Les Chiffoniers Autumn/Winter 2013 Collection

Today I dream about the edgy A/W 2013 collection by the cult London label, Les Chiffoniers.

The brand was founded by Leena Similu who has worked at Stella McCartney and Jill Sander. Leena took the fashion world by storm by re-inventing and revamping leggings, designing pieces in PVC and sequins.

The brand is adored by some of the world's most famous super models like Kate Moss, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley or Anja Rubik who wore Les Chiffoniers' trousers in one of the episodes of the Polish edition of Project Runway.

The new collection is innovative, raw and full of unexpected details. I love the combination of different textures and fabrics. Leena is using difficult fabrics like leather, heavy silk and organza. It's quite hard to make them look flattering and feminine but Leena cleverly managed to do so by folding the leather into pleats to make it look feminine or by adding the texture of a knitted jumper to a leather sweatshirt.

What do you think?
