Kenzo Resort 2011
Quote:
PARIS, June 23, 2010

By Tim Blanks

Antonio Marras' Sardinian passion guarantees that his own collections are intense affairs, but it looks like he's having fun with his second gig at Kenzo, especially with the new Resort collection. It's a big anniversary year for the label, and Marras looked back to Kenzo Takada's earliest work almost four decades ago, when the Japanese designer was busy injecting color and spirit into the uptight Parisian fashion scene. He reworked floral foulard prints from the archives and borrowed one of Kenzo's first shapes—a shirtdress based on a kimono. That silhouette also cropped up again as a trench, and there were shades of old Japan in obi belts. But what Marras really caught beautifully was Kenzo's exuberance. The mixes of stripes and checks, the floor-sweeping sundresses, the colorful knitwear, and those spectacular summery florals made for a winning update on one of fashion's most uplifting legacies.

I find it utterly gorgeous, easily one of the highlights of the season. It's yet another brilliant collection from Antonio, it all feels perfectly fresh and summery with the typical romantic charm of him.

Plus I just love the use of prints here, they're done and mixed in such a beautiful way, especially in this look:

Absolutely delish! Love the prints, the colors, the mix and match, the styling. Gorgeous styling as usual at Kenzo.

I LOVE Marais, though I usually wear his clothes. There's nothing but respect from me, as he is one of the few authentic designers left with his own voice, and impeccable skills.
I'd starve to get that kimono coat !

this is the marras i wanted to see in kenzo menswear: this color, these patterns, and the elegant way he mixes them all remains the best part of his legacy at the house of kenzo.
