Kenzo 2013 Fall Collection

Humberto Leon and Carol Lim recently wrapped up Kenzo‘s Fall 2013 show, held at Florence’s Mercato Centrale di San Lorenzo. A large influence playing into their show was none other than Kenzo Takada, who first opened his Jungle Jap boutique in Paris in the ’70s. Leon and Lim applied these sensibilities to their offering called “The Jungle of the Sky,” inspired by a myth they created about “sky-bound gods and goddesses and the mortal pilots whose line of duty sent them into the ether.”

The result was cumulus clouds figuring in the patterns and sky blue, deep red and black featuring in the fabrics used, 80% of which were newly developed for the collection. Emphasizing technical nylon, the pieces give a very distinct futuristic look. Style aside, however, the designers were highly invested in the mythos behind their collection, as the backpacks were made in collaboration with the hard-shell manufacturer Boblbee while other accessories such as metal pocket squares, jewelry and button coverings designed by Delfina Delettrez suggested function.
