The only thing that could give birth to a stunning resort collection is a perfect imagination and a great designing talent. Antonio Marras’s limitless imagination and Sardinian passion prove that his all collections are actually intense affairs, where fantasy and extravagancy lead. It’s a big anniversary year for the world renowned label now and to thoroughly capture the essence and gaiety of Kenzo, Antonio Marras looked back through Kenzo Takada’s earliest creations almost forty years ago, when the famous Japanese designer was trying to inject some color and cheerful spirit into the tense Parisian fashion world. As a result, this diverse and colorful source of inspiration led to the fantastic and feminine Kenzo Resort 2011 collection, where a new approach to floral fantasy is given. Let’s join beautiful model Marlena Szoka and take a dizzy stroll through the dreamy garden of tulips in the Kenzo Resort 2011 lookbook, getting acquainted with every single enchanting item of it.
The Kenzo Resort 2011 lookbook is a great interpretation of vibrant solids, bright floral prints, a certain youthful spirit and a hint of the 70’s mood full of exuberance. A mixture of stripes and checks, the ground-sweeping maxi dresses, the colorful and playful knitwear and a great cavalcade of spectacular florals make the main ingredients of the collection, which form a perfect getaway into the world of dreams and fantasies. Antonio Marras seems to be having fun with every single item in the lookbook, creating a new atmosphere full of energy and charm. You can immediately catch the old Japan shades on in the obi belts. The Asian-inspired atmosphere is what makes the fashion pieces so adorable and unique, rather than fitting a certain mold. Marras uses specific designs and techniques that made the label of Kenzo so popular. He brings back one of the first shapes, designed by Kenzo Takada – a shirtdress based on a kimono.
The Kenzo Resort 2011 lookbook features an original floral harem jumpsuit, pretty dresses, pleated shorts, knitwear, long prairie styled skirts, floral clogs, designer handbags, swimsuits, formal suits and other elements, most of which are drenched in harmonic floral prints. It’s absolutely an amazing, adorable and fun collection that will provide you with stunning pieces to stand out in the busy streets.
