Kenzo Catwalk Fashion Show Paris Menswear SS2014
The designers of Kenzo celebrated beach culture with loose cuts and hand-drawn prints including wave motifs and graffiti-style lettering. Models descended into the ring of the wooden venue from alcoves set high in the rafters, as Mike D of the Beastie Boys spun a soundtrack.
Anoraks and shirts with a contrasting stripe running across the chest or sleeve recalled the graphic simplicity of surf wear, while a boxy white sweatshirt with raw edges — the brand’s ubiquitous embroidered tiger head now replaced by a rolling wave — was slit at the sides for extra ease.
Roomy pants were either cropped above the ankle, or slit to pool over shoes.
