Women’s Pre-Fall Collection 2013
THE KENZO WOMENS 2013 PRE-FALL COLLECTION EXPLORES THE JUXTAPOSITION OF THE SKY AND THE MODERN WORLD
Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, inspired by Kenzo Takada’s masterful use of ruffles in his 1970’s Jungle Jap collections, flirt with the delicate meandering lines on jackets, skirts and tops. Wrap coats and jackets conceal fasteners and the garments graphic lines hint at pilots presiding over the sky. Trompe l’oeuil dresses with cascading tiers and the contrasting voluminous tops paired with tailored, high-waisted pencil trousers and a-line skirts accentuate the feminine allure of this collection.
The collection of prints, touching the celestial through introduction of hand-painted motifs of clouds bathed in a red sunset and lightning bolts, along with motifs of mourning flowers, two-headed tigers and dragon scales, fuses effortlessly with the base colours of paprika, pastel blue and pink. The delicate fabrics of quilted duchess satin toy harmoniously with nubby wools, neoprene, printed denim and shearling.
For accessories, fun ruffled metal necklaces and two tone boots are joined by a selection of new rain drop lock handbags and clutches in painted, cracked and silver leathers.
