manhattan-based studio earlier this week.
So when we asked Mr. Azria what his spirit animal is, we shouldn't have been too surprised by his answer: A cat... and
a dog! He's both!

Also, just so we're clear, that's not to be confused with a catdog
.(Photo by stoobainbridge.deviantart.com) This is NOT Max Azria's spirit animal.
"My spirit animal would be cat and dog, to be honest with you," he told us. "They are always in my home. They both have a different type of feeling. I like it. They live together properly."
Balance and harmony are certainly important when it comes to juggling many roles, no? And speaking of being kept busy, Azria is also releasing a line of Herve Leger
by Max Azria shoes this fall — which will include the very heels that pranced down the runway at his fall 2013 show yesterday!
"Herve Leger is focused on a very sophisticated product, a sophisticated garment," Azria said. "We focus, of course, on dresses, but we are opening the window for all the products — leggings, shoes, bags, etc. As we know, shoes are a very strong part of your look, so we felt the need to create a shoe that will go with the dresses. These are very sexy shoes.
Um, sexy, indeed. According to WWD
, the shoes will retail between $700 and $1,200 and will be sold online and in Herve Leger stores, high-end retail chains, and specialty boutiques.
