Fashion designer Ronauli Liu has revealed a new festive collection for her eponymous second brand in time for the Christmas season.
Named Leonardo, the collection drew inspiration from the artist Leonardo da Vinci.
Leonardo’s pieces were created by layering intricately detailed fabrics, including tulle, jacquard, French lace and satin. Meanwhile, the color scheme ranges from white, beige and ivory to mint green, ruby red and black to cater to the different themes of Christmas desired by the label’s clientele.
The 18 pieces showcased in the collection consist of dresses suitable for daytime, cocktail dresses for the evening and children’s wear designed with Ronauli’s free-spirited and socially active clients in mind.
The show also featured the Rock ‘N Royals fall-winter 2018-2019 collection from Ronauli’s Xalvar label, inspired by 20th-century rock stars and partygoers. Pieces in this collection are crafted from different combinations of tweed, synthetic leather and denim to express pragmatic elegance and reasonable audacity. (acr/mut)
