Paris-based fashion brand Kenzo used only models of Asian descent for its Spring 2018 runway show.
The brand, which was founded in 1970 by Japanese designer Kenzo Takada, showed this season’s offerings for both men and women in Paris earlier this week. A total of 83 models walked in the show hailing from Japan, Korea and Taiwan.
Designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon took their inspiration for the collection from Japanese musician Ryuichi Sakamoto and model Sayoko Yamaguchi.
“For both collections we aim to capture the duality of the two figures, we look to the era when they both ruled two distant continents; to Ryuichi’s personal flair when questioning the norm, and to Sayoko’s ability to mix patterns, prints, silhouettes, and colors.”
