Milan Fashion Week: Leo Studio Design

You're never too old to dress the way you want!

This season at MFW, I was introduced to Leo Studio Design- a fun, playful collection of ready to wear Italian shoes, bags, and flirty separates. While taking in this new aesthetic, I also discovered that during fashion week, not all designers choose to display their apparel lines the same. Not every event is a runway show. Some designers showcase their collections in unique presentations, and I was pleasantly surprised with this one.


With a colorful & fun print play of comic motifs and metallic accents, this line made me feel like the juvenile styles that I loved from my childhood were still okay to wear! Cartoon prints and gold-guilded sneakers lined the room while bananas & burlap decorated the minimalistic scene. The trending #LEOBANANAS from the invitation finally made sense when I saw the fruit theme played throughout the colorful Spring/Summer collection. 

Leo Studio Design certainly has a flare for the unique, and I can always get behind a fun collection like this when styled for everyday wear. The set here was certainly plain, but I think that was best for such a bold line that might have competed with a more ornate set. 

I'm also obsessed with the fun inspiration for this collection (shared on Leo Studio Design Instagram)


Designer Lee Wood decided to present his Spring/Summer collection a bit differently this season. Instead of a full runway show, viewers were treated to an up-close-and-personal look at key pieces from the L72 line. With style influencers, photographers, and editors surrounding them, models walked through the crowds in an Italian hotel lobby to allow each of us to touch, snap, and appreciate each detail.
