Kenzo Celebrates The Work of Henri Rousseau for AW18

Bringing elements of high-art to their dedicated base of millennial luxury consumers, co-creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Kim pay homage to the art collection of Kenzo Takada for AW18.

Citing Takada's deep affinity with the work of post-impressionist painter, Henri Rousseau, this season Kenzo gives their iconic graphic identity a painterly twist by recreating a series of Rousseau's lush works as wearable works of art.

Collaborating directly with the Rousseau Foundation on the collection, Kenzo has transposed one artist's vision into their own medium for a high-brow approach to contemporary luxury.

The latest collection from Kenzo is now available at END.
