Photography by Vicky King
In a utopian land, nomads have traversed the globe over to reach a spiritual communion, both liberating and mysterious. For KENZO’s Summer 2019 editorial, photographer Vicki King has envisaged a beautiful new world in a dream-like state. UTOPIA IS POSSIBLE is an open invitation to all walks of people, to create a new home unlike anything we’ve experienced before. Come one, come all - and embrace our vision of the future.
The initiation ceremony commences, a spiritual hallucination that unifies our growing collective in deep transcendence. This is the beginning, the start of a new generation - a ritual has been cast and a beautiful trance befalls us.
A long, hazy journey to paradise, the pilgrimage to find positive enlightenment and freedom is finally reached. Unifying their vivacious energy, a new home is built under the sun. Brought together by peaceful wanderlust, an idyllic future is possible.
A circle of fire, flaming in the desert is lit up in celebration of harmony, optimism and community. Arising from the embers is the Phoenix, the mythological bird - who in death bursts into flames, and is reborn once again from the ashes.
