Set sail, with passion and carelessness. It is through a film with the air of a road-movie that the Leonard house has chosen to stage its spring-summer 2021 collection, imagined by artistic director Christine Phung. It is at the edge of the ocean, and embodied by two models, Margot and Maren, and professional surfer Nina Reynal, that the latter comes to life. Free, sporty and joyful, the heroines of the film brilliantly embody the modern women of today, traveling in a retro Volkswagen combi, stopping at will to better challenge the ocean and its promises. day, and enjoy the warm summer evenings after dark.
With the Hawaiian shirt and its thousand facets as the common thread of the collection, Leonard Paris has imagined a solar and versatile collection, in which the artisanal know-how and the wealth of innovation of the house are put at the service of beauty. Thus, the house’s iconic orchid merges with palms, hibiscus flowers and the foam of the waves on loose and supple blouses, light silk jersey jumpsuits, airy ponchos and kimonos, a cotton coat. quilted silk seersucker or even long pleated evening dresses in silk crepe. The surfers’ wardrobe is also highlighted through technical details affixed to short dresses or wetsuits in neoprene and mesh, as well as colorful swimsuits or a hoodie sweatshirt printed in the colors of the house.
