Leandre, a passionate autodidact
Culture, music, art in all its forms has always fascinated Leandre. This great dreamer has always known that this artistic path will be his. It was while traveling to Los Angeles, specifically Venice Beach, that her heart capsized. This place where everything is big, where everything is possible, where dreams are not illusory, was a revelation for him: on his return to France, he in turn will create.
Originally from Bordeaux, Leandre founded his brand Leandre Lerouge in 2018 with the desire to offer an eclectic and explosive universe of creativity. For three years, the designer takes the time to build his DNA and gives birth to his "Space Suit", a genderless character that fits into animated paintings in augmented reality. Exhibited at the Cox Gallery in Bordeaux, the works seduce the public and set the tone for the inspiration of Leandre Lerouge: a dreamlike, colorful and sophisticated world.
Solar and positive collections
After making an impression with his “Space Suit”, Leandre Lerouge pursues his creative quest by imagining a sassy and colorful fashion collection. Through clothing, the Bordeaux house transmits a vibrant message of positivity, sun and color. The sun is the common thread running through each room in the house.

Diversity has no age
