ABOVE THE SKY AND BEYOND
On the road with Carol and Humberto, this film gives you a complete view of the build up to the Fall Winter 2013 menswear show.
From London to Paris. From Milan to Florence. Through the choice of looks, castings and fittings. Through the stressful moments, the doubts and the fun.
Above the sky and beyond!
A film by Raphaël Gianelli Meriano
Production: Juliette Lambert for Slowdance

THE JUNGLE OF THE SKY
A CELESTIAL THEME PERVADES THE PRINTS: DAYTIME AND NIGHTTIME CLOUDS, LIGHTNING BOLTS, RAINDROPS AND STARS APPEAR THROUGHOUT THE COLLECTION. DOUBLE-BREASTED ‘PILOT’ COATS AND CABANS CREATE A DISTINGUISHED MASCULINE FIGURE, WHILE TROUSERS ARE SKINNY AND HAVE AN EFFECT OF PARACHUTE FABRICS IN NYLON.
VOLUMINOUS JACKETS, EVOKING THE IMAGINED TOUCH OF CUMULUS CLOUDS ARE PAIRED WITH TAILORED PANTS FOR A SILHOUETTE THAT FLOATS ON THE BODY YET IS GROUNDED BY ELEGANT STRUCTURE.
THE SILHOUETTE OF AN ASIAN WARRIOR, A RECURRENT FIGURE IN MYTHICAL BATTLES, IS INTRODUCED THROUGH THE ABSENCE OF LAPELS ON WRAPPED COATS AND JACKETS.
THE KENZO TIGER IS REINCARNATED AS A DOUBLE-HEADED FLYING CREATURE AND IS JOINED BY DRAGONS AND SERPENTS, WHO POPULATE THE SKY JUNGLE.
MOLESKIN, CHEVRON, GABARDINE, FELTED JACQUARDS, AND MULTICOLORED TWEEDS ELEVATE THE NONCHALANT YET CONTROLLED MASCULINE JACKETS.
THE PATCHWORK ON BOOTS AND DRESS SHOES IS INSPIRED BY THE GRAPHIC LINES OF AIRPLANES. AN OBSERVATION ON PILOTS SOARING THROUGH THE AIR, RIDING THE SKY, MASTERS OF THE CLOUDS.
KENZO CONTINUES ITS COLLABORATION WITH DELFINA DELETTREZ AND INTRODUCES MENS JEWELRY IN THE MAIN THEMES OF THE COLLECTION.
LIGHTNING BOLT TIE PINS AND FASTENERS ADORN THE SHIRTS AND TIES AND COMPLEMENT THE METAL HANDKERCHIEFS TUCKED AWAY IN THE BREAST POCKET OF THE ELEGANT COATS.
KENZO PARTNERS WITH BOBLBEE, A BAG COMPANY THAT SPECIALIZES IN BACKPACKS AND CROSSBODY BAGS WITH HARD SHELLS MADE FOR PROTECTING YOUR POSSESSIONS ON ANY JOURNEY. FOR THE RUNWAY COLLECTION, KENZO AND BOBLBEE CREATED LAPTOP CASES, POUCHES, AND BACKPACKS THAT FEATURE THE UNIQUE PRINTS OF THE COLLECTION.
