PERFECT PITCH
Paris: Humberto Leon and Carol Lim are consummate color experts, a fact proven by their new collaboration with Kenzo over the past few seasons. Choosing just the right tones at just the right time, the designers have caught the attention of the fashion industry and consumers alike, bringing optimistic Kelly green, bright hazard orange and rich navy to relaxed outerwear and daytime separates. For the Pre-Fall season, the duo’s trench coats, oversize cocoons, hooded parkas and bomber jackets moved into must-have territory via loose fits, color blocking and subtle patterns. Despite the concentration on layered outerwear, the collection also turned out many covetable tapered trousers, flirtatious a-line miniskirts, graphic logo t-shirts and mohair sweaters. Add perfectly on-trend accessories like rounded baseball caps, barrel bags and platform hiking boots, and Kenzo’s revival via the Opening Ceremony touch is a certifiable success.—Nina Stotler
