KENZO GOES TO FLORENCE!

 

We are very excited to say that this week we traveled to Florence to show the fall winter 2013 men's collection at Pitti Uomo !

 

Pitti Uomo is one of the more prestigious mens fashion tradeshow in the world and opens fashion week in Milan this week. For the January 2013 edition, Pitti Uomo 83 , to be held in Florence from January 8 - 11, 2013, at the Fortezza da Basso, invited Kenzo to represent mens fashion.

"Kenzo is one of the most interesting phenomena of recent seasons", says Lapo Cianchi, the Pitti Immagine Communications and Events Director, "and, to be frank, one of the most amusing. The advent of Humberto Leon and Carol Lim has produced a radical turnaround in one year. The founder's legacy is the inspiring essence rather than a model to reproduce. The exoticism of the early collections (such as the anti-naturalistic and symbolic jungle à la Henri Rousseau) has a powerful and liberating effect, the entire design conveys dynamism and energy. These two designers know their customers, they know how to create immediate and special things and how to build a world around their work. It is a democratic, attractive world”.

 

More surprises are to be discovered at our KENZO MARKET, starting today.

So to those who are in Florence, you should better hurry!
