AUTUMN/WINTER 2014 - ACHROMATIC DOMINANCE - LEON LOUIS

LEON LOUIS explores the merits of conventionalism versus great innovators. His silhouettes alludes to intimidation cloaked garments, wrapping the individualistic bearers, in artisanal fabrics. All pieces have been subjected to artisanal craftsmanship, workmanlike tailoring, which is reflected by the sheer feel of lush simplicity.

Significantly so, the LEON LOUIS traveller values personal expression and the opulent patina of travelling garments throughout our lives. Without compromising on wearability, the brand allows for individual interaction with quality fabrics. Such selected fabrics will be subjected to altered compositions, allowing them to become one with their righteous bearers, illusively through elegant movements and the ever so prone test of immortal times.

LEON LOUIS explores a return to an achromatic essence of precise layering. Expressed through the sculpting of a second layer of skin, seamlessly intertwined with our bodies. Protective, shielding and morphing neatly with each corporal movement. 

The AW14 collection appraises traditional construction techniques, local craftsmanship and immaculate tailoring. The postmodern garments are an exercise of careful dissection and sartorial examination.

Focus is fixed on the structured silhouette, its detachable layers consisting of fitted coats, slouchy sweatshirts, cropped vests, languid shirting and boxy trousers. Each garment combines the need for utility with a yearning for appeasing quality fabrics. Translucent silks, soft Japanese combed jersey, specially water treated lamb leather and Danish merino wools, shape AW14’s backbone.

The collection stands for a return to the essence of dressing, one of lush practicality and sensible composure. Surfaces display minute understated detailing, subtle textures and handcrafted closures.

Straightforward yet profound, LEON LOUIS further investigates the significance of the connection between wearer and garment, beckoning for continuous inwards reflection.
