Growing up in a heavily infused artistic environment, Léa Peckre is a natural at drawing inspiration from her surroundings. Known as the ‘golden hour’ for creativity, the French born designer used ‘5am’ as a theme for her latest collection. The last desperate grasp of night and the first ushering of the coming day, a time of dawns chorus and the whispering’s of the first metro in the morning.

As with her previous designs, Léa Peckre indulges in subtle sensuality in her tailoring by using contrasting fabrics like vinyl and tulle. She also flirts with the concept of proportions; wide trouser legs and cinched waists. Whilst maintaining a generally monochrome colour palette, she administers striking colours like fuchsia and duck egg blue which distinguishes piece from the predominately black and white scheme.

Making a nod to trends of late, in particular the more athletic aesthetic we have seen over the last year. Peckre chose to utilise drawstrings in most of her designs, mostly weaved in the rouching on her skirts, dresses and tops.

Léa Peckre continues to grow from strength to strength, not fading into the background among her peers like Each X Other and Anne Sofie Madsen in which she was slotted between on day one of Paris Fashion Week.
