The film CLOUDBUSTING was directed by Partel Oliva, a creative duo who also oversees the artistic direction of all communication at KENZO for our creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon.
Here Partel Oliva propose their interpretation of the fantastic and post-romantic universe of the men’s collection and women’s precollection for Fall/Winter 2013: an abstract tale populated by stunt riders. A dream steeped in the troubling atmosphere of Day Clouds and Night Clouds; the key prints of these collections.
"The concept came from the Men's collection. At the show, we saw these looks emerge, precise and technical, as if powered by a definite sense of purpose, but also embellished and decorated with painterly motifs. The contrast was beautiful, like a hand embroidered space suit, something in itself almost contradictory. We wanted to develop this first impression by finding the perfect world from which these looks were beamed, and the duty to which they were dedicated. From this came the motorbikes, the helmeted acrobats endlessly polishing off impossible movements and the girl in the middle, who follows her own set of rules and splinters the perfect order."
