Miu Miu SS2017 Collection

Miu Miu SS2017 collection presents a light, fresh and very feminine collection that conveys the summer, the sea and the beach with Miu Miu’s typical wit.


Inspired by the Italian summers of the 50s to the 70s, the collection offers smocked cotton mini dresses and bikinis, tricotine skirts, jackets and coats that open to unveil shorts or swimwear.


The clothes are made of printed poplin and sablé, and cloqué fabric with faint nuances. The show was full of surprises: beach towels became skirts and stoles, inlay fur and bathrobes transformed into coats where three-dimensional embroidery embellished the oilskin jackets and overcoats.


The glamorous nature of the collection is completed and accentuated by multicoloured swimming caps – with flower and embroidery appliqués, worn as hats for both day and night looks.


In terms of shoes, the typical beach slides were there in force – made of plastic or patent leather with flower and flake appliqués but there were also two-tone clogs with simple lines, rubber or transparent Plexiglas wedges and high-heeled sandals with decorative appliqué.


The two-tone ballet flats with contrasting white rubber soles were not to be missed. In terms of bags, clutches are essential – made of the iconic nappa leather with matelassé motif, Plexiglas material or printed canvas with crystal appliqué as are the totes, which come in various printed fabrics, matelassé and leather.


 As always, the show was set in the Salle Hypostyle in the Palais d’Iena – an emblematic Parisian building, designed by great architect Auguste Perret and reinvented by Rem Koolhaas’ AMO to create an artificial summer landscape.


An interweaving pattern made of matte and shiny PVC motifs covered the floor and catwalk, in places continuing up to the tribunes and walls. A series of graphic illustrations recreated naive and colourful landscapes, reminiscent of summer settings.

LEONARD SS2017 Digital Tropic Collection

LEONARD SS2017 collection presents the truly fearless women: the proof, if need be, is that she will spend her time crossing the jungle in the middle of the darkest of nights. Nevertheless, with no other company but the starry sky and the tropical plants, she starts to have hallucinations – not to her dislike.


Around her, the luxuriant wilderness has begun to morph into a style lab. The gum trees have poured out their oily sap, on slippery, shiny and textured fabrics. Their trunks take on the appearance of hammered silk crepe.


The palms are suddenly choppy, remixed and vibrate on holographic textiles. She enjoys this chimerical vision: chlorophyll green quenches her thirst, the pink of the hibiscus flower illuminates her path, she even befriends a fragile yet decidedly wild orchid.


On the eve on its 60th anniversary, Leonard Paris imagines a modern jungle – real or symbolic, urban or leafy, 3.0 or tangible.


This collection ‘Digital Tropics’ rethinks flowers, part of the house’s DNA, in a modern manner, redefining them with a new sense of contemporaneity.


The pieces unveil a sense of fluidity, between vaporous and sporty, organic and architectural.


A varsity jacket, embroidered with honeycomb texture, is worn with the ease of housewear; a parka is reworked in holographic organza, dresses are cut out of pleated silk and contrasted by ribbed edges, bringing a sense of comfort to luxury. 


The Leonard woman is strengthened by her sensitivity. And she doesn’t have a minute to lose: Adventure awaits her.
