Kenzo Unveils ‘Jungle Book’ Collection
Published on 02 April 2016
Kenzo has unveiled the look book for its capsule collection with Disney to coincide with the worldwide release of the new film adaptation of “The Jungle Book” directed by Jon Favreau.
Speaking with WWD, Lim says The Jungle Book’s characters have all inspired the vibrant garments. She says: “If you know about Kenzo’s history, you know that Kenzo Takada started a line called Jungle Jap.
“The tiger, all the references that he made led us to collaborate with Disney. We looked at the archival drawings of The Jungle Book as well as the new imagery and our tiger. We did a beautiful print mixing all these elements together. We put it on beautiful dresses, jackets, denim, jersey, sweatshirts — a bunch of different things.”
