RESORT COLLECTION SPRING/SUMMER 2014
Recalling Carol Lim & Humberto Leon's days of youth, the KENZO resort collection for 2014 is an ode to their home state of California.
A bright and vitalized collection incorporating elements from music, nature and art, we are invited to wander nonchalantly through the relaxed and carefree life of a sunkissed, sunshine state citizen.
Tailoring verges on the masculine by playing with proportions and matching cropped, high waisted carrot trousers and shorts with cropped jackets in graphic bi-color prints, "wet feeling" cotton polins evoke scuba diving and painted Japanese denim and spongey jersey demonstrate KENZO's affinity for fabric development.
Oversized dresses in chintzy cotton and garments in 3-D honeycomb fabrics add structural volume.
The collection is punctuated by fresh, cool summer colors of bubblegum, cement grey, peach and pool blue and prints of hand painted palm trees and painters flowers.
