The holiday season is just around the corner and KENZO along with its Artistic Director Nigo welcomes the festive period with their KENZO Xmas selection, which conveys a spirit of fun and togetherness that echoes the seasonal mood.
Inspired by the magical extravagance of the 80’s family adventure films, Nigo shares a fresh take on streetwear with pieces featuring XL logos, all-over prints as well as varsity touches, with the Boke flower at the center, but other key graphic elements of the brand complete the creative offering for men and women.
The selection features the Boke Flower, one of the brand’s graphic icons, at the center of the collection, as well as some of the brand’s other signature icons presented across the three lines that make up the collection.
The Boke line
Being the central icon of the collection, it is featured in a macro version on the front of gray and white sweaters and sweatshirts, while gray and black sweatshirts feature a mini red Boke Flower on the chest. On intarsia sweaters, in bold colors, the flower is presented in deconstructed form as well as an all-over print on a series of men’s and women’s Christmas sweaters and cardigans.
In addition to the Boke flower, the KENZO logo is also seen on the chest of a series of hoodies and sweatshirts in black and bright red, and yellow.
Festive Accessories: Shoes, Belts, Medals, Backpacks
References to Kenzo’s signature tiger are seen on long and short parkas with faux fur collars that pop against varsity jackets with oversized tiger heads and motifs on the front and back. The short jackets have Boke Flower prints and the long jackets feature contrasting panels at the collar and back.

Accessories certainly could not be missing to complete the selection and for this season we include leather belts in black or tan with a Boke Flower metal buckle in gold and silver finishes. A tiger version of the buckle is also available.
A line of badges and medals features naive and colorful characters that reflect the playful character of the entire offering.
Being a holiday season, festive wool hats, scarves, and gloves are featured, available in plain vibrant green or multicolored striped sets reminiscent of 1980s aesthetics. Socks are included in a variety of fun monochromes, as well as versions with the Boke Flower print, both in full and subtly placed at the ankle.
The monochromatic rubber-soled sneakers also feature Boke Flower and KENZO logos in contrasting shades.
The “Jungle” leather goods line features fun urban backpacks, bum bags, and crossbody bags decorated with crests depicting animals, small characters, Boke Flower, and KENZO logos.
