Francis Leon Spring/Summer 2013 Lookbook
Lately I cannot get enough of Aussie designers, everything they produce just seems to ooze this laid back, effortless kind of charm & elegance, clothes that although intricately detailed & in super fine fabrics feel as though you can just throw them on.
Francis Leon is the latest Aussie designer crush to add to that list. The label produces the kind of clothes I image superheroines wear on their days off, a mixture of futuristic, graphic paneling, tight silhouettes & functional sportwear detailing, it’s laid back luxe at it’s best.
The SS13 lookbook has me hooked even further, it has this infectious sci-fi rock’n'roll kind of attitude about it, it makes me want to be that girl & want to own every piece, especially the jackets. My favourite is without a doubt the first jacket, it’s the perfect biker & the little flash of oxblood on the inner arms make it really special. It’s these little details that really make the collection stand out, the small ribbed inserts, the masterful mixing of textures & fabrics, subtle paneling & the beautiful fitted cuts, they’re the type of pieces that you’ll always find something new to love & wear to death because they make you feel so kick-ass.
