Considering how popular the Kenzo brand has become worldwide in recent seasons, it's unsurprising that designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon were inspired by the global traveller for Spring/Summer 2016. "She nonchalantly translates the souvenirs of her holiday adventures into her day-to-day wardrobe," the duo revealed. "She always has her swimwear at hand and she might find a place to stop for a dip en route to her next destination."
Presented to the audience by way of a tableaux of models sailing past on conveyor-belt blocks, the result was an eclectic and colourful mix of layers that were very wearable. Short, boxy skirts appeared under wide-sleeve tunic tops in clashing chevron prints. Trousers, both narrow and wide, were slouchy, with zig-zag seams and printed with graphic houndstooth patterns. Sundresses came apron style with handkerchief hemlines and open backs. Accessories-wise, belted pouches and backpacks added to the globetrotting vibe while scuba shoes or flat gladiator sandal-boots were practical for all terrains. It was the perfect travel capsule wardrobe for the ever-adventurous Kenzo girl.
