The Kenzo Revival

The famous Fahion House Kenzo has always worked towards a multicultural world, a world of contrasts and beauty, with nature as a vibrant and inexhaustible source of inspiration.1

Kenzo Takada, the founder of the brand, was educated at Bunka in Japan and moved to Paris in the Sixties. He was one of the first fashion designers to use models of different races on the catwalk, and his first success came from garments made out of scraps of African textiles he bought at Parisian flea markets.

Kenzo was one of the first to bring ethnic-chic to the street, he delighted in the folkloric fairy tale, whether it originated in Old Bohemia, Mother Russia, the Manchu Dynasty, the Samurai Era of his homeland, Japan.

Over three decades, Kenzo expanded into menswear, jeans, childrenswear, a home collection, fragrances, and a flagship boutique in the Place des Victoires, along the way finding time to celebrate the 10th, 20th and 30th anniversaries, The 1990’s also bought change with, firstly, the ‘house’ becoming part of the LVMH Luxury Brands Group, in 1993, and, finally, in 1999, Kenzo Takada’s decision to step down. After Kenzo‘s retirement, Antonio Marras was appointed as creative director until 2010.

Humberto Leon and Carol Lim were nominated creative directors of Kenzo at the beginning of 2011. Since then, in just a few seasons, they turned upside down the ethnical references typical of the brand while preserving the playful and joyful inspiration. They started to design new collections that have inaugurated a new trend in the fashion of the New Millennium. This consists in an easy brand with a good quality/price ratio, desirable and signed, half way between the creative aspirations of the designers and those coming from the sensibility of the fashion people. It was a new experiment of democratic fashion, where democratic stands for easier accessibility to a world elitist by nature. In the end, they established the casual luxuryThe result is a collection featuring desirable clothes, easy but with a substance: trousers, jeans, bombers with raglan sleeves, jackets and dresses. Last season, the tiger printed on jumpers made the sold-out, and was a popular wear in most fashionable streets and premises.

Giorgio Armani Diffusion Lines

5There is a common thread running through Armani’s stylistic development that is closely associated with the change in contemporary society. It led to the creation of clothing and accessories that aimed at a clean, simple style, beyond fashion, designed to enhance the personality of the person who wore it.

Throughout the years, Giorgio Armani created several  secondary lines of clothing and accessories  that retails at lower prices. Classic yet contemporary, the Armani Jeans Clothing range is second to none. Originating in 1981, the brand has been a leader in menswear designer fashion for years. The line, however, includes a more diverse range of colors and styles than the high end Giorgio Armani selection from the same designer. Not featuring the same simplicity, Armani Jeans will ensure you stand out from the crowd yet keeping the class of the Armani brand.

Like all other diffusion lines of Armani, the Emporio Armani line sells shirts, jeans, accessories, jackets, footwear and more. You won’t be disappointed with the level of quality this brand unwraps, with the focus on impeccable products and style. While Armani Jeans still specializes in denim, and is where you will find the highest quality denim products within Armani, the Emporio Armani range offers casual and smart clothing for your everyday activity.

The infatuation with Hogan sneakers

Men and women are shopping more and more for comfortable shoes than dress shoes. The infatuation with Hogan sneakers proves that, considering they had been the best selling shoes in Italy for more than 10 years now. In 1986, the first sneaker, the “Traditional” was inspired by a cricket shoe, in 1995 the “Athletic” sneaker followed and in 1997 the “Interactive” sneaker was launched. This season, Hogan is producing a brand new dialogue about the foundations of its long-lived success. A touch more avant-garde, the legendary H shoe is finding a new definition within an aesthetic that’s a touch more conceptual. Concise and precise, the shoe is raised up and becomes more stylish upon contact with an atypical heel. By injecting a rambling spark into a sneaker that is one of the earliest examples of casual luxury, the H becomes the perfect sneaker to prepare for next winter.
