H&M has unearthed the secret to finding paramount success in their buzzy designer collaborations, and the mega clothier has now tapped Kenzo Creative Directors Carol Lim (above, left) and Humberto Leon (above, right) for its latest round of affordable items. For the design duo, also responsible for New York’s beloved Opening Ceremony store and accompanying ready-to-wear collections, the opportunity was not one to pass up.
“With this collaboration with H&M we want to think big, push the boundaries and bring the new energy of Kenzo to everyone around the world,” Lim and Leon said in a statement. So what’s on deck? Set to drop in more than 250 stores worldwide and online on Nov. 3, the collection will include clothing and accessories for men and women. “We can’t wait to share the world of Kenzo x H&M with everyone, with all of its creativity, fun, and love of fashion,” Anne-Sofie Johansson, creative advisor at H&M, said in a statement.
Sure, we’ll have to wait quite some time for a better look at what to expect, but the brands each took to social media Wednesday morning to offer a seconds-long clip of the jungle-inspired, print-heavy designs to look forward to.
Will this one top H&M’s instantly sold-out run with Balmain? All signs are pointing to a yes.
