KENZO’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection is a colorful and divinely energetic assemblage, a futurist and optimistic vision.
Co- creative directors HUMBERTO LEON and CAROL LIM wanted to take this a step further for the campaign and depict a true utopia. They tapped a hero of theirs, iconic photographer, filmmaker, and artist DAVID LACHAPELLE, to shoot the images.
Infinitely and uniquely qualified for the job, LaChapelle has made a career out of not so much depicting his subjects but rebirthing them and placing them into a fantasia of his own making. His images are instantly recognizable and inimitable. He has also spent much of the past 11 years in tropical heaven-on-earth: Maui, Hawaii.
