The Leonard woman is jet setting to India this season, viewing air as a form of escapism.

For AW19, presented at Paris Fashion Week, Christine Phung – artistic director at Leonard – created comfortable yet sophisticated and chic outfits. The colours of Jaipur are vibrant, with its tones reminiscent of semi-precious gems – like the one adorning her ring and hand-carved into an orchid, the floral emblem of Leonard Paris, preciously revisited by Guérin Joaillerie.

Mix and match, layers and contrasts abound between styles and materials – printed metallic double weave neoprint and the perennial silk jersey, as well as printed holographic sequins and a surprising chalk stripe formed by the house’s name.

The brand’s iconic floral motifs were reinterpreted this season and joined by a silk flight suit or a faux fur flight jacket in a Calcutta wool jacquard motif, super feminine despite of its oversized male volume.  Even the life jacket gets a makeover in printed velvet, a witty reminder that she keeps her cool, and style, even in the event of an emergency.

This season the Leonard woman is creative, elegant and worldly, adjusting her wardrobe to the the supersonic speed of the world.
