Recalling Carol Lim and Humberto Leon's days of youth, the KENZO Resort Collection 2014 is an ode to their home state of California. A bright and vitalized collection incorporating elements from music, nature and art, we are invited to wander nonchalantly through the relaxed and carefree life of a sun kissed, sunshine state citizen. Tailoring verges on the masculine by playing with proportions and matching cropped, high waisted carrot trousers and shorts with cropped jackets in graphic bi-color prints, "wet feeling" cotton poplin's evoke scuba diving and painted Japanese denim and spongy jersey demonstrate KENZO's affinity for fabric development. Over sized dresses in chintzy cotton and garments in 3-D honeycomb fabrics add structural volume. The collection is punctuated by fresh, cool summer colors of bubblegum, cement grey, peach and and pool blue and prints of hand painted palm trees and painters flowers.
