Leonard has made its name with bold prints since its birth in 1958. For the spring/summer 2020 collection, designer Christine Phung injects the label with high-tech, sporty twists for today’s active lifestyles, along with new prints inspired by the psychedelic 1970s.
Drawing on the facets of a disco ball, neon pink, sparkling yellow and acidic mint are interpreted through prints such as pointillist, pulsing, colorized sound waves and pixels, which are sure to illuminate the darkness of a 1970s nightclub.
Leading the house’s signature prints of exotic flora are orchids, arum lilies and birds of paradise, adding to the sensual appeal of silhouettes that blend body-con and draping.
A hot item is a halter dress using different prints in the top and a hemline to create a two-piece effect. A cutout design in the front amps up the sexiness.
The collection features body conscious silhouettes: leggings, cycling shorts, bodysuits and jumpsuits, all of which would not look out of the place in a gym class.
Knotted shirts, draped dresses, light blouses and silky skirts will come over jumpsuits and leggings for the rest of the day, which are the finishing touches to the looks of an active, free, sensual and creative woman.
For example, the Fevre oversized shirt and Mustaf elasticized-waist leggings make for a comfy pairing that is elevated into elegance with the sash-like silver Noah belt.
