Like Kenzo Takada before them, Carol and Humberto presented what they themselves called an “outsider’s view” on the French look for the Spring/Summer 2015 collection : 'Living between Paris and New York, we love and revere the ease and effortlessness of French dressing. And it all started for their debut collection when they played with classics of the French vestiaire but also twisted a version of the KENZO logo by adding an Eiffel Tower. A reference to the French origins of the house but also a fun allusion to their outsider's view as they say they "love excess à la Française"!

The Eiffel Tower is now an permanent piece of the collection that comes back every season but it's also the star of the Spring/Summer 2015 collection, inspired by Paris.

Like Kenzo Takada before them, Carol and Humberto worked to present what they themselves called an “outsider’s view” on the French girl's look: “Living between Paris and New York, we love and revere the ease and effortlessness of French dressing.”

Playing on Gallic staples such as the blue and white Breton striped knit, girlish chemises, refined tailoring with playful parachute-like volumes and gilded hardware in the form of medallions and chains, they aimed to ultimately pay homage to the refined signatures of the classic French woman’s wardrobe. 

Carol and Humberto added their signature contemporary and energizing twist to all: graphic shapes reflecting the precise geometry of 17th Century French gardens; cobalt blue legionnaire sandals; colour and print blocking and a giant polka dot motif with Eiffel Tower and Statue of Liberty badges scattered across it. As they put it themselves - “We love excess à la Française!”
