KENZO has had a big few months, from appointing new creative director Nigo to releasing a slew of collaborations and collections. They’re showing no signs of slowing down, either: the brand has announced 2 drops this week.
The first is part of the KENZO SPORT range, a collection for AW21 that is centered around an exclusive Brompton bike. Described as ‘elegance that is uncluttered’, the collection utilises functional and high-tech materials while sophisticated silhouettes allow for movement. Mesh and technical textiles come up against the classic KENZO jacquard monogram, and the KENZO x Brompton bike is being made in a limited run: only 50 will be produced worldwide.
The collection is for a good cause, too: All proceeds from the sale of the folding bike will be donated to Qhubeka, a global charity helping people to get where they need to go with bicycles in Africa.
For their other drop of the week, KENZO has brought out a new Courier line. This revolves around unisex accessories, also in the monogram jacquard. The collection includes a backpack, mail bag, belt bag, bum bag, mini-purse, wallet, card holder, and a smartphone holder, and prices range from £75 – £580 in store and online.
So – you can now wear, cycle and accessorise a full Kenzo AW21 fit – even down to the cardholder.
