Leaf Xia Spring 2018: London Fashion Week

Leaf Xia London Fashion Week SS18

Leaf Xia’s SS18 London Fashion Week collection was a rainbow of panelled coats laced with ribbons and frills. The collection focussed on bold colours sculpted around the female form. Billowing silk dresses added volume to the collection of rigid outerwear.

It took inspiration from artist Leonard Knight, who painted California’s Salvation Mountain, which took 24 years to complete. Xia draws parallels from the fast-paced fashion industry and the environment. Xia’s consideration to detail and colour combinations reflects the beauty shown in the world around us, whilst not taking the pressures of the brutal fashion industry too seriously.

Red tartan and corseted ribbon detailing added a punk-inspired edge to the collection of baby doll dresses and frill binding, with Xia’s customary Alice in Wonderland appeal.

As usual, it was Xia’s remarkable and playful sense of colour that stood out. Leaf Xia’s SS18 collection was short and sweet: an explosion of colour crafted into tailored A-line jackets and plumes of delicate silk.
