THE KENZO CHINESE NEW YEAR COLLECTION

17 January 2022

The tiger motif is a cornerstone in the design language of Kenzo, something the label celebrates with the Year of the Tiger collection.

When Kenzo was founded in 1970, the label served as a reflection of Kenzo Takada's non-conformist vision — garments constructed with a liberal use of colours, prints and experimentation. That exuberant approach to clothing is something that remains as potent today, with a carefree and avant-garde spirit running throughout each collection.

Amongst all of the label’s playful motifs and patterns, there is one that represents a fundamental cornerstone of the label: the tiger. This season, the label celebrates those symbolic ties to the animal, honouring the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Tiger.

The collection includes an array of garments, ranging from outerwear to accessories, with each one transformed to reflect the label's bold aesthetic and the collection’s theme. Shirts, for instance, are cut from silk materials to relaxed fits and covered in traditional patterns and tiger motifs, while knitted jumpers are coloured in bold hues and covered in oversized graphics. Accessories, meanwhile, come in a bevy of vivid colours and feature various references to the majestic animal. The collection also includes the label’s signature logos, the tiger head graphic and crest, that’re reworked in a variety of different colours and patterns.
