I attended Leonard’s spring/summer 2014 fashion show in Paris in September 2013 at the Palais de Tokyo. I like the Mediterranean fashion style of the Parisian label very much. It reminds me of Capri, St-Tropez and Taormina. French designer Maxime SimoÃ«ns, a former creative director of the brand, watched the runway show in the first row.
The Eighties motifs, with their explosive cocktail of sophisticated sensuality and raw hedonism, perfectly match a dynamic woman who fully embraces her romantic style.
Resolutely urban, the Leonard woman celebrated her freedom of movement in an asymmetrical skirt matched to a royal blue nappa leather and printed silk jacket. Abstract polychrome flowers were offset by ripples of white paint, reminiscent of edgy graffiti. The theme was punctuated with zippers, a bold pictural gesture which blended into watercolour-like shadings on an almost liquid silk charmeuse dress where turquoise and Tyrian pink gradually fade to white.
An Art Nouveau style print inspired by Tiffany glass accentuated the modernity of a deconstructed necklace dress and a jumpsuit with a daring neckline. Bright pink and flesh pink peonies radiated in full fatal splendour on a draped skin-tight bustier dress.
