Kenzo’s New Era

Published May 23, 2012

With their vivid, block colors and fun tropical lettering, the caps above would fit in perfectly on the shelves of Opening Ceremony, tucked above the Rodarte “Radarte” T-shirts and B Store x Liberty floral print button-downs. It is difficult to decide, however, whether the caps-a product of Kenzo’s collaboration with New Era-are directly OC influenced, or whether OC and Kenzo merely share the same playful spirit, making Humberto Leon and Carol Lim the right pair to helm the French-Japanese house.

The Kenzo caps are available in men’s sizes as of next week and come in a variety of colors, inspired by Kenzo’s Spring/Summer 2012 womenswear collection. Retailers include Kenzo stores, Opening Ceremony (what a prophetic vision we had…), Barneys New York, Bosco Milan, Harvey Nichols, and Holt Renfrew.
