Leonard Paris: Founded in 1958 in France. Leonard Paris soon did differentiate the brand in Haute Couture. In 1960, Leonard Paris launched a revolutionary new process for printing English weaves, that were very fashionable at the time but said to be “unprintable”. Today Leonard clothes and accessories are still very recognizable due to the stunning colors and timeless designs.
Leonard is inspired by amazing flowers and amazing colors. The following flowers coming back in several the designs over the last decade: Bacchus print, Bellini print, Beluga print, Baraka print in amazing shades of fuchsia, pink, lavender, lime, aqua blue.
As Daniel Tribouillard, president of Leonard Paris quoted:
Cut out a square of silk, a big square, a metre thirty by a metre thirty. On the silk, place an orchid, pose it. Draw it, paint it, recreate the precise graduation of colours, the blush on the bloom.
There are over thirty shades in your work, requiring over thirty passes through the printing press. You can pose a wave in the same way, or a fish, whatever your dreams of the Far-East inspire. The only condition is that it should be beautiful, that the composition holds. Nothing weak, nothing insipid; you are Leonard.
Except perhaps one thing, beside his lovely daughters, which gives me even greater pleasure: in the course of an evening, on the street, on the beach, to see Leonard silk worn elegantly by an attractive woman, to see the Leonard orchid, fuchsia, lavender, lemon, golds, mauves and greens alive in a subtle harmony of movement. Subtle and light, as life should be. As it is, with Leonard.
