KENZO – LA COLLECTION MEMENTO N.2 BRITNEY SPEARS BY PETER LINDBERGH
KENZO’s La Collection Memento delves into the house’s rich history and storied archives. Creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon treat the vaults like a jumping off point – finding the strands, ideas, and ingenuity that particularly interest them and then rework, reinvent and revitalize. The result is something completely new with a reverent grasp on the codes of label founder Kenzo Takada. A nod at the past while looking forward to a bright future.
La Collection Memento N°2 focuses heavily on denim and was inspired by the 1986 Paris runway debut of KENZO Jeans. But a more esoteric theme is “Icons”. The KENZO motifs (the tiger, The Great Wave of Kanagawa) are all featured heavily, as well as (for the advertising) Britney Spears.
