Kenzo, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways... With a nod to surrealists giants such as Magritte and Dali, the Fall/Winter Kenzo campaign is at once both eye-catching and alarming. The captivating images wink to a hilarious sense of wit. Teaming with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari from art magazine Toilet Paper, the ad campaign takes on a life of it's on. The unsettling but wholly amusing photos benefit greatly from the influence of the Toilet Paper creators, whose tome features only images; no text, and no context.
Another must see element is the equally enchanting behind-the-scenes video, readily avaliable on Kenzo's YouTube channel. Rinko Kikuchi and Sean O'Pry look as though they are having a rip roaring time on set, stifling giggles while laying ever so still as specimens in a collector's case.
I was completely enamoured with the Kenzo RTW collection during the A/W 2013 shows, and this campaign reaffirmed my love. Also, who could say no to that kitten?!?
