Antonio Marras shows real confidence in his menswear collections for Kenzo as each season his signature handwriting develops. Colour and global cultural references are intrinsic to Kenzo and for this collection Marras added a vintage, worn in aesthetic to the mix. The invitation, a passport travel journal indicated the stimuli for the clothes - a journey between Sardinia, Paris and Japan. The opening section of the show was pure French, with navy, ecru, beige and red used in a variety of stripes and blocks. Next, neutrals of taupe and beige were topped off with intense green and grey. Fabrics were natural including leather, jersey and cotton and enhanced the relaxed aesthetic. Kenzo's appeal is wide reaching and compasses a broad age range. And while it avoids associations with the conceptual clan of designers, Marras has an individual and relevant respective on menswear.
