“I love the excitement of pure, vibrant colour. Painting has always been as natural as breathing for me; and as necessary.” (Leona Lengyel)
Born in Hungary into a family of jewellers, Leona’s love of art and design began at an early age. Her artist’s name, ‘Léna’ was created when the young Leona began experimenting with painting in oil and acrylic.
Leona’s artistic flair, creative inspiration and design talent led to the launch of her eponymous label in 2012. Based in London, Leona Lengyel offers exquisite silk and rayon scarves, beach sarongs, wraps and pocket squares, all of which are recognised for their exquisite luxury.
Using traditional silk painting techniques in a process that combines her love of painting and textiles, Leona hand paints every design. Each original image is digitally transformed onto luxurious silk satin, silk chiffon or rayon for a high quality, super soft accessory that also acts as a piece of wearable art.
Every piece from the Leona Lengyel brand is bright, colourful and unique, designed to add a striking style statement to even the most conservative of outfits.
Indeed, this innovative and skilled designer has not gone unnoticed. Her creations have been featured in prestigious publications such as Vogue, Marie Claire, Tatler and InStyle. The brand was also handpicked to exhibit at industry events including the prestigious Vodafone London Fashion Weekend, Pure London and Fashion’s Finest Show in the United Kingdom.
