Kenzo collaborated with the creative minds behind TOILETPAPER magazine, Maurizio Cattelan, Micol Talso and Pierpaolo Ferrari, for the Fall/Winter 2013 campaign, starring Sean O’Pry and Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi posing in a surreal and colorful world.
“There’s something so exciting about watching the TOILETPAPER team work. Maurizio, Pierpaolo and Micol express a huge essence of freedom in their methods and when we initially discussed the inspirations for the campaign, we were blown away by their immediate suggestions for interpretation. As soon as the shoot began, the images evolved even more. We couldn’t have imagined better, sharper or more perfect images to represent our Fall/Winter collections and are delighted to have had the opportunity to collaborate with such an inspired group.” – Carol Lim & Humberto Leon
