For her second collection Yiqing Yin transforms the Léonard woman by playing with a mix of strength and soft glamour. Printed silk mixed with lace featured on combinations of trousers, shirts and shorts. Organza floated over jackets and loose skirts, and the dresses were draped and knotted transforming them. Exploded flowers, discarded sketches, and rainbow landforms were just some of the myriad themes behind Yiqing Yin’s sophomore turn as design director for Leonard Paris
The bikini-style top with a roomy sarong pant in silk gazar could be described as playful. Yin could tighten her direction a little (constraints aren’t always prohibitive), but otherwise, let the fun continue. So Léonard, so chic.
