Kenzo In The Skyby Eyal de Leeuw | 12.01.13
One of Pitti Uomo’s most talked about events was the impressive men’s show of Kenzo A/W13 at the Mercato Centrale di San Lorenzo. Less than a year in the helm of the Kenzo and Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have marked an important stage in following the footsteps of Mr. Kenzo. The theme was “Jungle In The Sky”, the music was by Jamie XX’s live-mix and to the hundreds of guests entering the upper level of Florence beautiful market waited a stunning visual space and a warm Kenzo wool blanket, which was so needed.
The collection was covered in cloudy patterns, shades of blueish camouflages and the models circled around the market’s main area until pausing and striking a pose.
The innovative idea of “cloud-camo” was applauded by all after the show and the guests were invited to get closer to the sculptural models and later to step down to the market and follow Humberto and Carol shopping recommendation (which were received with the blankets).
