SPRING-SUMMER 2024 FASHION SHOW BY NIGO
KENZO TAKES OVER SHANGHAI WITH ITS SHOW
Artistic Director Nigo has chosen Shanghai for this first ever KENZO show in China that was held at
the Shanghai Port International Cruise Terminal, on the Bund by the Huangpu River against the international megacity’s modern skyline.
The event was thus echoing its Men’s and Women’s Spring-Summer 2024 collection
which originated in Paris on June 23rd during Men’s Fashion Week, on the Passerelle Debilly,
the iconic footbridge that connects the Palais de Tokyo with the Eiffel Tower over the River Seine in Paris.
The collection stages a number of code-switches between the Japanese and Western wardrobes.
The judo uwagi is re-contextualised as a chore jacket, and seigaiha – an ancient wave print – is adapted in indigo.
The women’s silhouette cuts an intensified elegant line in the lightweight layering of translucent fabrics adorned with reinvigorated archival motifs.
The collection features a creative dialogue with the Japanese graphic artist Verdy – a long-time friend of Nigo –
who interprets the KENZO logo in his signature swashed font, emblazoned across garments and accessories.
