Carol and Humberto staged another unforgettable fashion moment for Kenzo's Fall/Winter 2012 show. Friends and family were in full effect to witness fifty models descend five floors of escalators in a rainbow-hued science university in the 5th arrondissement. On the 'lavender' floor, the Leon and Lim families, along with the other guests, munched on specially-made Magnolia for Kenzo cupcakes while Carol and Humberto made last-minute adjustments backstage. Set to a Nguzunguzu track, the show was big in the best way, with an army of Kenzo girls marching through the space, starting with an incredible Karlie Kloss in an embroidered logo sweatshirt and tweed mini-suit.
Taking their inspiration from the world of interiors and the experience of moving between rooms, the looks ranged from trellis-patterned silk gowns to belted outerwear to fitted dresses in silk shantung. Delfina Delettrez collaborated with the house on a collection of jewelry with metal-encased walnuts and citrus wedges, and legendary Almodóvar art director Juan Gatti contributed fruit prints. After the show, the whole gang celebrated at the Favela Chic, with new Kenzo fans Diddy and Cassie joining Robyn in the DJ booth. Epic from beginning to end!
