Kenzo Unveils SS18 Collection Using Asian Supermodels

By David Joshua

Fashion label Kenzo, casts 83 leading Asian models hailing from Japan, China, and Korea, for its spring summer 2018 collection. Inspired by Japanese musician Ryuichi Sakamoto and supermodel Sayoko Yamaguchi, Kenzo’s creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon channeled the label’s namesake designer Kenzo Takada with their combined menswear and womenswear show titled “The Red String of Fate.”The kenzo brand may be French but it was originally founded by Japanese designer Kenzo Takada back in the 70s.”We celebrate two muses, one who represents the modern view of the house and one from its past,” designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon wrote in the show notes of the inspirations.“For both collections we aim to capture the duality of the two figures, we look to the era when they both ruled two distant continents; to Ryuichi’s personal flair when questioning the norm, and to Sayoko’s ability to mix patterns, prints, silhouettes, and colours.” Photo Credit: Kenzo
