Interesting and Hypnotizing full length maxi by Leonard.
This spot on dress blends aspects of tribal art with autumnal colors on a black ground. It boasts a 70's style attached necktie and bishop sleeves that were popular for that era. Buttons are fabric covered and create a front closure. This dress is full length and the print is too entrancing to ignore as it zig-zags throughout the entirety of the garment.
It would be interesting to see how this dress would look styled with geometric or gold brutalist style jewelry.
Leonard was first a textile company then in 1954 Daniel Tribouillard joined the house and in 1958 began making garments. The prints are designer bright florals on silk jersey knit fabric. The house is still alive today and creates lines similar to those from the past preserving a unique style.
