Kenzo Fall 2012 Runway Review

Opening Ceremony's Humberto Leon and Carol Lim continue to prove they’re up for the design challenge of helming Kenzo with their Fall 2012 collection – and not only because Karlie Kloss opened via an escalator leading the way for a model choreography that was among the season's best.

The Fall 2012 collection was pattern heavy, inspired by home décor, which was most evident in the weighty fabrics and the repeated black and white striped, geometric, and zigzag prints that brought wallpaper to mind. Animal heads topped sweaters, and bright pops of red, blue, and green were shown alongside the predominantly black and rusty hued looks. The silhouettes were mainly fitted, contrary to much of what we’ve seen on the Paris runways thus far.
