Kenzo Men’s Fall 2023 Paris

The Fall-Winter 2023 collection is simultaneously an exploration of Nigo’s longstanding fascination with the interaction between British, American and Japanese street culture.

The formative elements are infused with the joie de vivre of Kenzo Takada’s work in the 1980s and underpinned by the conversation between traditional Japanese construction and authentic American workwear.

THE WHITE ALBUM by the Beatles. The spirit of the Fall-Winter 2023 collection evolves into the Great British attire influences which inevitably echoes the legacy of Dame Vivienne Westwood, whose influence has been a constant in his career. 

Through his Eastern/Western lens, Artistic Director @nigo reworks a number of archival prints for the collection. Then the SASHIKO. This japanese quilting technique, also known as rice-grain fabric is engrained in the KENZO archives.

For the KENZO Fall-Winter 2023 Women’s and Men’s Show, Artistic Director Nigo elaborates on both the similarities and differences between his own world and the legacy of Kenzo Takada.

The collection is simultaneously an exploration of his longstanding fascination with the interaction between British, American and Japanese street culture. Refining his overarching vision for the Maison, the collection builds on the archival backbone of his practice while introducing influences close to his own heart.

In the Salle Pleyel, the 1966 Quartet plays string renditions of The Beatles in a reflection of the genre-spanning eclecticism of a collection that begins in the Swinging Sixties. A foundational era for Nigo, who was born in 1970, a vast part of his extensive archives of vintage clothes are devoted to the rocker and mod wardrobes of the time.

The spirit evolves into a study of Great British country attire expressed in a collaboration with Hunter. It inevitably echoes the legacy of Dame Vivienne Westwood, whose influence has been a constant in the career of Nigo.

The formative elements are infused with the joie de vivre of Kenzo Takada’s work in the 1980s and underpinned by the conversation between traditional Japanese construction and authentic American workwear that supports Nigo’s structural framework at KENZO.
