LA­BEL LOVER BRAND Ori­gin Paris

Designer’s Back­ground Chi­nese-born, Paris-based designer Yiqing Yin joined Leonard as its de­sign direc­tor in 2014; the spring/sum­mer 2015 col­lec­tion marks her sopho­more ef­fort. Hol­ly­wood starlets from El­iz­a­beth Banks to Bey­oncé have been seen sport­ing looks by Leonard in re­cent years.

De­sign Signatures Leonard first made its name in the 1950s, when it be­came syn­ony­mous with flo­ral mo­tifs em­bla­zoned on silk jer­sey dresses, which at the time was a rev­o­lu­tion­ary new process in print­ing.

Lat­est Colection Yin looks back to the house’s ar­chives for prints, but also in­jects a youth­ful en­ergy with flo­ral-printed boyfriend jeans, bikini tops un­der flow­ing silk shirts, as well as the use of mul­ti­coloured Lurex jac­quard. The jac­quard fab­ric used in the lat­est col­lec­tion was de­signed to re­sem­ble Rain­bow Moun­tain, the new Unesco World Her­itage site in Danxia, Main­land China that’s densely packed with var­i­ous min­er­als and sand­stones that give off bright, elec­tric rain­bow hues
