Fashion is to me an artistic expression of defining who you are. Through clothing you’ll get to know a bit of people just by looking at their first sight.
Whenever I see the work from LEREN CONNOR I see refined modern art. The fashion and jewellery designer based in Derby England has an eye for details. She has truly magic hands.
Her focus on every clothing piece can be seen on the fabric and shape. The thoughts behind her collections is that no fabric is a waste. She believes in recycling, charity shops and second hand clothing pieces which makes her collections more and more beautiful.
Collection Spring/Summer 2015.
I’m gladly to introduce to you LEREN CONNOR Spring/Summer 2015 collection Colour Pop.
This collection truly pops! I really like the combination of simple with edgy details. The colours gives a spring/summer vibe and the details are perfectly chosen.
S/S15 – Colour Pop
“He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.” ~Sonia Delaunay
”For S/S15 we bring you the colours of spring and summer, the vibes of the festival season, those relaxing summer nights, day trips out with the girls and the atmosphere of the heat and that inner rainbow we all have inside us. We all rejoice in the sun and bask in the fresh smell of blooming flowers and the cool breezes that pass through the freshly cut grass and moves through the trees. They’re the seasons of adventure and spontaneity, the months of relaxation, but also a time to get your best summer attire out the wardrobe and show the world your vibrant self.”
”S/S15 for us was all about mixing colour and print together, the atmosphere of summer and the calm of spring inspired me, inspiration from warm memories and the blissful moods of spring and summer, everything is always brighter and colour flows frequently in every direction. I began with pantones and began to bring in neutrals that contrasted well when the prints were brought into play, making sure the collection was versatile and capsule collection was key, it needed to target a wider audience.”
”I wanted to create simple yet eclectic garments that you can wear either in the day and then mix it up in the evening, the collection ranges from festival wear, casual wear and evening wear. Fabrics through out the collection are a combination of recycled material and also fabric from our suppliers, I also had the pleasure of making our own fabric for this collection, in two of the jackets we see our free fabric which are made up from all the scraps of fabric used through out the collection. Three of the dresses are made from free lace with each piece having their own colour way. Recycling is and will always be a huge part of what we do here at Leren Connor and what a better way to show it off through our S/S15 capsule collection.”
The more I look at the collections the more I like it. Leren Connor has a distinct style that she express in a beautiful way. Her work is thoughtful also towards her customers. Every original piece is handmade, if you see a piece that you truly love you can contact her to pass your clothing size. This shows to me adhesion to her customers and devotion to her collections!
