Interview - Leon Louis
Leon Louis's essence his defined by his ability to embrace an ageless aesthetic through a contemporary sense of the design. The Autumn/Winter 2014 collection gathers a precise craftsmanship along experimentations where the designer explores a connection between wearer and garment.
"How can you express the soul of your garments ?"
"The soul is found in each garment by the wearer who will have the pleasure, of through time and usage, bringing the garment to life. Each garment will age differently and thereby have a different individual expression"
"What makes you believe in Fashion ?”
"Personally, I believe in fashion when it reaches the level where the creations are more than just garments to people. For me it is the second layer of skin and you should take care of your skin as well as you take care of yourself. My creations are meant to last for at least a decade. For me, this is the level we need to embrace, instead of the consumerism community which our world is slowly turning towards"
