One day when we feel like we need profound change in life, we want our hearts to be filled with freedom and our soul fluttering with the wind.

We want to step up to a challenge by slipping into a boyfriend jeans, a silhouette with a shirt borrowed from our dads; or a cool, menswear inspired twist for women. Tomboy style is so iconic and androgynous because we all carry that carefree boyish essence to some degree.

There is no rules for the tomboy. We can be free. We can be creative. Since the tomboy started with the revolution of freedom and creativity: Coco Chanel and masculine breakthroughs inspired by her man; or Yves Saint Laurent and Le Smoking suits having empowered women all over the world.

Putting aside the innate femininity, we let the masculine traits talk, presenting by the look of clean lines, a bold but simple pattern and minimalism.

With the durability of natural raffia, Leinné’s designers have created a variety of stylish bags and hats for the Tomboy.

1. Lutetia

Lutetia was inspired by the image of ancient rooftops that creates the beauty of Paris.

The modern minimal strap, narrow brim and the folds on the hat creates the strong and clean look. Without any other accessories, the tomboy style is more iconic and impressive just by tilting the hat. The minimalism and stylishness can be both performed when you style your own way.

2. Habi Jumbo

A desire to own a lovely yet not sporty, casual bag, Leinné designed Habi bag which is elegant and invigorating.
With highlighted cloth strap line in colors inspired by nature, which creates a light breakthrough.
Habi jumbo is not only the accessory but also the multitasking backpack for your all day long which fits 13 inch laptop and other essentials. All the things you need for a dynamic working day out of the office.

3. Henriette

At Leinné we believe in the magic of the moments that inspire us to achieve our inner sense. 
That was how the idea of Henriette Square came to Leinné. A box bag full of magical wonders that reminds us: every great dream begins with a dreamer.
Angular lines and precisely handwoven lines would catch your eye once you love clean and minimal details.
Henriette not only expresses minimalism in design, but also in lifestyle applications. Your essentials are all in one bag. Henriette is capacious for a phone, a headset and even a backup battery charger.

4. L’amant

The cinematic image of Jane March in the movie L’amant (1992) has inspired our Raffia L’amant hat. Masculine crown shape combined with a flat brim and simple band that brings charisma to the face beneath its brim.
L’amant is both masculine and feminine with flat brim and top matching the delicate strap. It is a totally innovative design but still brings cinematic inspiration.

L’amant can be mixed with a pair of trousers or a monochrome pleated skirt that still gives a strong, clean look.

5. Cresco

We take inspiration of the half moon to create Cresco with the curve brim.The hat is decorated simply with a large band which is unique and sophisticated comparing to ordinary visor hat line; suits outdoor formal and informal events.

The simplicity of the hat comes from the plain look without many details. There is all about playing with materials and techniques: the raffia and the cotton fabrics which are carefully selected , the cutting and sewing lines which are thoughtful made.

Cresco reminds us of a strong woman with a tied back hair and comfortable outfits. She is beautiful her way and full of energy.   

A trendsetter, who always stands out from the crowd, knows how to express her passion and sensitivity for fashion. She is not trendy, but has an eye for “it” items to make her look a trend.

With the aesthetic concept of contemporary architecture and formscape, Leinné creates the unique hats and bags, your “it” items, that highlights your adventurous day. The impressive accessories can make you a trendsetter.
