As with each La Collection Memento, we have selected to reinvigorate a different element from the archives of the time of our house’s founder Kenzo Takada. This time we have decided to put the spotlight on some of the house’s most vivid and diverse prints and graphics. We celebrate Kenzo Takada’s fun and whimsical side - his consistent ability to bring a tongue and cheek attitude to the fashion world, and most importantly his love for food and entertaining.
To best convey the emotions of La Collection Memento N°4, we called upon photographer Campbell Addy to capture the energy and emblematic youth of Parisian artists and creators. Each member of the cast has their own relationship to the City of Lights. More importantly they hold individual points of view when it comes to interpersonal relationships, fashion culture and how they like to dress. They were shot in a surreal, oversized food market, complete with baskets, ‘knot’ bags and giant tomatoes.
