Yay! KENZO : FW12 recap
Humberto Leon and Carol Lim’s KENZO collection was so vibrant and varied. I don’t know how you couldn’t find something to get excited over. My top two favorite looks were this easy to wear maxi dress and the silky jumpsuits paired with pops of neon on the platform shoes.
Killer coats with knit collars and color-blocking paired slim trousers were easy to envision off the runway.
They covered a lot of trends throughout the show; from the color-blocking above to the peplum suit offerings shown here with piping and in a deep red velvet.
Fear not Print-Lovers! What KENZO collection (ever!) would be complete without some mind buzzing prints. These two are my favorites; but is it weird that the cat reminds me Givenchy?
Get optical with these Black + White combos. I love the flat oxfords with both of these looks.
Here we have a battle of the sex appeal. Are you the type of girl who likes to channel her sexiness in a slim pencil skirt or do you prefer being a kittenish minx in a baby-doll skirt? Your choice, you can do both if you like.
Last but not at all least are the fruit dresses and coats. I especially loved the idea of pairing a coat with this simple splattered a-line dress. The fruit prints of course remind me Stella & Prada’s past collections but it also reminds me of Andy Warhol’s space fruit paintings.
