Kenzo Snow Bird premiere
February 3rd 2016, Hollywood, CALIFORNIA
Outfit by Kenzo, tights by Gerbe
On Tuesday night the L.A fashion crowd gathered to preview the latest project by Kenzo. The brand released a 12 minute short film featuring model Abbey Lee Kershaw wearing their Spring Summer ’16 ready-to-wear collection. A shot-on-iPhone film by Sean Baker, the focus lies on the newest Kenzo line. The story takes you to a dessert where a girl that just baked a cake walks around her trailer-neighborhood offering them to try it. As she goes sharing her gigantic cake, the members of this little story give thier opinion about the flavor of the cake. There is an air of reality mixed with the power of perception from each member. In the end she arrives to the trailer of her loved one, and when she blows the candles, beautiful Abbey transforms into a middle aged woman, while the man in front of her turns into a young handsome boy. It all comes down to wishful thinking.
I was pleased to join the Kenzo team at this event and I am already looking forward to their next show in Paris, to see the continuation of a story with a blurred line between dreams and reality.
