In Milan, we saw Donatello present a spring/summer collection for Versace in remembrance to the work of her late brother and founder of the Versace fashion house, Gianni Versace. Now in Paris, another tribute to a beloved fashion house founder was executed. Yesterday, Kenzo Paris paid tribute to its Japanese founder, Kenzo Takada and his ventures with denim. Creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim presented an extensive range of denim pieces and even re-introduced some pieces from the Kenzo archives.
There were denim bucket hats, denim jackets, dresses and jumpsuits, and loose cut jeans with large pockets. The popular Kenzo tiger was also present in a floral leaf print background, and bamboo tree prints also made an appearance in the collection. In all, Kenzo delivered a collection fit for the name Kenzo La Collection Memento. Below are a few of our best looks from the show. Click on our Gallery to view the full collection.
