Humberto Leon and Carol Lim's second season at the command of Kenzo's creative direction lead to an intense collection of fifty looks characterized by the diversity of their shapes, patterns and textures.
The show held at Pierre et Marie Curie University - a huge and unexpected venue never used before at Paris Fashion Week - opened with a tweed-like jacket and pleated mini-skirt set mixed with a casual sweater with a tiger head and the logo of the brand that will doubtlessly become a best-seller. High-waisted trousers and maxi-skirts will also definitely set the trend.
The collection might have seemed a bit cacophonous but showed the freshness and punch of the duo behind Opening Ceremony. If Kenzo hired them it is without doubt to give the brand a new energy and get access to a younger and hyper audience. Goal achieved.
