A Russian Christmas
(View full size image here)
Kenzo's Fall Winter 2009-2010's inspiration was taken directly from the wintry escapade Russia. The clothes take the form of the great Russian bear with bulky fur sleeves & collars, huge fur pockets for vests and even a pinstripe jacket.
Pretty rose, floral, fruit & vine prints were sported on dresses, jackets, coats, suits and shawls, which made me thought of humble Russian peasants working in the fields for an honest living.
Some floral and harvest print pieces were lavishly embellished with hundreds of beads, stones, and semi precious gems.
The focal point of the Kenzo Fall Winter collection for me would be the lovely floral silk scarves that added a pop of colour and romantic feel to the mostly deep, dark and dull coloured bitter winter tones of a harsh Russian winter collection.
