The fashion house Kenzo recently introduced its cruise collection 2015/2016; with the brand’s aquatic inspirations mix graphic influences for an explosive show.
The aquatic world according to Kenzo
Whilst Kenzo recently presented No Fish No Nothing, a capsule collection affirming the brand’s engagement in the protection of sea creatures, the creator was once again inspired by this cause for his 2015/2016 collection.
This time, the fashion designer preferred geometrical forms to aquatic themed prints, but nonetheless representative of the aquatic world. The famous stripes of the sailor shirt were roughly enlarged but not without style, revisiting nautical clothes.
During Kenzo’s latest fashion show, white and blue, two colours at the heart of the nautical style, were at the forefront and combined with bright and colourful materials in a wisely orchestrated dance.
Surprising and far from Chanel and Ralph Lauren’s cruise collections of retro inspirations, Kenzo’s collection breaks the usual fashion codes.

Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, Kenzo’s artistic directors, introduced their new cruise collection within the World Trade Centre, in the heart of Manhattan. A number of mirrors were set up on either side of the catwalk to appreciate the details of each piece. 3D images of the buildings were projected on a screen, for a dynamic and contemporary atmosphere.
In this futuristic and extravagant decor, models displayed creations of geometrical forms, successfully bringing out the female silhouette. The large sleeves mix with flare pants, whilst jewels and accessories enhance each outfit.
Extravagant, audacious but always sophisticated, the pieces of Kenzo’s cruise collection should be available in the brand’s boutiques in the next few months.
