Kenzo and H&M Collaboration 2016
Yesterday the Kenzo x H&M show was held at Pier 36 in New York (Creative Director: Jean-Paul Goude/Music Director: Sam Spiegel/Choreography: Ryan Heffington) We thought it was a blast! We don’t agree much with the mass produced garments and policy sold by H&M; but we do hope the people in the streets, in 250 cities worldwide, will turn brighter and more pretty with this collection, only if it was for one season…….
From the H&M Press office:
The KENZO x H&M collection will be available in over 250 H&M stores worldwide, as well as online, from November 3.” “Jean-Paul Goude directs a spectacular fashion show in New York to celebrate the launch of KENZO x H&M
Last night at Pier 36 in New York, KENZO x H&M made its runway debut with a spectacular show directed by fashion legend Jean-Paul Goude. Guests were invited to experience the uniquely vibrant and playful energy of the KENZO x H&M collection designed by KENZO Creative Directors, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon.
To the rhythm of a customized remix of “Express Yourself” by Sam Spiegel, dancers, beatboxers, whistlers and musicians came together to celebrate the beauty and power of individual expression. Through a unique choreography created by KENZO collaborator, Ryan Heffington the show cast presented the KENZO x H&M collection to an audience who experienced an inferno of playfulness, bold prints and vivid colours. As the show finished the celebration continued with a performance by rapper and surprise guest Ice Cube.
“Tonight was a celebration of everything we love about KENZO x H&M – it was a fun, vibrant and unexpected celebratory mix of different worlds coming together. It was a show we will never forget,” says Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, Creative Directors of KENZO.
“The launch of KENZO x H&M was truly spectacular. It was amazing to see the collection come to life with all its incredible print, colour and energy. It was such an honor to have Jean-Paul Goude direct the show and he captured the mood perfectly,” says Ann-Sofie Johansson, Creative Advisor at H&M.”
