Inspired by the rituals of Moroccan tribes and Berber art, Belgian designer Laurence Leenaert gathered fashion articles combining graphic prints, organic shapes and colorful textures from Marrakesh.

Laurence Leenaert presents his new collection of sarongs, kimonos, sandals and pottery

Blending contemporary art and the historical motifs of this region, Laurence Leenaert presents his new collection of sarongs, kimonos, sandals and pottery. The artist, who currently lives in Marrakesh, fell in love with this city while still living in Belgium, and after many trips back and forth, she decided to stay there.

Her designs are a series of spontaneous drawings made in the city, with a soft yet rough appearance that fuses the charm and the undeniable character of handmade designs. The artist works with different Moroccan craftsmen, who use their technique to create one-of-a-kind designs.

Laurence Leenaert founded her LNRCE brand in 2013 and looks forward to opening a showroom in Marrakesh, where she feels at home. If you want to know more about her work, visit her website and feel as if you are walking in one of the Medina markets.
