Kenzo

Kenzo spring summer 2012 line. Photographed by Erik Madigan Heck in full color saturation. Kenzo in all respect was another parisian fashion house, once grand but no longer. This however changed with the new and familiar creative directors HUMBERTO LEON AND CAROL LIM. The duo are the founders of Opening Ceremony International.  Opening Ceremony started in 2002  and has risen to cult status ever since.  Leon and Lim, to some would seem an odd choice given they aren't french and have never run a fashion house before. The Kenzo collection for s/s 2012 gave tangible evidence that Leon and Lim are very capable. The layered windbreakers paired with cinched and roped heels alone left the thought - "You, had me at hello." Congrats, to the new house of Kenzo and the creative foresight in the hiring Leon and Lim.
