The First Images of the Kenzo X H&M Collaboration Collection Have Landed

Three lookbook images from the anticipated Kenzo X H&M collection have been released today. Designed by Kenzo’s creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the line up features wild tiger prints in vivid colors splashed across body-hugging separates and accessories; bold Kenzo logos emblazoned on elbow-length gloves; and covetable, oversized outerwear pieces—cue the leather jacket that boasts cotton-candy pink, faux shearling lining.

Previous H&M designer collaborations saw famous faces fronting lookbooks and campaigns, like Olivier Rousteing’s army of models (led by Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid) for Balmain. Meanwhile, Alexander Wang selected Joan Smalls to front his collaboration campaign. However, Leon and Lim opted for a different approach. Leon described the faces as, “People we admire, icons in their own fields, people who are influential beyond their fashion sensibility,” in an interview with Vogue US.

The first set of lookbook images feature a refreshing cast of diverse and talented personalities, such as Senegalese-American activist Amy Sall who is the founder of SUNU: Journal of African Affairs, Critical Thought + Aesthetics; New York-based artist, DJ, and poet Juliana Huxtable; Paris-based musician and artist Oko Ebombo; and London-based makeup artist and illustrator Isamaya Ffrench.
