LEON LOUIS SS16 UNCONTESTED RITUALISM

Leon Louis, A Danish designer that has been on our radar for a long time and consistently creates beautifully formed conceptual collections. 

The SS16 collection excels once again. Insistence. Adherent infantry. The march is on. One without an end point. Persistent individuals have gathered, unified in their morose pathos. Their arboretum long abandoned, a quest is on to redeem their ancestry. Resilient through resistance, clad in monochrome uniforms, they march onto the barren coastline.

Signalling the dynamic of what makes a devotee, LEON LOUIS researches the merits of orderly tailoring. Inspiration is drawn from the diversity found in human anatomy and its historic connection to the external cloth shell, we choose to envelope ourselves in.

Surfaces are rich in texture and tactility, forged here in deep black, light grey and off-white. Garments are crafted with his signature stitching details, displaced cut lines allowing for movement, adjustable lining and string closures, enhancing the silhouettes versatility.

Handcrafted Danish linen and knits are paired with soft tencel, jersey and lightweight poplin. Waxed sturdy horse leather appear alongside texture grey ox outers and subtle calf skins. For heavy duty usage, condemning the elements, the collection incorporates sterling silver buttons, cattle horn, leather pull lampo zips and laser cut corozo shirting closures. LEON LOUIS. A collage of brazen conductors that shape their own lives. Lead but never seize to follow.
