The Kenzo spring/summer 2015 collection opened the sixth day of Paris Fashion Week spring 2015 with a fresh modern style bearing futuristic motifs and the traditional Japanese influence that has always defined the luxury French fashion house. For their new collection, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim had used a fabulous mix of fabrics and textures, unveiling a collection that meets all the style demands of cosmopolitan fashionisers with a good taste in fashion. The interesting way of presentation secured the ultimate success of the newest Kenzo collection. The designers had chosen a skatepark on the outskirts of Paris as the perfect destination for showing their spring 2015 designs, with huge 3D screens used on the backdrop of the unique catwalk.
Minimalist, sporty, sleek and modern, the Kenzo spring/summer 2015 collection is flooded with utterly wearable and cool clothing pieces that can guarantee your show-stopping looks in the coming spring. Mixing clean, graphic lines with slouchy oversized shapes, the Kenzo designers managed to present a powerful collection that shows a romantic story of textures, colors and styles. Overall, the color palette was quite modest and versatile, featuring lots of denim blues, navy blues, whites, blacks and some touches of dusty pink. The majority of the looks presented were monochrome, placing the focus on the creative design details and shapes and looking super-modern and cool. However, we also spotted some abstract graphic patterns, which never looked overwhelming and stayed true to the overall simplistic philosophy of the collection.
Although the Kenzo spring/summer 2015 collection was apparently sporty, it never looked overly casual, as those sleek lines and perfect tailoring added a big dose of elegance and chic to those slouchy pieces. The pants were uber wide-legged, quite resembling maxi skirts, the blazers, jackets and shirts were oversized and bulky, and we hardly saw pieces that were hugging the models’ figures. Easy-breezy, these clothing pieces lay the focus on texture and comfort, still managing to look maximum spectacular and elegant.
An inclination towards denim pieces was felt from the beginning of the show, as we started to see those oversized denim shirts, the denim skirt cut with a front slit or the super wide-legged denim pants matched with a zip-up black jacket. Even if we didn’t see denim pieces, we saw lots of denim blues not only on the long striped shirts, below-the-knee skirts and wide-legged pants, but also the stunning footwear and even the chunky sunglasses options.
Besides denim, we also saw a lovely play with silk and knitwear for a couple of stylish separates focused on the mix of blue shades. There were also lovely tailored designs with origami cuts, floor-length dresses and crop tops, full skirt options and fitted ankle-length dress designs. We saw also a beautiful interpretation of mesh, put in various sizes and colors and always looking chic.
While every single piece presented in the Kenzo spring/summer 2015 collection was spectacular in itself, there we surely saw a cute iconic Kenzo sweatshirt with a fun print, which is surely going to become the coming season’s It item among It girls. Generally, you’ll see lots of Kenzo designs in the streets throughout the new warm season, as those are powerful tools for making a big fashion statement!
