Paris, France — The Paris Fashion Week was held in a virtual world once again, this time for the Fall-Winter 2021/2022 collections, but the everlasting creativity and originality that the Paris shows are known for remained. Color, style and spectacular displays and videos were all on the agenda. A standout was the joyful collection from the house of Leonard, one of the great Parisian ready-to-wear houses and one of the most original as well with its signature silk-screened prints.
Entitled Beyond Midnight, the show features the designs of Georg Lux in his first fashion week collection as the creative director of Leonard. Geometric and floral prints were part of the glamorous world of beauty and refinement created by the designer. Art Deco and the 1970s offered up inspiration for designs of movement and elegance. Luxury emerged in silk moiré prints and black jacquard.
The show was also marked by the re-introduction of the Leonard man into the brand that was founded in 1958 when Jacques Leonard asked Daniel Tribouillard to create Leonard Fashion. He would launch a revolutionary new process for printing English weaves which would bring the Leonard brand to the world, notably through its printed silk jersey dresses often featuring floral prints. The orchid is the emblem of the house. The Tribouillard family still owns and manages the house today which has the prestigious Living Heritage Company Label.
