Kenzo Fall 2019: Ayahuasca Anyone?

House of Holland Sale

Kenzo’s Fall 2019 show conjured up the hallucinogenic effects of ayahuasca w wildly illustrated murals by the  artist and shaman Pablo Amaringo. An added burst of psychedelic color came in the form of color blocked coats and trousers, striped patterned knits and fuzzy blanket plaids.

The design duo, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon who helm the Japanese-French label Kenzo reflected on our fractured, highly-politicised age: “At a time when the movement of peoples and the spread of cross-cultural dialogue marks our daily lives more than ever, our interest in telling personal stories has never felt more appropriate,” they explained. The Tusán people from Peru whose ancestors arrived from Guangdong province in China to settle in  the 19th century provided a rich and colorful history that was woven into the clothes.
