KENZO Launches Fall/Winter 2017 With Surreal Short Films
Including a monologue centered around orange juice.
Set to debut its Fall/Winter 2017 collection, KENZO has tapped a trio of young filmmakers to promote the line. Spanning three boundary-pushing works, the short films are anything but clothing advertisements.
Mati Diop, Baptist Penneticobra and Eduardo Williams present a selection of forward-thinking, brief movies. Each director has their own voice and intention in creating the pieces, which span a variety of countries. With only the theme of “Inhabit the Earth” to guide them, the films all offer wholly disparate experiences — from Williams’ surreal TZZD to Penneticobra’s monologue-based Untitled (Juice). With such distinct voices at work the content of the videos speaks for itself, with KENZO playing a relatively minor role in the proceedings, only stepping in to costume the actors.
