During Paris Fashion Week, Florentina Leitner, the Austrian, Antwerp-based fashion designer, unveiled her Spring/Summer 2024 collection “Picnic at Hanging Rock” on September 26, 2023. Inviting you to daydream about Bunnies, Picnics and Cute girls with Braided hair hanging on a Cliff, the collection is full of femininity and elegance, a modern-victorian summer Picnic which invites you to daydream about Bunnies, Picnics and Cute girls with Braided hair hanging on a Cliff.
Florentina was inspired by the details from the garments of the 1975 movie “Picnic at Hanging Rock” and the eerie atmosphere of the disappearing school girls on a summer day. The collection includes delicate lace fabrics mixed with “rocky” and edgy vegan leather pieces, clashing with bright red tones and soft pastels. Combined with the strong focus on print and textiles, Leitner’s signature aesthetic is translated once more into harmonious, enchanting designs for the Spring/Summer season.
The SS24 Collection features puffy sleeves and puffy dresses met with classic tailoring details, playful prints and floral embroidery motives. This season Florentina Leitner worked together on a jewellery collaboration with Paris-based Jewellery Designer Helena Thulin, which specialises in crystals and beads in her own work. For the Collab they worked on bejewelled cherry earrings, necklaces and garment details which give the collection an extra bling.
This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the Original Timberland® Premium 6-Inch Boot and Florentina Leitner is celebrating the Icon’s anniversary with an eyelet and leather flower detailed customization, on selected Timberland footwear styles. Floral laser cut details with eyelets attached and glass bead details (by Helena Thulin) are applied on those “show pieces”.
Timberlands are the perfect shoes for a “Picnic at Hanging Rock” adventure. Girls walking through stoney cliffs on a summer day in floral shoes, is this season’s motto. Enter the world of Florentina Leitner’s “Picnic at Hanging Rock”, surrounded by a dreamy and slightly dark aesthetic with the typical brands twist.
