Exhibiting at Le Trianon in Pigalle, KENZO‘s second Memento collection took place in a majestic setting decorated with sake barrels, food stands distributing tempura and mochi as well as lanterns bathed in red and purple lights. Growing quickly with a millennial audience, KENZO’s creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim decided to dedicate this project to original creator Kenzo Takada.

Separated into three different acts, the project showcases different ways to rework Takada’s heritage by working through denim in the ’70s. With 30% of the clothes directly sourced from the brand’s archive, from workwear-inspired indigo jeans to overalls, the pair managed to modernize all looks with reversible Hawaiian shirts, bamboo-printed shirts and mini-backpacks. By focusing on jeans and spinning out various ways to reinterpret them, the duo finds creative way to relive Kenzo’s past and revamp it for the modern consumer.
