The Peak (Singapore)



Kenzo’s Fall/Winter 2022 collection marks the debut of new artistic director Nigo, better known (for now) as the founder of streetwear labels A Bathing Ape and Human Made. Presented at the Galerie Vivienne in Paris, where brand founder Kenzo Takada unveiled his first collection back in 1970, Nigo’s designs for men and women included creations that merged different cultural influences. Among them were varsity jackets that reflected the interest Japanese fashionist­as in the ‘60s showed for the American Ivy League style.

This season, collegiate sports also provide a competitiv­e edge for some collection­s. Synonymous with what is often referred to as a hooligan’s sport played by gentlemen, the rugby shirt inspired outsized interpreta­tions at Louis Vuitton’s womenswear as well as Burberry. Extra credit, however, surely, goes to Hedi Slimane’s handful of college-inspired creations for Celine’s “Boy Doll” Fall collection. The brand’s creative director elevated the classic crew-neck knit into an intricatel­y fringed sweater bearing a varsity-style capital C.
