LA FONDATION

-AUTUMN 2018-

Live projects with industry undertaken whilst studying at central saint martins with the company, Louis Vuitton.

Voyages are Louis Vuitton’s essential inspiration, which began with their take on a classic trunk or “malle”. Working in line with the idea of travel, sail ships became Léa’s motivation behind her project. Using compressed leather, she designed a structure that mimicked the shapes of the sails. The final result was a decorative sculpture that made use of the leather’s hardness to create a geometric shape, whilst remaining organic and wood-like.
