Her American, European and Asian roots as well as her striking doll-like face led to her rise as one of the most unique-looking and beloved top models. For this campaign, we rediscover a siren in a surreal universe of striking colors.
KENZO IN HONG KONG - PART#2: EMMANUEL PERROTIN GALLERY
After the re-opening of our store at Landmark, the celebrations continued in nearby Central district. Carol and Humberto hosted a dinner at Emmanuel Perrotin Gallery, which represents Maurizio Cattelan, one of our favourite artist who's also part of the TOILETPAPER team behind our Fall/Winter 2013 advertising campaign.
Toiletpaper’s visuals for Kenzo provided the decor, with blown-up t-shirts and poster-covered walls serving as an impromptu backdrop for photocalls by our guests, among them bloggers Cindiddy, Denise Lai and Janice Lee, and Hong Kong fashion scene figureheads Kevin Poon, Kat Yeung and Faye Tsui.
The dinner tables decorations were inspired by the themes from our collection, with placemats and light holders bedecked in Lotus Eye, Flying Tiger and Cloud prints. All-star chef May Chow created a tasting menu of the finest in contemporary Chinese cuisine which included his specialty Bao, a burger with a Chinese bun twist.
Our guests wasted no time in instagramming their burgers garnished with Ks and eyes for the occasion! A rousing post-dinner performance by percussionists Drumcat –probably the world’s only foxy female Korean drummer outfit complete with leather boots and salsa moves– brought the evening to an end with a bang!
Bus Attack! Our KENZO x Toilet Paper campaign is all over Paris for fashion week!
KENZO N°1 IN THE B.O.F TOP 10 BEST CAMPAIGNS OF THE SEASON!
About our campaign by TOILETPAPER, they said: "Kenzo’s signature quirk was on show in its technicolour, pop art- and surrealism-inspired Autumn/Winter campaign, starring model Sean O’Pry and Academy Award-nominated Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi. Produced by Pierpaolo Ferrari, Maurizio Cattelan and Micol Talso of provocative art magazine Toilet Paper, Kenzo sent its miniaturised hero and heroine on multiple adventures. In a standout shot, the two are pinned to a dissection table alongside other pop-off-the-page bright beetles and butterflies, wearing all-over cloud and eyeball print coats to bold, graphic effect".
