Parisian clothing brand Kenzo has a Japanese-sounding name, and has recently offered a glimpse into how much the East’s recent proclivity for patterned fashions has spread to the rest of the world. Not content to sit back and author another leopard design, Kenzo first pushed the boundaries with a unique lizard scale style that they’ve followed up with what might be a preview of next year’s trendy striped buttondowns. Joining that bold trio is another threesome of Kenzo x Vans Authentics, this time opting for floral prints that keep their unique place in the market with a simpler style during a time when the hottest ‘Hawaiian’ looks are more detailed than ever before. These should arrive at select retailers next month, so stick with Sneaker News for the release date and check out more photos below in the meantime.
