H&M is always snatching coins every November with their amazing designer collabs. From Balmain, Alexander Wang, and most recently Kenzo.These innovative partnerships give the financially challenged and 'balling on a budget' types like myself a chance to be street style fabulous within our means. I am also thankful that Kim Kardashian doesn't wear Kenzo because I would have never had a chance to snatch a piece from the collection *insert dry laughter here.
Many are unfamiliar with the Kenzo brand so allow me to share some brief history.'Kenzo Takada founded the fashion house in 1970.He moved from him native Japan to the fashion capital Paris, France where he combined aspects from his Japanese heritage with high end European structure to create the legendary Kenzo brand. His first boutique, 'Jungle Jap' focused more on décor with a jungle inspiration/motif.By the early 80's he began creating women's wear and by the mid to late 80's the men's and kid's wear were added. Now under the creative direction of Carol Lim and Humberto Leon the brand has really sparked a chord with many style bloggers and celebrities alike (Wikepedia,2016).' Heavily saturated graphic pieces in street style silhouettes boasting jungle infused designs are what has really been capturing the stylish youth of Paris. The Kenzo explosion has finally hit the U.S. and now all of us cool kids can say 'Yea, I heard of Kenzo a few years ago' can now smugly prance in the latest offerings from the brand (aka, me).There are still a few items left if you are up the splurge shop here.
