KENZO MEN & WOMEN SS19 SHOW #PFW

Throughout our time at KENZO, it’s always been our prerogative to bring together the varying tribes and subcultures we come across throughout our every day. Today this is no exception. For our Spring-Summer 2019 collections for men and women, we invite you to celebrate summer ceremonies, gatherings of all sorts and the jubilation of rituals. Occasions where new-romantic hedonists meet British wedding goers and all the in-betweens.

Our men’s collection focuses on the blending of tailoring with sportswear and the admiring of proportions. Collarless double-breasted jackets with exaggerated reveres come in cotton/linen with a light resin finish or in a rubberized cotton jacquard. Coats are lightweight with deconstructed and soft shoulders or kimono inspired in a slub cotton or in our nylon medallion print. Pants and shorts are generous and bright or straight and chopped. Rose prints take on acid checks and vivid blues take on neutral beige.

For women’s we go high summer with aplomb. We adore effortless deconstruction and the delicately disordered. We match classic fine fabrics such as a flocked twill with georgette or create an effort in contrasts by matching saturated colors of acid yellow, cobalt or fuchsia with vivid prints of roses or checks. Our archive dot prints on layered twill offers extra scope to a traditional summer dress. Coats are embossed with python prints or in pink vinyl. Cocoon bombers play against strict tailored jackets. Voluminous technical nylon dresses with covered buttons in in lilac or orange offer ample opportunity for fluid movement. Guipure embroideries appear in Victorian tops or overlaid dresses.

For women accessories, we are happy to introduce two new styles: The Dot and the Goody. Inspired by different shaped carrier bags, they appear color blocked, embossed or in the prints of the season. Footwear of rubberized chunky platforms in checks or delicate summer sandals with a contrast kitten heel round off the proportioned silhouettes. Geometric earrings compliment the more ornate embroidered jewelry.

For men’s footwear, rubber jelly sandals walk alongside suede slipper moccasins and our revisited KENZO Sonic sneaker.
