On Tuesday night Antonio Marras not only presented a new summer collection for Kenzo, but also celebrated the brand’s 40th anniversary. Though he’s only been designer at Kenzo for six years he had the honor to design a special collection of pieces from the label’s archive.

The pieces had influences from Japan (Kenzo’s origins) as well as Sardinia (Marras’ origins) in them, which combined surprisingly well. There were kimono’s and floor sweeping dresses, floral prints and sequins

While the spring/summer collection had mostly light colors and pastels in it, the finale was super bright. Kenzo stretched out the models’ figures by putting them on high shoes and giving hem all sorts of head pieces. The outfits were a combination of layers of Kenzo’s signature color prints.

While the circular stage at Cirque d’Hiver turned around everyone in the audience could get a good look at the forty models. It created the most beautiful image. On to the next forty years!
