Carol Lim and Humberto Leon unveil their Men & Women’s Fall-Winter 2019 Fashion Show
Kenzo turns to Humberto’s Chinese-Peruvian heritage and the Tusán people whose ancestors arrived from Guangdong province to settle in Peru in the 19th century, for their the Fall-Winter 2019 collection.
The collection features pollera skirts, now boasting drawstrings, puffer jackets, hot pink ponchos in waterproof technical fabrics, and blanket plaids as workwear shirts or sweaterdresses. The season’s standout print repurposed the bags used to import rice; pairing it with pieces in paper like leather. The same could be said of all the pieces bordered in brightly colored faux fur—floppy flats.
Check out how Kenzo uses the backdrop of crazy illustrated murals by the late artist and shaman Pablo Amaringo, paired with music that was traditional but could put you in a trance. Many of the visions were intensely saturated and collided urban with expedition elements.
