For its Fall/Winter 2013 campaign, Kenzo teamed up with Maurizio Cattelan, Micol Talso and Pierpaolo Ferrari – the creative minds behind TOILETPAPER. The results see Sean O’Pry and Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi alongside everything from a kitten and tiger-striped dog to slippery banana peels and more in a set of surrealist imagery that looks like something right out of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland – the perfect visual accompaniment to Kenzo’s whimsical designs and color palette. Touching on the collaboration, Kenzo’s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon said:
There’s something so exciting about watching the TOILETPAPER team work. Maurizio, Pierpaolo and Micol express a huge essence of freedom in their methods and when we initially discussed the inspirations for the campaign, we were blown away by their immediate suggestions for interpretation. As soon as the shoot began, the images evolved even more. We couldn’t have imagined better, sharper or more perfect images to represent our fall/winter collections and are delighted to have had the opportunity to collaborate with such an inspired group.
