What happens when two American retail stars take over a Paris-based Japanese fashion house?
Genius, that’s what. Which is why we are very excited that the hotly anticipated spring summer 2012 Kenzo collection has arrived at Holt Renfrew. Designed by Carol Lim & Humberto Leon, the founders of ultra-trendy US retailer Opening Ceremony, the collection combines the chic style of its home city (Paris), the exotic Kenzo handwriting, and the simple cool of its new design team.
Torn between the nylon 2-in-1 parka ($1,075) and the graphic jersey dress ($495), we now just need to convince our wallet to let us buy both. —Alexandra Suhner Isenberg
