With The Unique And Genius Eye Of Jean-Paul Goude

Due out in July’s L’uomo Vogue issue in tandem with Pitti Uomo, Kenzo’s Fall Winter campaign will definitely delight and satisfy.  Through the extraordinaire creative lens of Jean-Paul Goude, a lifelong favorite of Kenzo’s creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim (also the masterminds behind Opening Ceremony), Goude managed to create an image with unisex appeal as seen above.  Leon told WWD, “The idea that this image can work for both men’s and women’s magazines, depending on how you reverse it, was a very interesting take from his part on our collection.” 

With Kenzo being part of the Seventies era, Goude seemed to be the best man for the job to reinterpret that era with contemporary nuance.  A longtime collaborator with model/singer Grace Jones, responsible for this infamous image,  Goude’s talents never

cease to amaze.  With over thirty years of incredible projects including photography, graphic design, video, film and poster design, starting in Sixties advertising then with Esquire magazine in the Seventies styling such iconic images as this,
