Florentina Leitner Presents Fall/Winter 2024 Collection at Paris Fashion Week

On February 27, 2024, Florentina Leitner, the Austrian fashion designer based in Antwerp, presented her Fall/Winter 2024 collection, “L’Autrichienne,” at Paris Fashion Week. Inspired by one of the most iconic Austrian women in history, Marie Antoinette, the showcase featured a fusion of femininity and elegance. 

The collection encased the spirit of a modern Marie Antoinette, a chic and confident woman who adores dogs, bows, and a touch of glitter, drawing inspiration from Sofia Coppola’s iconic movie. This unique blend of historical influence and modern flair creates a fashion narrative that is both timeless and avant-garde.

Creating a harmonious and enchanting ensemble for the upcoming Fall/Winter season, Leitner’s signature aesthetic delicately threads through each design. This thoughtful blend of historical inspiration and the designer’s distinctive touch promises a collection that is both captivating and elegantly sophisticated. 

With lavish textiles, the collection introduced a marriage of ornate details and modern elements. Screen printed Poodle T-shirts and biker jackets mixed with rich velvet fabrics intertwine with faux fur accents, while elegant silhouettes clash with bold statement pieces, creating a harmonious blend of historical richness and contemporary edge.

Reminiscent of the ornate fashion of the 18th century, the collection featured puffy flowers and sleeves met with contemporary tailoring and playful prints. For shoes, Leitner collaborated with sneaker brand “ATCROX” on feminine pearl beaded velvet sneakers and silver glittery footwear, echoing Marie Antoinette’s court.
