According to VOGUE RUNWAY, the Kenzo RTW Fall show notes referenced Sailor Moon, the iconic anime character, while pledging allegiance to American pop culture, in their own colorful way. Sailor Moon’s nautical look seemed to have been deconstructed + put back together as separates if not, as one whole piece. A lot of the different dresses throughout the collection, displayed a sense of demure yet sexy sweetness, with their high collars + sometimes, delicate floral patterns. Others, however, added some edge in patent leather over a blouse with gorgeous balloon sleeves, cinched three quarters of the way.
Sailor Moon was noted in the various dresses that came down the runway, complete with ruffles + pleats. Her uniform however, was updated in several ways including making the jacket a dress, with a toggle button of sorts across the front paired with a button down shirt underneath.
And no Kenzo collection could be imagined without patterns, + as usual, there were plenty to marvel over. There were floral patterned jackets paired with patent leather cigarette pants, with moto stitching details. Other times, you would find the same style pant with top, yet this time, in a colorful zebra striped pattern. Just the same, this same pant would be paired with a different patterned top. This animal print also found its way onto boots + shoes, but more interestingly, as the lapel to a short floral patterned trench coat or a stunning bright lavender Mongolian lamb pant suit.
