Kenzo S/S 2017

Kenzo S/S 2017

Scene setting: Humberto Leon and Carol Lim are in a performative mood – earlier evidence of that was Spike Jonze’s Kenzo World perfume video ad – but this show also did a pretty good job of entertaining, with nude performance artist of various abilities perched around the space.

Best in show: Inspired by a 1977 show by Kenzo Takada at Studio 54, Leon and Lim took direction from the archive. The looks that referenced Antonio Lopez’ sketches, and transposed collage prints of his Polaroids were arresting.

Finishing touches: Liberally applied red eye shadow exaggerated the glamorous Studio 54 vibe even more. Oversized crystal and sequined earrings functioned as wearable disco-balls.
