Kenzo #RTW Spring 2015 #PFW

"The new collection was a mash-up of the skater culture of Leon's and Lim's California childhoods and the atelier workmanship of their adopted city, with a soupçon of Kenzo Takada's native Japan. Skate-kid palazzo pants with enormous leg openings shared the catwalk with calf-length trumpet dresses in graphic, Eiffel Tower-inspired lace. Broderie anglaise in the blocky ethers of the Kenzo logo mingled with pale blue denim cut into easy, relaxed pieces. It was an energetic mix - the streetwise sensibility of the skater silhouettes softened by the presence of elegant 1920s shapes. A few of the looks were too slouchy; it was hard to find the model inside a printed pink oversize jacket and split-seam palazzo pants. But there was a nice athleticism to a tank and floor-length skirt laser-cut in tiny dots. And a sack coat with rubberized detailing on the lapels worn with swaggering blue jeans was a smart blending of Leon and Lim's old and new habitats. If it should come to planet B climate-wise, their shower sandals looked seaworthy." -
