H&M this morning announce KENZO as their 2016 designer collaboration, with the collection set to launch on 3 November. After 13 designer collections since 2004 – including Karl Lagerfeld, Versace, Comme de Garcons, Alexander Wang and 2015’s Balmain, their most successful to date – the French brand is in good company and will no doubt include some of their signature streetwear icons that have become de rigeur since Humberto Leon took the helm at Kenzo in 2012 with Carol Lim.

 

“We can’t wait to share with everyone the world of KENZO x H&M, with all of its creativity, fun and love of fashion,” H&M’s creative advisor Ann-Sofie Johansson said of the collection, which will include menswear and womenswear as well as accessories.

There may also be a few surprises, with Leon and Lim adding: “With this collaboration with H&M we want to think big, push the boundaries and bring the new energy of KENZO to everyone around the world.”
