Woke up early in the morning to attend Kenzo's show on January 18 and totally blown away by the fall/winter collection. As you know, Kenzo is one of my all time favorite brands and of course you know my love towards mens fashion is undeniable. As it was my first time attending men's fashion show, I gotta say the vibe and the setting are really different compared to women's. Just scroll down if you don't know what I'm talking about. Apologize for the not-that-nice pictures taken with my humble camera.
"We considered the quintessenial man's wardrobe from an altered perspective. We directed our gaze to America's Northwest and focused on how perceived classic elements could be broken and reinterpreted. An effort in opposites attract where the familiar is twisted. The collection is bold, precise in its considered mixing of textures, proportions and shapes. Everyday tailoring is distinguished yet distorted and what appears as the norm is reflected in an unconventional light."
How creative can these two designers are. Who would have thought about using factory worker's tool creatures as an inspiration? Not only that, from what I read, the accessories are industrial and surface as elements from a steelworkers uniform. Safety boots anchor the chopped up silhouette.The tool creature bracelets adorn workers wrists while spanner and nuts are pinned to down jackets. I am just wowed, this is why I love Kenzo so much, the creativity and the idea of the designers are just beyond our imagination. I just want to say thank you Kenzo so much for providing me the invitation and letting me witness this awesome show, I can't ask for more.
