Kenzo’s adoration of the works of «Le Douanier» Rousseau inspired us to create a vibrant, colorful and tapestry led collection for KENZO – La Collection Memento N°3. The importance of knitwear for the house prompted us to honor it in all its guises throughout both the men’s and women’s collections. Archival iconic KENZO striped pieces are transformed into knitted skirts and tops. Three archival striped scarves informed the bright color palette of the knits. Yellows, blues, reds and greens prevail. Henri Rousseau’s “The Dream” is recreated as tapestry jacquards for tops, dresses, shearling coats and trousers. We laud the KENZO ruffle. For women, skirts and tops in a Rousseau flower jacquard offers pops of floral power.
