Fashion Flashback: Kenzo Pre-Fall 2012

A fun and colorful dress from the Kenzo Pre-Fall 2012 collection.

"Kenzo was always about color and pattern and having fun — 

that’s why we are so happy to start with a spring/summer collection." 
- Humberto Leon, Co-Creative Director, Kenzo

The Kenzo Pre-Fall 2012 collection is bold, colorful and full of great prints that stay true to its '70s roots and multi-cultural influences, from East to West.  The Parisian brand was founded by Japanese fashion designer Kenzo Takada, who left Japan for Paris in 1964 and established the company in 1970 and opened his first shop, Jungle Jap.  It has gained a fresh perspective from its newly-appointed creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim (founders of Opening Ceremony).  Said Lim on the Kenzo Web site: "We're honored to take on this next chapter of the brand and infuse it with youthfulness, vibrancy and imagination."

Below are a mix of Kenzo designs from the '70s and '80s, as well as a few of my favorite pieces from 2012 (you can view the full collection here.)
