One of the most influential inspirations for KENZO is cinema. The plethora of characters and personalities that can be evoked, portrayed and ultimately retained in their psyche is fascinating to them.
For Fall-Winter 2018 KENZO presented a collection celebrating the various on-screen strong men who have engrossed or enthralled them with their style and spirit.
The men's collection fuses the heritage and modern by twisting classics and clashing prints and colors. A boxy silhouette pervades and skinny pants run the gamut of fabrics. Waxed cotton trenches appear in traditional colors and a pop turquoise. Reflective flock print fabrics are used on technical nylon vests or trousers.
Zip-up nylon blousons with floral jacquards partner with heavy wool molleton double faced duffels. Typical bomber jackets are lengthened and leather pieces appear in the shape of beaten up cardigans. Iridescent tailoring bursts through an already vivid color palette.
