Paris Fashion Week

Kenzo Co-Directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon consistently stake their claim as the multi-taskers of the fashion calendar; having merged their menswear and womenswear collections and unveiled them both during the men’s Paris schedule for the past two seasons, for Autumn/Winter 2018 the duo also live-screened the latest Kenzo campaign during the show. The setting? A full on film set, complete with various locations – a car, a dining room, a laundrette – to take the brand’s loyalists through the story of Lim and Leon’s ever-blossoming friendship.

Looking to the brand’s heritage and never straying far from a bold logo, Japanese movie poster designs were stamped on T-shirts, dresses and skirts, while flashes of animated leopard print adorned boxy tailored separates and Marigold-style gloves. Heightened layering and a play on texture was also key, with silky bralets and slip dresses worn over boxy T-shirts or paired with oversized chunky cable knits, and svelte leather looks met by knee-high boots and topped with huggy jackets.

Prints were eminent; a number of head-to-toe looks came in an acidic floral print, swiftly followed by slightly subtler pastels – violet, cornflower blue and sherbet – some delicately embroidered with dainty blossoms. Eveningwear came in layers of ruched crushed velvet – colour-blocking at its finest – and embellished ensembles with added movement courtesy of intricate detailing and beading that resembled burning flames. A diverse collection, but one that was ready for lights, camera and action.
