Event Coverage: The Launch of KENZO FW14 – Hosted by The Side Talk

By Thesidetalk @thesidetalk

A few weeks ago I was approached by KENZO team in Kuwait to host their FW14 collection launch event. The preperations started almost immediately after; Save the date, event agenda, set up, and invites were sent out to around 300 of Kuwait’s bloggers, socialites, and fashion lovers. Of course, I was going to wear KENZO for the event and what’s better than Pre Fall 14! I picked up my outfit from KENZO store at The Avenues, phase two, a few days before the event, and I just loved it. Here’s an over all shot of my look, but I will be writing a detailed outfit post within couple of days.

On the event day people started arriving just on time, It was great seeing everyone so dressed up and absolutely glamorous. It was also a chance to meet some of the people I know only through social media and haven’t met in person yet. Everyone was dolled up, and dressed definitely to impress. The collection got amazing reviews, and everybody was in love with the bold colors and patters. They started shopping right then and there. The ambiance was perfectly set by DJ Nasque’s electric mixes, the ladies enjoyed the coolest personalized nail designs by Nail Station, and the crowd indulged in american-styled catering, while lots and lots of photos were being taken in the store and on the mystery photocall’s sloping floor, and uploaded live onto instagram under #KrazyforKenzo.

Now talking about the KENZO FW14 collection; It explores a world of mystery inspired by David Lynch; who has proven to be one of the most interesting and insightful directors, artists, and musicians of our time. His imagination and ingenuity can stimulate forgotten emotions through his canny use of whatever medium he chooses. The pieces have portrayed love, revenge, the strange, and the mysterious with equal candor.

The silhouettes hold contrasts in volume, and everything is amplified. Lean and tall, or high-waisted and exaggerated, the structure remains resolutely, ultra-feminine. Collars are reinterpreted, blown up, and tied around the waist as nonchalantly and intimately as the appropriation of a mans coat.

You’ll find yourself in a world of fox fur in ‘Wild Lula Lime’, ‘Laura Lilac’, and ‘Midnight Dorothy’ transform with detachable paneling. Lacquered twill jackets in flame inject fire colors to the palette. Skirts and dresses with shaved kangaroo are paired and layered with cross coats and embroidered and shredded organza. Foiled mohair grosgrain ribbons appear as belts and as inserts on trousers.

Prints this season come in wrapped versions of habitual vistas, the David Lynch herring-bone flooring and reflections of a mountain in shattered glass. A layered organza adds a 3D effect to skirts and tops. Sweaters feature high definition tryptic embroidery and metallic foiling.
