Kenzo Resort 2015

“We wanted to embrace Paris as an outsider and interpret what we feel the French girl is,” said Humberto Leon of the brand's inspiration.

In the mid-Sixties Kenzo Takada left Japan for Paris, where he began to cultivate his own take on the city’s style. Humberto Leon and Carol Lim had that in mind for resort, working a unique version of French chic into their Kenzo lineup. “We wanted to embrace Paris as an outsider and interpret what we feel the French girl is,” Leon said. The duo playfully reinterpreted Parisian staples — the chemise, cabans, Breton stripes — often pulling them together with bold print combinations, i.e., a casually elegant sweater in a graphic grid pattern shown with wide-leg polka dot pants. Their version of a crisp white blouse, meanwhile, came as a parachutelike nylon top tucked into cropped black pants with wide cuffs. Throughout, Eiffel Tower and Statue of Liberty motifs added to the Gallic theme.
