PLAY, WEAR, LAYER!
Clean, practical and timeless silhouettes are the heart of LEYA, coupled with an exploration colors and fun details. LEYA's style is personal and ever-evolving: by playing with the LEYA closet and building looks with lively colors and layerable pieces of the collection, LEYA's aesthetic comes to life.
Anita’s playful approach stems from mixing her style with that of her two brothers in her adolescence. She furtively rummaged through their closets to incorporate their oversized and boyish elements into her own wardrobe; pairing her brother’s oxford shirts with her more-fitted pieces. She created LEYA with this contrasting, comfortable mindset: womenswear can be more dynamic.
Having studied at Central Saint Martins, Anita experienced the art of experimental, and uber-contemporary designs. However, she has always had an affinity for everyday clothing.
Clothing represents more than just pieces of garment. Everyday wear embodies the mindset of its people, and in turn, shapes the culture of its time.
