Since Carol Lim and Hum­berto Leon took over, the Kenzo col­lec­tions have con­sis­tently been a col­lage of print and colour. This time, the pair looked to In­dia. The coun­try’s gilded glam­our re­sulted in the jac­quard sep­a­rates and printed lamé while the hy­per-sat­u­rated hues were trans­lated through fire-engine red and royal blue bomber jack­ets. Those streetwear pieces such as the bombers and sweaters are where the de­sign­ers have al­ways ex­celled, and this sea­son they cre­ated even more de­sir­able ver­sions fea­tur­ing croc­o­dile em­boss­ing and a witty evil-eye print. Like many oth­ers, Lim and Leon also did over­sized, rounded shapes but in­stead of a retro out­look, they kept theirs youth­ful, mod­ern, and wear­able, which ba­si­cally sums up ev­ery­thing they’ve been do­ing right at Kenzo so far.
