Drawing inspiration from 19th century explorer Pierre de Brazza, Kenzo creative designer Anonio Marras talks to Dazed Digital about the release of their Spring/Summer 2010 Collection. ”De Brazza is credited with being the man that discovered the Congo through one of his many self funded expeditions, and a gentleman that played by his own rules. Seeing out his quest for new lands and a further understanding of the world on his own terms, Pierre de Brazza was someone that travelled in a very humane way and was very much respectful of the local people. He was an idealist and for this reason he was the perfect Kenzo man, a cosmopolitan dandy’’ says Antonio.
Buttons and sections of floral and snakeskin fabric accent the 2010 collection which is vastly in a white and cream color palette giving the summer collection a minimal and clean aesthetic. See backstage images below.
