We had gotten a few sneak peeks at the forthcoming Kenzo x H&M collection through the Jean-Paul Goude ad campaign starring Chance the Rapper, Iman and Suboi when a few lookbook images were released back in July. But for those of you eager to see everything designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon have cooked up for the fast fashion collaboration, the wait is over. The last week was the launch collection week both in Europe and the USA

The iconic H&M stores (300 of them) throughout the world have hosted a party for the press and many guests for the last 2 days with djs and a party proper to occasion

Lim and Leon the famous Kenzo designers assembled an eclectic group of creatives to model the bold and layered menswear and womenswear looks: writer and activist Amy Sall, photographer Youngjun Koo, artist and DJ Juliana Huxtable, musician and performance artist Oko Ebombo, fashion editor Harriet Verney, makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench, artist Ingrid, musician Anna of the North, model and rapper Le1f, and models Mae Lapres, Hao Liu, Selena Forrest, Tom Gaskin, Julia Banas and Pierre Painchaud. Between these images and the ad campaign, the Kenzo designers have enlisted a seriously cool crew to promote the collaboration. 


In addition to the cold-weather appropriate ready-to-wear (coats, jackets and scarves) and more seasonless separates, the collection includes a wide range of accessories: visor sunglasses, totes that look like Kenzo shopping bags, elbow-length gloves, flat brims, beanies, cross-body bags, galoshes, flip-flops, socks and sock boots. The price list has yet to be released, but there is clearly something for everyone looking to score a piece of Kenzo when the collaboration hits H&M stores and online on November 3.
