ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION STORY: Kenzo's Autumn/Winter 2013-14 collection is an ode to sumptuous brightly-patterned fabrics inspired by the East. Presented on Sunday (March 3) at Paris Fashion Week, this fun, fresh and upbeat collection is the product of many visits to Asia, said Kenzo co-creative directors Carole Lim and Humberto Leon. "You know, Humberto and I have been to India many times and we were really inspired by the architecture, particularly the temples that are in India. So that was a real beginning point for us," said Lim. An eye motif was scattered throughout the collection, embroidered onto the sweaters and worked into the intricate prints. "We wanted to really capture the spirit of the eye and really use it as a symbol. We love the idea that you are looking at the clothing and the clothing's almost looking back at you," said Leon. Paris is the final leg of the international Fashion Week whirlwind, following New York, London and Milan and runs from February 26 to March 6.
