Under the helm of newly appointed creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim – the cool duo behind Opening Ceremony – Kenzo recently unveiled its collection for Fall/Winter 2012. Inspired by late Apple founder Steve Jobs, Leon and Lim have continued to build on the brand’s underpinning with a sportier and streamlined edge. The smart and playful assortment features some utilitarian garments that are actualized with recurring patterns or bold, flamboyant colors. Exuding an air of timelessness and character, styling involves the coupling of classic and quirky styles including slim cut suits, double-breasted coats, tailored pants, reworked brogues and of course, Jobs’s favorite turtle necks.
