Re-imagining Kenzo

those rad gals from Honestly… WTF, Erica and Lauren, asked me to do a few guest posts for them over the next couple of weeks. here’s the first – Re-imagining Kenzo.

One of my favourite shows from the recent Spring 2012 collections was the “new” Kenzo – which was recently taken over by creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the geniuses behind Opening Ceremony. Which, of course, explains why there’s a certain wacky & fun edge to the all the pieces. I couldn’t help but feel that the setting for these knock-out outfits was slightly bland, so I decided to re-imagine some of my favourite looks in decidedly different scenery…

paintings from top to bottom: Isaac Grünewald – The Garden Path, Axel Kargel – The Road; Sven Westman – Scenery In The South of France, Hilding Linnqvist – The Terrace, Torsten Jovinge – The Monastery, Menton, Waldemar Lorentzon – Boats; painting images courtesy of Bukowskis; runway images courtesy of Vogue.

please note that i have no affiliation with Kenzo and do not own the rights to their images or the paintings used here. this is just for fun and should not be published in any official publications or magazines, please!

    I did hair backstage at Kenzo for this collection and would have never imagined somebody doing something so beautiful with images from the collection. I’m sure the designers would love this as well. Can’t wait to see your future posts!

    Your matching of artwork with fashion/movies is always so genius! I love these combinations– you must have such an extensive knowledge of paintings to draw such perfect pairings. And the Kenzo collection is awesome, of course.

    This is a stunning collage of fashion and art. I would love to see you do more of this. I’m a painter and I love how you combined the two aesthetics. Make sure you trademark this OUT LOUD, because some fashion designer from some website or magazine is going to steal your idea. (Why wouldn’t they? It’s brilliant)

    This is so, so brilliant!! I love it! My favourite one is the third one– the model fits perfectly with the painting :) Love this post, love this blog :) Thank you so much for doing this blog; it’s my now my favorite blog <3
