Kenzo Aw2016/17 Women Collection approaches life with nonchalant conviction. She tackles every adventure with an open mind and with respect for where she has previously tread.

Sailor moon’s confidence and quintessentially feminine approach to dressing empowers us. Empire waists lead the silhouette and offer construction to outerwear, shirts and dresses.
At the collection’s core you'll find the duffle coat. Traditionally a classically functional garment, they have deconstructed and exaggerated its proportions and translated its structure and composition for trousers, dresses and skirts.
Toggle detailing appears throughout. They have reworked archive Kenzo floral (iris and dandelions) and classic Kenzo tiger prints and accompanied them with psychedelic checks.
Colors of navy, rust, lavender and ‘uniform’ gray swathe fabrics of flannel, satin, velvet, faux
astrakhan, corduroy and vinyl.
Drippy floral bracelets and rings mingle with Japanese schoolgirl satchels and a spectrum of rizo handbags.
Chelsea boots and sling-back pumps walk with centralized kitten heels and feature hand-painted florals.
