Irish Linen Collection

[vc_row row_scroll_icon="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text] Leocé Luxury Couture launches Irish linen Collection [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Cape Town-based fashion brand, Leocé Luxury Couture has launched an Irish linen collection – a first for the recently rebranded label, previously known as Geo by George. Soft, breathable and lightweight, the new collection consists of the chicest linen pieces that will keep you cool all summer – dresses, jumpsuits, blouses, skirts and shorts. “When we rebranded Geo by George to Leocé Luxury Couture, we decided to also bring out a simple, classic and, most importantly, affordable collection,” explains director and head designer, George Stander. “The Irish linen collection has something for all ages and body types,” he adds. Not only is easy, breezy linen the trend you’ll want to wear all summer long, it’s also sustainable and gets better with age. For Leocé’s Irish linen collection, the effortless textile has been reimagined to make its way into the heart and closet of the modern-day fashion lover – think billowing midis, ‘90s slip styles and belted minis in earthy tones such as terracotta, brown, olive and cream. “We kept clean, straight lines throughout the design process to enable women to add their personal touch to their outfit,” explains George. For instance, the sage green Elm Dress can be layered up with jackets and boots in late spring and early autumn, or topped off with a straw hat for a day at the beach or a picnic in the park. Meanwhile, the Nova Dress in the energetic, happy-feeling hue of lemon yellow can be kept minimal for daytime styling, or teamed with bare skin and gold jewellery to make it more evening-appropriate. However, the cool factor of the new collection goes beyond sporting just the perfect linen dress that will inject easy elegance into your wardrobe. Comfort and style come together in Leocé’s Fern Shorts, which pair well with the Opal Blouse, or Flora Shorts – a perfect match for the Bloom Blouse. Trade in your denim skirts and try a pair of these comfy tailored shorts that are perfect for every picnic. As far as effortless staple pieces go, the Dionne Blouse and Silver Skirt as well as the Gemma Blouse and Terra Skirt will earn a permanent place in your wardrobe. Try these pieces on with every one of your summer tops and bottoms and you’ll be happy to find that they really do go with everything. On the other hand, the Fiore Jumpsuit is the ultimate...

Sleepwear & Dressing Gowns

[vc_row row_scroll_icon="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text] Cosy up in Leocé Luxury Couture’s new Sleepwear Collection [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Cape Town-based fashion brand Leocé Luxury Couture has launched a sleepwear collection consisting of stylish, comfort-forward silk sleepwear and dressing gowns for bedtime and beyond. Adding to Leocé’s existing collection of formal dresses, wedding gowns and, most recently, Irish linen, the introduction of this new collection is in line with director and head designer George Stander’s mission to make the recently rebranded label – previously known as Geo by George – more affordable and accessible. The epitome of luxury fabric, silk has the power to help you feel dressed up even when you’re dressing down. Whether you’re wanting to upgrade your nighttime attire for the winter months ahead or to simply add luxury to your morning routine, consider Leocé’s irresistible silk sleepwear and dressing gowns. They aren’t just chic; vitally, they’re also lightweight and cozy. Made from smooth, extremely fine and inherently sultry silk fabric – imported from a high-quality silk mill in the UK – these garments give a soft feeling that floats over the skin. There’s something alluring and glamorous about slipping into a sweet short set just to snooze or lazing the day away in a dreamy robe that feels extravagant thanks to bold prints and a touch of embellishments. The everyday go-to, the supremely soft camisole and pants set available in black and navy, is easy to live in and sophisticated for bedtime. Plus, for warm sleepers, a short set is always best. Wear it at night for luxurious lounging around the house or pair it with a chunky oversized knit. On the other hand, the lace-trimmed camisole and pants set in white, or turquoise is extra-special for a bachelor party or wedding night. These polished and relaxed pieces will inspire you to saunter around in them even during the waking hours – get the most out of this luxe set by dressing it up for a Zoom cocktail hour. At the end of a long day, the little things – a warm bubble bath, hydrating face mask, scented candle and the indulgent soft pink pipe-lined trim set – can make any old weeknight feel more special. Designed with movement in mind, you’ll be having sweet dreams all night long in this romantic sleepwear. And on the nights when you can’t bother to wear pants or shorts, the elegant sand or blue nightdress is the next best thing. Like silk sleepwear,...

Wedding Dresses

[vc_row row_scroll_icon="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text] Beyond-dreamy spring bridal creations from Leocé Luxury Couture [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_scroll_icon="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text]Chilly temperatures are slowly fading away and spring – the sun-filled season of peonies, roses, tulips, calla lilies, hydrangeas, sweet peas, ranunculus and, most importantly, weddings – is finally upon us. For most brides, the sweet season signifies not only an abundance of flowers, pastel colours (think lilac, sky, pistachio, buttercup and more) and garden-inspired details, but also gorgeous wedding gowns that translate perfectly to springtime. Whether your bridal style is romantic, traditional, boho, modern, glamorous or edgy, there’s dress for you and your warm-weather nuptials from Leocé Luxury Couture. For a romantic look that’s soft and whimsical, our bead-encrusted Beatrice dress is the perfect complement to a wedding full of feminine accents. Featuring delicate pearl detailing on the bodice and a voluminous skirt, it’s the epitome of what a romantic wedding dress should look like. Complete the look with delicate earrings, makeup in soft pink tones and a loose chignon or long, soft curls. Our stunning The Duchess dress for the classic traditional bride, crafted from lustrous satin, will never go out of style. The standout detail is the low back – wear it with a loose bun and dewy makeup. When it comes to boho bridal style, our beautiful Galene dress pairs seamlessly with vintage-themed and glamorous garden weddings. For a laidback look that embodies a carefree spirit, skip the veil and opt for a flower crown. Sleek, sophisticated and cool, our Kai dress looks effortlessly stylish on a modern bride. With a high neckline, sheer details and strategic embroidery placement, it’s a refreshing take on a classic silhouette. Keep the accessories fresh with statement hairpins or sleek earrings. The glamorous bride is all about drama in the best way – we’re talking dramatic silhouettes and opulent beading to sparkle and shine down the aisle. Our body-hugging Nix dress has extra-special details that channel those elements. Consider a bedazzled hair comb to finish the look. Who says you have to wear white though? What’s first and foremost in regards to the edgy non-traditional brides is that anything goes. Our showstopping Black & Gold dress is a little sexy, impeccably tailored and impossibly chic – you’ll never want to take this fashion-forward gown off. Brides can work hand-in-hand with head designer George Stander to personalise the style, cut, fabric and all the additional details. This beautiful, bespoke process results in a truly one-of-a-kind Leocé...

For the guest who seeks a classic silhouette with an updated twist, the high-necked Emeralda Gown in the deep jewel tone of emerald is a supremely sophisticated alternative to wearing black to a formal wedding. Meanwhile, the sumptuous satin Canerie Gown in canary yellow and the floor-length Blaze Gown in scarlet red are both versatile enough to be worn to a summer wedding in a ballroom, garden or winery. To update your party-season look, Leocé is reinventing the concept of dressing up.

Welcome to Leocé Luxury Couture

[vc_row row_scroll_icon="no"][vc_column][vc_column_text] Having somewhere to go is home. Having someone to love is family. And having both is a blessing.” Every end is a new beginning. Welcome to the new chapter in our journey – welcome to Leocé Luxury Couture. [/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Over the last year, director and head designer George Stander has dedicated much headspace to his brand, his business and what the future holds. It was during this time that he became very nostalgic about his younger days; a time when he spent most of his days surrounded by his family. This got George thinking about how important a role his family played in his life, who he is today and, by extension, what his business has become. As an ode to his family, George decided to do something calculated but drastic: he decided to rebrand his business. Geo by George is now Leocé Luxury Couture. A culmination of names in George’s family, Leocé is truly a brand for women of every age, producing garments that can be dressed up for formal occasions or that all-important business meeting, but can also be dressed down for a casual dinner with loved ones. “My roots are the essence of my whole being. As a family we may be different in many ways, but we have one thing in common – love,” says George. “With this big change comes one big promise: I will continue to design and produce luxury garments of the highest quality. This is something that will never change.” He adds that he has a deep passion for his career, and that it’s a special feeling knowing that his family are now a part of his journey. Every Leocé piece provides women with a sense of elegance, style and empowerment – it makes women feel powerful and confident, while adding an elegant, feminine touch.[/vc_column_text][eltd_separator position="center" color="#ffffff" thickness="20"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row row_scroll_icon="no"][vc_column][eltd_image_gallery type="image_grid" column_number="4" spacing="no_space" pretty_photo="no" grayscale="no" images="5158,7068,6060,6989,6874,6843,6823,5552,5337,5016,4955,7536" image_size="500X500"][/vc_column][/vc_row]...
