After working with Dries Van Noten, Leitner focused on her label and since then she’s been creating unique projects able to speak for themselves. Searching into old movies, this hint of nostalgia explored by Leitner brings at the same time a familiar and fascinating eeriness. Distancing herself from the outside world, The Royal Leitners is a reflective exploration of the notion of home and the sense of family.
For Viennese-born fashion designer Florentina Leitner, the most important aspect of her work is that it brings joy to the wearer. “I don’t want to take myself, or fashion, too seriously,” she tells us over the phone from her new apartment in Antwerp. Fashion has now become instinctive to Leitner, who explains how her collections come together very naturally. “I’m always looking out for things and if there is something that triggers me, I will follow it.”
