Kenzo Spring 2013
Humberto Leon and Carol Lim looked to the Southeast Asian jungles for inspiration, but the fully realized Spring '13 lineup was the kind of safari-inspired style that's more suited to the city. A punchy palette of orange and green was made all the more playful with oversize leopard spots (that start to look more like flowers than animal prints) and all-over abstract jungle prints. Of course, even if print isn't your thing, hear us out: they feel infinitely more contemporary worn with the line's cropped, safari-style jackets or tempered with buttery leather sleeves. And, if you're seeking something sexier, Kenzo answers with its off-the-shoulder dresses, bustier-style tops, and cinched waists.
