PARIS, March 9, 2010/ FW/ — A riot of different colors, Leonard stayed true to its signature style of presenting new original prints every season. Original and elegant are the two words to describe this French brand.

For Fall 2010, Veronique Leroy who is the Artistic Director of the brand proposes a magnificent ensemble of red shades. Silhouettes are feminine and soft, which by the way is complemented with rounded shoulders.

For practical everyday wear, Leroy suggests chocolate colored knitted tunics with intricately draped collar. For those who like a girly ambiance, the pink evening dress with narrow triangular suede insets will do the job.

And for the ubiquitous little black dress, which every designer this season from New York, to London, to Milan and Paris, strongly recommends to be part of a woman’s wardrobe, Leonard’s version is of a light shirt dress with a gold chain belt and slim trousers with prints that is reminiscent of the tail of a mythical bird.
