We were already pretty darn excited about H&M and Kenzo’s collaboration, but now we have our first look at the collection — and it’s better than we imagined. The key print in the line is tiger stripes, which appear on everything from rollneck tops to high-waisted leggings. There is also an oversize jacket and a parka to take you into Winter and, of course, let’s not forget the black Kenzo logo gloves and the tiger-print crossbody bag. The pieces will arrive in 250 stores worldwide and online on Nov. 3, 2016, while the full collection will debut on the catwalk. Though the runway show won’t take place until October, we can already feel the hype.
Kenzo designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon (who are also the duo behind Opening Ceremony) spoke to Vogue.com about the marriage of the two brands. “There’s a femininity, there’s fun. There’s a tactile approach to techniques and embroideries, embellishments,” Leon said.
Judging from the colorful photos ahead, we can tell the collection is full of playful and vibrant vibes. H&M’s head of design Ann-Sofie Johansson said, “Balmain was glamorous and sexy, and this is vibrant, young, and fun.” Read on to get a glimpse of the clothes and accessories. Then let your imagination of how to wear them run wild.
