KENZO Embraces Next Generation of Creative Talent Through a Series of Shorts

Since its inception, French luxury-contemporary fashion house KENZO has been seen as a pioneer when it comes to creativity, from its founding days by Kenzo Takada himself, all the way through to its current captains Carol Lim and Humberto Leon. While fashion of course remains at the core of what KENZO is, it’s also a platform that celebrates all facets of creative culture, from music to the arts. For its latest efforts in pushing the boundaries of creativity by blending these aforementioned facets together, KENZO has embraced the next generation of talents by producing a series of short films that offers a platform for three young, budding filmmakers to show the world their worth.

The three films, which also serve as a way to highlight KENZO’s FW17 collection, brings on Mati Diop, Baptist Penetticobra and Eduardo Williams, all of which get to create their own short under the same theme of “expressing a singular relationship with the world.” Speaking on the project, KENZO states, “these filmmakers are part of a generation who is more and more concerned about the frailty of a planet which contours erode to the contact of intensive activities and ecological disasters.” Check out all three here, then head over to the house’s official website to learn more.
