OD’s has recently been graced with the latest collection by Kids Kenzo and, as a designer label that continually releases new statement prints and fresh designs, we thought it was a good idea to throw it back into the spotlight and see what this season’s range has to offer. Straight away it’s easy to see that creative directors, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, have worked their street-cred magic once more – taking the brand’s vibrant and quirky spirit and giving it a cool and contemporary tweak. The AW18 Kids Kenzo Collection is bursting at the seams with the brand’s trademark tiger motif and, this year, you can expect a combination of both the traditional bold colour palette and slightly more muted pastel tones. Three new themes have been introduced, including cosmic, frozen, and fantastic jungle; however, the emphasis is on comfortable classics with a distinctive designer touch and everyday staples that surely deserve a place in your little one’s wardrobe.
Here we take a look at some of our top picks from this season’s coveted collection and highlight four easy ways for your mini-fashionista to don Kenzo Junior over the upcoming autumn and winter months.
No. 1: The Iconic Kids Kenzo Jumper
Although initially designed to be worn by Leon and Lim on the catwalk, the Kenzo Tiger Sweatshirt has become one of the brand’s most iconic and popular designs. In fact, it is now an international bestseller, worn by everyone from A-list celebrities to style-conscious parents and their newborn. It’s only right that such an iconic style features in the new collection and, for AW18, there are new statements styles for children of all ages. Take for example the Boys Kenzo Cosmic Tiger Sweatshirt. Embracing this season’s cosmic theme, it comes in a charcoal black colourway and features both the multi-coloured tiger motif and a number of unique and abstract globe prints to the front. Girls can also get a piece of the action with this grey-marl number and we’re sure tiny tots will appreciate the Baby Boys and Baby Girls Kenzo Tiger Sweatshirt – coming in pale blue and pastel pink, respectively. These jumpers are warm, cosy, and incredibly iconic and, in our option, they are one of the easiest (and most practical!) ways to don Kids Kenzo over the chilly months ahead.
No. 2: A Branded Kenzo Kids T-Shirt
If a piece of clothing by Kenzo doesn’t feature the signature tiger motif, it will more than likely feature the brand’s equally iconic logo and – it’s fair to say – it crops up quite a lot in this season’s collection. Short-sleeved tees come in subtle colourways and, with the logo printed simply across the front of the design, they offer an incredibly easy and understated way to wear this designer brand. Here at OD’s, we particularly like the Girls Kenzo White Logo T-Shirt, with its relaxed longer-length fit and gold metallic branding. Simply style it up with a pair of leggings and a puffer jacket and create a high-end winter look for your mini fashionista. Boys also have a selection of Kenzo Kids T-Shirts to choose from, including this simple white exemplar. Add it to his casual weekend collection and, we guarantee, it will be pulled out of the wardrobe time and time again.
No. 3: Signature Kids Kenzo Tights
Admittedly, this is one for the little girls, but we couldn’t resist pointing out the range of luxurious day-to-day tights that Kids Kenzo have released for AW18. These come in a variety of different colourways; however, we absolutely ♥ them in fuchsia pink. They are bright, eye-catching, and truly reflect the vibrant nature of the brand and we reckon they’ll go down a treat with pink-obsessed girly-girls. They are also constructed from luxuriously soft cotton fabric, with a stretchy elasticated waist, thus making them an ideal option for everyday use. Ensure they are the focal point of an outfit and team with a simple denim dress and chelsea boots to complete the colourful look.
No. 4: Casual Kids Kenzo Joggers
A kid’s winter wardrobe isn’t complete without a pair of casual joggers and, thanks to the Kenzo Junior AW18 Collection, it’s easier than ever to tick them off the checklist. Styles are available for both boys and girls of all ages, starting from teeny tots to fussy teens, and this season they come in a range of subtle colourways. Take for example the Boys Grey Kenzo Logo Trousers. Up for grabs in a light grey marl, they feature a white rubberised logo to the bottom left leg and are an incredibly comfy way to don the designer brand. Simply combine with the matching Boys Kenzo Grey Logo Hoody and a short-sleeved tee and get him ready for those lazy winter weekends at home.
