A 360-degree tour of the shows, from the invitations to backstage reports, grooming trends and venue highlights
Mood board: ‘UFOs are coming back’. Carol Lim and Humberto Leon scrawled this hopeful message down a safety orange cape, its symbolic typeface echoed throughout in the alien heraldry splashed across a collection dedicated to a youth tribe of urban, bohemian heroes. To the sounds of Saint Etienne, Kenzo’s boys marched snugly past in striped ombré knits layered with a khaki-tinged gamut of hooded, patch-pocket outerwear.
Scene setting: Kenzo invited guests to the still-unfinished Philharmonie de Paris, designed by Jean Nouvel. The models paraded around the glass-clad corridors of the symphonic concert hall, as guests faced the Parisian skyline sat on bright custom-built stools and benches.
Finishing touches: Kenzo has tended towards a Buffalo reference in the shoe department before, and this season’s lace-ups and chunky boots were an ingenious jigsaw puzzle of coloured leathers patch-worked together with giant lacing or contoured leather strips.Photography: Jason Lloyd-Evans
