H&M is teaming up with Parisian fashion house KENZO for their newest collaboration. A favorite among celebrities and fashionistas, the label is known for their creative designs and bold prints. Founded by Japanese designer Kenzo Takada, and led by the founders of Opening Ceremony Carol Lim and Humberto Leon as creative directors, this collaboration promises not to disappoint.
When speaking on the partnership in a press release Lim and Leon had this to say,
“With this collaboration with H&M we want to think big, push the boundaries and bring the new energy of KENZO to everyone around the world.”
The announcement was accompanied by a teaser posted on Instagram that features KENZO’s signature leopard print and is full of bold, colorful designs.
If you’re already bursting at the seams with excitement unfortunately the collections debut is still a few months away. There will be a runway show in October to celebrate the launch and it will be available online and at select retailers on November 3.
In the past H&M has partnered with Balmain, Versace, and Alexander Wang for their collaborative collections.
A collaboration between KENZO and H&M was bound to happen and boy are we looking forward to seeing what they come up with. Creative Advisor for H&M Ann-Sofie Johansson also shares in this excitement saying,
“We can’t wait to share the world of KENZO x H&M with everyone, with all of its creativity, fun and love of fashion”
So get ready fashionistas! You have five months to prepare for what will probably be one of H&M’s most sought after and biggest collaborations to date.
