Leonard St. is well known for unique, original prints and beautifully eclectic collections, and AW12 does not disappoint. Incorporating a bold colour palette of cadmium, teal, orange, duck-egg blue and emerald green to contrast the more traditional, subdued winter colours, it is a collection that can easily flow from one season to the next.
Designer, Amanda McCarthy has created a collection with clean lines and plenty of opportunity to embrace winter layering, with cropped jackets and three-quarter length skirts, alongside tonal, oversized knits. High waisted and wide leg pants, Chanel-esque boucle jackets and angled hems create a richly textured winter look. Checks are a highlight in classic Hounds tooth or bright colour options tailored to perfection with wide leg trousers and fitted jackets.
A particularly special part of the collection is a collaboration with graphic designer Melissa De Pasquale resulting in an elaborate digital Forest print depicting endangered Australian flora and fauna. Dark and intriguing in a classic, illustrative storybook style, it is a truly unique and dynamic print. This is the feature print of the season. “it was months of work, we researched endangered Australian flora and fauna, and worked to develop a print that represented these species balanced with European animals to lend the classic folklore feel. Im very happy with the results”
