For their third men’s wear outing at Kenzo, designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim are putting a cosmic spin on the brand’s eclectic design heritage. Known for bold patterns and jungle motifs, the Parisian house’s fall 2013 collection — to be presented in a runway show at Pitti Uomo on Jan. 10 — is an “otherworldly” interpretation of those themes, according to the designers.
“There’s a bit of mysticism. It’s a very different approach to the idea of ‘jungle,’” explained Leon. “Last season, we did something very inherent to the brand but this time it’s not as literal. It’s more modern and a different interpretation of a jungle from another world.”
