Discover Nigo’s second collection for KENZO presented during the recently wrapped up Paris Fashion Week. The Spring Summer 2023 show expands and refines the universe established with his last season’s debut. Named “Kenzo Brand Boom”, the collection takes the inspiration from the designer’s own discovery of Kenzo, as well as the DC Brand Boom of 1980s’ Japan.
SPRING SUMMER 2023 COLLECTIONS
Inspired by the attitude of Kenzo Takada – who steadily developed his ideas from season to season – Nigo hones the codes of the real-towear philosophy behind his practice at the Maison and creates a continuity that builds on the ethos and youth-driven sensibility of his inaugural show. Underpinned by silhouettes and motifs from the archive, the collection de- and reconstructs the iconography of Kenzo Takada through a uniquely Japanese view of Paris shared by the founder and his heir. – from Kenzo.
