KENZO FETE'S DISNEY'S JUNGLE BOOK
JUNGLE STYLE FEVER
Kenzo’s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon dipped knee-high into Disney’s archives and headed straight into the jungle for their latest capsule collection that celebrates the live-action remake of The Jungle Book. Inspired by Rudyard Kipling’s timeless novel and by Disney’s film, the film directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man), stars the voices of Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Lupita Nyong’o, Scarlett Johnsson and Idris Elba. The limited-edition men’s and women’s collection is as lush, exotic and colorful as the iconic Disney cartoon, melding archival Kenzo prints with elements culled from the drawings of the 1967 original movie. Moreover, since Kenzo’s early days, the tiger has been a staple in the house’s imagery, a similitude that fueled the hot collaboration. To wit, Shere Khan replaces the tiger on Kenzo’s signature sweatshirt, appearing in all its feline glory on intarsia knits. The selection also includes shifts, jackets, denim, sweatshirts and Tees, in cotton and silk. Join Mowgli, Baloo and the rest of the gang on this great fashion adventure.
