Kenzo‘s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon goes back to their LA roots for the brand’s SS17 collection. Another show that has merged its women’s resort with menswear, the collection is inspired by a youth full of West and East coast club nights. It pays homage to the legendary night time haunts of this generation’s trailblazers. Kenzo’s show card ended with a list of such places, and just to name a few — Sound Factory, Twilo, Foxy Dollars, Roxy and Jungle Nation. “It’s interesting, because Carol and I lived through this generation and we wanted this collection to really celebrate nightlife. So I think the way it’s put together is this modern take on this way of dressing. I think there was a freedom in the ’90s, we tried to capture a little bit of that sense of freedom. And the sense of you going out an night with your friends and looking like a pack.”

The entire collection was a throwback, and was reminiscent of the great sweat-drenched nights and morning-after struggles. Lim and Leon were even able to track down the artists and promoters of that era, and reproduced the low-res flyers of the time. Models emerged in groups, looking like cliques walking down the runway. Looks included windbreakers, tracksuits, sweats and short-sleeved printed shirts. Overall, it was a light-hearted party and the collection will surely win fans over, whether you prefer minimal pieces or Kenzo’s bright prints.
