After delivering the inaugural release following its Fall/Winter 2022 show, NIGO‘s KENZO has returned with Drop 2 for the Spring/Summer 2022 season, titled “Tiger Tail.” The upcoming drop continues to share the newly appointed Artistic Director’s vision of the house, with two additional capsules to come.
The latest limited-edition range highlights NIGO’s cartoonish reimagination of KENZO’s signature tiger emblem along with an appreciation for flora and fauna. Comprised of two five-piece looks, the selection features options for men and women, though a genderless spirit prevails.
The timeless and essential pieces are led by a relaxed black oversized molleton hoodie, dark green drawstring cotton cargo trouser with the new signature flower button. Other standouts include a black sweatshirt and black and white T-shirts emblazoned with illustrated tiger tail motifs at the rear.
The “Tiger Tail” collection encapsulates the root of NIGO’s outlook for KENZO – “a real wardrobe for the future, tied to the wisdom of the past.” Through expanding motifs and drawing on a uniquely Japanese sensibility, the capsule serves as an homage to founder Kenzo Takada and the natural elements key to his legacy.
Check out the “Tiger Tail” collection by NIGO above and shop the limited-edition range on KENZO’s website from March 5.
For more contemporary fashion, AMBUSH®’s FW22 collection is both nostalgic and futuristic.
