The Jungle Book might seem like an odd inspiration for a fashion collection, but Humberto Leon and Carol Lim were up to the challenge, having turned Where the Wild Things Are and Tron into collections for Opening Ceremony. For Kenzo’s collaboration with the upcoming film, Leon and Lim were granted access to the Disney archives, where they discovered drawings from the original film. Kenzo’s beloved tiger motif even got an update, replaced by Shere Khan. “There is a slight nod to jungle/safari elements (and even beautiful printed silk shorts directly inspired by Mowgli’s costume),” the designers noted in a release.
The capsule is out at Bergdorf Goodman today and on kenzo.com starting on April 7. Click through the slideshow to see all the looks.
