Kenzo is the
Guest Designer of
Pitti Uomo 83
Kenzo will be the Menswear Guest Designer at the next edition of Pitti Uomo, with a special event taking place in Florence on Thursday January 10th, 2013.
“’Kenzo is one of the most interesting phenomena of recent seasons’, says Lapo Cianchi, the Pitti Immagine Communications and Events Director, ‘and, to be frank, one of the most amusing. The advent of Humberto Leon and Carol Lim has produced a radical turnaround in just one year. The founder’s legacy is the inspiring essence rather than a model to reproduce. The exoticism of the early collections (such as the anti-naturalistic and symbolic jungle à la Henri Rousseau) has a powerful and liberating effect, the entire design conveys dynamism and energy. These two designers know their customers, they know how to create immediate and special things and how to build a world around their work. It is a democratic, attractive world.’”
"’Florence is an amazing canvas for Kenzo”, state the designers, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim. “Conceiving a dynamic presentation for our next men's collection amongst this vibrant yet antique urban setting is a thrilling opportunity that will allow us to explore yet another undiscovered aspect of Kenzo".
