Kenzo is well known for detailed patterns and prints and for next season it created spring florals in contrasting colours for an eclectic summer brights collection. For autumn/winter 2012 Kenzo played with colour blocking, while next summer’s offering took notes from the 1960s with a selection of oversized flower-print patterns in vivid shades.
High notes of turquoise blue, orange and mustard yellow were contrasted with teal and mint green, alongside light grey and beige. Shapes were loose and casual, with a selection of ankle crops mixed with short leather jackets. The oversized floral prints featured on matching bra-lets and cape-style jackets for a head-to-toe look.
Leopard-print florals continued the 1960s vibe with a variety of patterned pieces – from maxi dresses to chic nipped-waist mackintoshes – with an orange background. Simple block colour pieces were plentiful, with a selection of basic mix-and-match items for those looking for a softer summer wardrobe.
To close the show, a hint of military influence was introduced with deep-toned floral pattern panels creating an updated utilitarian look.
