Trousers and jackets in fine and light nylon or waterproof cotton, tops with drawstrings which create crosses or form long lines on the arms or on the chest.
The shirt is proposed in two different denims, whilst the trousers are striped in washed out bands. The ultra-worked knitwear goes right up to being proposed in 3D making futuristic points. The sandy and anthracite tones remind us of the call to nature but also to space with prints of the surface of the moon. With the multi pocket bag in parachute material, the Kenzo explorer is ready to explore many untouched territories of the urban jungle.
Carol Lim and Humberto Leon Interview:
It’s always story telling for us, it’s a conversation that starts, and this collection was really about this idea of travel, but not your normal travel. It’s all about clothing that can work from day to night, casual to formal, I think that there’s something nice about this individualistic idea that there’s one wardrobe. It’s all about creating your own volume, and your own technique and a lot of texture, you’ll see some knitwear with some really dimensional elements, but there are a lot of amazing colours and textures. A lot of development that we worked on.
The history of the house has been rooted, in all these qualities: a romantic quality, an urban quality and a formal quality, so we’ve always tried to explore all different elements of that.
