Leonard Spring Summer 2019
This Leonard collection imagined by Christine Phung draws inspiration
from the landscapes of Kenya and Tanzania.
The Masai Mara is one of the most remarkable sceneries in the world,
with colors burnt by the sun: the shades are more intense, powerful
From the vision, a wardrobe composed of clay leather and Klein blue
arises – one marked by twisted Sahariennes jumpsuits, heat-welded
cotton gabardine trousers, adornments in silk cords and embroided
The prints are hand-painted and the vibrant colors are reminiscent of
the Masai Mara landscapes.
The silhouettes are adorned with large, tender punk moiré flowers, the
house’s historical signature.
The entire collection is built around the architectural spirit of
trench coats and shirts, and progressively evolves into asymmetrical
draped dresses and traditional knotting.
This new wardrobe captures backdrop and envelops itself in it. The
aesthetic chock becomes an identity one.
To celebrate its 60th anniversary, Leonard closes the show with seven
heritage silhouettes inspired by the house’s most precious archives.
