|Belgian designer Florentina Leitner uses film as the medium to showcase her FW 2021-2022 collection. |
The fashion film “The Royal Leitners”, directed by Belgian director Athos Burez, provides a glimpse into the magic of her world, following the Leitner family through their maison. From green tents, to snowy landscapes – the film introduces you to her newspaper reading father and his Wienerdog companions, her eccentric, plant-loving grandmother, and a cadre of other interesting characters.
Key Winter pieces like faux-fur hats, coats and ski masks are central in her FW 2021-2022 collection. Floral prints and bright colors remain important for the brand, layered with printed bodysuits, puffy dresses and wrap skirts to create a dynamic and arresting aesthetic that is inspired by her Austrian family and childhood. Florentina Leitner created a collection dear to the designer’s memories of innocent times.
“The Royal Leitners” also pays homage to Wes Anderson’s movie “The Royal Tenenbaums”. Film and fashion always walks hand-in-hand in Florentina Leitner’s creations.
