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.
