Season's Round Up # 75: KENZO FALL-WINTER 2013

Kenzo in the recent 2 years has amassed enough fashion fans that it is now being dubbed by Vogue as the "centre of cool" under the leadership of Carol Lim and Humberto Leon. The secret behind their success is in their amazing ability to tap and feed into pop culture, yet in a way that is relevant. They craft essential fashion pieces yet in an edgy way.

For FW2013 we see the label churning out hot hot items seemingly borne out of a volcanic explosion - and don't get me wrong, I think it's simply amazing! Gold and red dominated the runway and it is a collection that is young and hip in it's aesthetic - cool and edgy that is oh so Kenzo.

Season's Round Up # 47: KENZO SPRING-SUMMER 2013

Kenzo, one of the hippest labels to date has got their groove on yet again. A once floundering brand, they’ve definitely found their life back and they’re bringing the F-U-N in fashion once again. Their SS2013 Women’s RTW Line is nothing short of spectacularly fun and vibrant! The pieces are wearable and for sure, will incite lust in every fasioneista.

Kingdom animalia seemed to be an inspiration, seeing a runway that is seemingly from right here in our own backyard in Asia. A slew of animal inspired prints, notable of which would be the tiger sweaters cements the deal. Khaki safari suits, trench coats and dresses were out and abound as well. I can seriously see fashion’s elite trotting their wares next season and I’m definitely in deep contemplation if I’ll be strutting my butt in one of them next season.

a.Fasione's Shopping Round Up # 20: KENZO x VANS COLLECTION

I received a call from the Kenzo boutique here in Singapore to let me know that the Vans by Kenzo collection is now available in stores. Pieces are limited, with quite a few designs. Retailing for SGD280 here, it's a wee bit expensive compared to purchasing it from the US where it's retailing at about USD120. Well, fine, price here is a far cry. But if you're desperate to have one from the collection then I guess you wouldn't mind the price diff since it's basically sold out everywhere else. Anyway, above are the selection for ladies and I am just adoring the yellow colored ones. I was especially keen on the yellow striped one and unfortunately [or fortunately enough in my case], they're biggest size ran a wee bit too small for me. The ones below would be the male selection. Not that much of a fan myself apart from the purple hued one with grids, which I thought was interesting.

So which one's your pick?
