Luxury Week Day 5: Kenzo

By Butterboom Writers  /  September 1, 2008

Kenzo brings new shapes to Hong Kong for Fall.


We start the final day of the Mastercard Luxury Week Hong Kong 2008 with Kenzo. For his fall collection, designer Antonio Marras takes inspiration from the Japanese Wabi-sabi aesthetics where elaborate reinterpretation of volumes and shapes combined with a range of different materials resulted in new beautiful shapes. Drawing from the shape of the Japanese “Yukata” (a casual summer kimono dressing gown), were dramatic beautifully shaped loose fitted short dresses in wool jacquard and duchess satin.

Kenzo’s ability to re-create new original silhouettes and push the boundaries is what makes this an
exciting brand to watch. Kenzo’s Autumn Winter collection spotted bold splashes of graphic prints against anise green, yellow and autumn’s colour of black and grey. Anise green and pink is an unusual colour combination but it seems to work in Antonia Marras’s expert hand!
