PFW: Kenzo Fall '13
Kenzo showed a rich collection inspired by the temples of India, China, and Nepal. The stronger elements were the slim jacquard trousers and flocked lamé jackets with sleeves and shoulders rounded. The all-seeing protective eye talisman was an important symbol for the collection.
“This season is more about the pop side of the brand,” said Humberto before the show. The magnificent duo, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon strove for maximum commercial appeal especially with the youthful demographic with a strong set of covetable pieces.
And as for those Kenzo fans that snap up everything tiger-printed, they will have plenty of eye-printed pieces to keep them happy this fall. Sweatshirts printed with one giant eye, sweatshirts with an allover eye pattern, you name it.
Head-to-toe prints, modern structural details, occasional metallic vibes, blue tones, intense red, luxurious golden tones along with the usual neutral hues in bold combos at Kenzo Fall 2013.
