There’s nothing stopping the full-speed freight train that is the Kenzo x H&M collaboration for 2016 fall/winter. Just a few days ago, the duo unveiled their lookbook and then fans were treated to an up-close viewing of all the garments provided in the eclectic offering. Recently, a slew of one-minute interviews featuring creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon alongside campaign ambassadors Rosario Dawson, Chloe Sevigny and Xiuhtezcatl Martinez have surfaced to amp up excitement surrounding the range. Lim and Leon talk inspiration, mission, and their shared enthusiasm for partnering with retail giant H&M.

Watch the interview with the creative directors above and then take a look at select interviews with the duo’s campaign ambassadors below. The collection is slated to launch at H&M stores on November 3.
