Léa Peckre is a Paris based womenswear brand founded in 2012
Graduated from The Ecole Nationale Des Arts Visuels de la Cambre in the fashion section, Léa Peckre, wins the L’Oreal Great Professional Prize at the 25th festival of fashion and photography of Hyères in 2011 with her women collection called Cimeteries are fields of flowers.
Lea Peckre launched her own brand with her fall-winter 2013-2014 collection entitled «Flowers are in born in shadows». For fall-winter 2014-2015, she designed a unique ready-to-wear clothing line for the 130th anniversary of the lingerie brand Maison Lejaby and for spring-summer 2015, she opens Paris fashion week, for the first time as a part of the official calendar, at the Hotel de Ville, with her collection « Part I ». The following season, she presented her Fall Winter 15 collection « Part II » which featured a shoe collaboration with fellow french designer Amelie Pichard. In July 2015, the brand was awarded with the prestigious ANDAM First Collection Prize, a genuine proof of recognition by her peers. More recently, Lea Peckre showed her Spring Summer 2016 collection « Pearls are born in the dust » at the Institut du Monde Arabe during the latest Paris Fashion Week. The brand is now distributed in Europe (Maria Luisa, Paris…), in the United States (Opening Ceremony, Nordstrom….) in China and Russia. The Léa Peckre woman evokes a sophisticated silhouette. Its volumes can be compared to organic shapes. Their symmetrical ornaments and laces are interlocked with an almost surgical precision. The materials which are borrowed to the world of lingerie, offer an interplay of transparency which doesn’t reveal the body and leaves room for imagination. By contrast, the use of casual materials such as denim is a testimony of her project to offer comfortable and elaborately designed garments. The proportions that seem classical, are often reworked to create original tailored pieces which embrace, highlight, and shape the body. Léa Peckre associates sculptural volumes and soft materials, combines graphics and light effects, merges rigidity and lightness.
