Yesterday, Florentina Leitner unveiled her Fall/Winter 2022 collection Der Zaurberberg at London Fashion Week. As part of a commentary on sustainability and waste in today’s climate, Leitner’s fifth collection is a playful mash-up of femininity and elegance.
With oversized prize badges and gift bows created from upcycled trash bags and bottle caps, the collection made for a whimsical celebration. Based on Jeff Koons’s work, Leitner created puffy flower adornments in reflective fabrics, reminiscent of balloons. The embellishments reflected an upcycling party celebrating our future and improving our practices.
