Kenzo RTW Fall 2015

Humberto Leon and Carol Lim said their fall collection was inspired by the forest, though ironically, the show was held in a barren hangar on the outskirts of Paris.

Humberto Leon and Carol Lim said their fall collection was inspired by the forest, though ironically, the show was held in a barren hangar on the outskirts of Paris. Then again, survival instincts are as vital in the city as they are out in the wild.

 
Models donned protective ponchos and capes in shadowy blue, deep purple and forest green — some in camouflage-style floral patterns spliced with contrasting stripes. Oversize shearling jackets were slung over pleated chiffon dresses in a savvy nod to the volatile climate that has wrong-footed retailers in recent seasons. “I feel like the brand has always kind of celebrated this idea of nature and city, even in Kenzo Takada’s days,” Leon said backstage. “You’ll see florals and petals and a lot of the prints almost come from this idea that the girls are friends with nature and they can communicate with nature.”

 
Continuing their recent evolution away from tricky constructions and toward a more fluid approach, the duo worked two main silhouettes: top-heavy layers over ample skirts and less-cluttered looks that paired structured jackets or draped jerseys with skirts and pants in lush satin, georgette or fil coupé, reminiscent of kimono fabrics.

 
The show was staged against a constantly evolving backdrop of seven large blocks that glided over the catwalk as if guided by artificial intelligence. While visually intriguing, it distracted from the clothes a bit and raised some interesting questions about how nature worship squares with our collective obsession with technology.
