Protecting the Planet and Easy-Breezy Fashion at Kenzo

By Robyn Roberts

October 1, 2014

Opinionated designers have long used media-hyped fashion week to present their causes along with their new collection. For Paris fashion week, spring/summer 2015, the designers at Kenzo were already attuned to this action. Humberto Leon and Carol Lim delivered a strong message in various languages: “Kenzo would like to remind you there is no planet B. Please protect what is precious.”

The designers created a collection invoking the California lifestyle of their youth with a nod to Kenzo Takada’s native Japan. Massive-legged palazzo pants in denim, naturally, were a surprise guest but definitely representative of that West Coast skater-vibe. Denim was also present on oversized box-shaped pullovers and ankle-length split-hem skirts. More glamorous ensembles brought balance to the laidback factor with laser-cut, long, layered skirts and sleeveless dresses either in stark white or deep navy. Watercolors added whimsy to the relaxed collection in splashes of printed dresses and slouchy separates. We love one of the finale looks—a black vest with zipper details and low-hanging front panels paired with slouchy, pleated trousers.
