Brand Focus | KENZO

Tuesday August 27, 2013

Brand new to Roden Gray is popular Paris-based label KENZO. Famous for founder Kenzo Takada’s combination of Japanese-influenced style and high fashion Parisian fabrication, the label is now helmed by Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, who have created an exciting new take on the revolutionary spirit on which it was originally founded. The Fall/Winter 2013 collection from KENZO takes the jungle to the skies, creating a fictitious new world set entirely beyond the clouds and inspired by ancient mythologies of the mystical world above. The modern world on the ground merges with the heavens above with celestial cloud and lightning bolt prints and a colour palette of sky blues and deep reds. New round-shouldered silhouettes are introduced, reminiscent of the warriors often featured in mythical battles, and the iconic KENZO tiger takes flight to join the population of dragons and serpents that inhabit the sky jungle.

From t-shirts to button-ups, the stormy cloud print is one of the best features of this season.

Pair a sky blue colour palette with a signature tiger print for a perfect combination of jungle and sky.
