Following a teaser announcing a highly anticipated collaboration between H&M and Parisian label Kenzo, the dynamic duo has released three looks from the collection. Building on values of Kenzo collections of the 1970s — individuality and inclusivity, creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon decided to go with young artists, creatives and activists, all of whom will be ambassadors of Kenzo x H&M.
The quad squad of Kenzo x H&M consists of Amy Sall, student and activist based in New York, as well as, founder of SUNU: Journal of African Affairs, Critical Thought + Aesthetics; Juliana Huxtable, artist, poet, and DJ also based in the Big Apple;Isamaya Ffrench, London-based make-up artist and one part of international performance group Theo Adams Company; and Oko Ebombo, frontman of the band 19 and performance artist based in Paris.
Featuring pieces reminiscent of the eighties, the line packs energy, spirit and exuberance — all defining traits of the trailblazing fashion house. Expect clashing prints, loud colours and head-turning apparel that fall right in tandem with the Kenzo aesthetic. Get ready, because lines are about to form.
