Specializing in collage, Xia’s collections always express a unique design spirit. Her AW17 collection Hero’s Mind, Leaf delivers another bright, fun, and extremely playful series that tells an evocative and powerful story. Decidedly high-quality fabrics and precisely finished garments help Leaf visually recreate the metaphoric shift from girlhood to womanhood with accessible and artful pieces that maintain their wearability.
Volume, graphic colours, and appliqué form the majority her innovative collection. Honouring a love for collage, Xia’s creativity is once again bred through oversized shapes and bonded fabrics that inform a reimagined take on classic silhouettes. At first featuring innocent pinks, Xia’s addition of pattern creates beautiful clashes within the ensemble.
For SS17 Leaf Xia collaborated with Magnum icecream company to create a bespoke print for them that was exhibited as part of Shanghai Fashion Week. Leaf Xia will be part of the Black PR Showroom this season.
