How do you end an era of fashion? If you’re longtime Kenzo designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, you want to make your exit even more fashionable than your entrance, which the duo did when presenting their final Men and Women Spring Summer 2020 Fashion Show in Paris on Sunday.
Sending them off in style was the one and only Solange Knowles, a close friend of the brand who was on hand to celebrate the tenure of Lim and Leon, the first Asian-Americans to hold artistic director positions at parent company LVMH. To mark the occasion, Knowles, who notably also celebrated her 33rd birthday on Monday, not only took to the catwalk wearing one of the duo’s custom designs, she also composed, conducted and performed an original composition, complete with a horn section.
