After months of speculation and teasing the wait is over because the complete Kenzo x H&M look book has finally been unveiled.
Until now we’ve only had a few sneak peeks at the forthcoming collection via Jean-Paul Goude’s campaign starring Chance the Rapper, Iman and Suboi but now we get to see it in all its statement-making glory.
Ahead of its launch in-store and online on November 3rd, the lookbook showcases a pattern-heavy, colourful collection with a cast of creative ambassadors; a mix almost as eclectic as the clothes themselves.
Wearing the bold and fashion-forward pieces are writer and activist Amy Sall, photographer Youngjun Koo, artist and DJ Juliana Huxtable, musician and performance artist Oko Ebombo, fashion editor Harriet Verney, makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench, artist Ingrid, musician Anna of the North, model and rapper Le1f, and models Mae Lapres, Hao Liu, Selena Forrest, Tom Gaskin, Julia Banas and Pierre Painchaud.
So far we have been privy to the fact that this collection would be fierce but these images allow us to see each product up close and personal.
Just in time for the winter chill is an army of cold-weather garms from shearling jackets to chunky knits and scarves, but there are plenty of transitional separates in there too; the floral ruffle Bardot top and structured folkloric dresses are striking.
The collection also includes a wide range of accessories; elbow-length gloves, flat brim baseball caps, slip-slops, ankle boots, sunglasses and shopping bags emblazoned with Kenzo branding. Of course, it doesn’t really matter which piece you score be; whether it’s a cross body bag or a full-length maxi, almost everything is swathed in technicolour animal print.
The Kenzo X H&M collection lands in 250 selected H&M stores worldwide, as well as online, from November 3rd 2016.Reuse content
