Carol Lim & Humberto Leon, creative directors of KENZO, are happy to present the Maison’s first eyewear collection made in collaboration with LVMH eyewear expert Thélios.
The dedicated accompanying eyewear campaign echoes the house’s KENZOTOPIA theme for the Spring/Summer season. Shot by Nick Harwood the images and video depict true idyllic paradise, as bright and colourful as the collection embodies. A utopia for a community who celebrate optimism and unity.
For the new collection, bowing for Spring/Summer 2019, the American-duo looked towards the high energy and fun roots of the near 50-year-old Maison. The new and varying styles blend that Parisian confidence and California cool that KENZO has come to represent since their appointment. The vibrant colors of the sunglasses echo the fluorescent check suits and patterned dresses from the houses SS19 silhouettes. Shaking up the codes of KENZO, this very diverse first release plays with distinctive shapes and futuristic influences. The result reflects KENZO’s vibrant personality: both unexpected and eclectic.
