Season after season, bridging worlds and cultures is one of KENZO’s strongest and most natural executions. With this in mind, the latest addition to its family of accessories is another beautiful asset to the brand whose founder Kenzo Takada sailed from Japan to France over 45 years ago. Much like current Creative Directors, Carol Lim & Humberto Leon, Takada found the exciting in the current and wearable side of fashion, and the continued efforts from the American duo in, creating pieces for people to actually use, shows no sides of abate.
The “Rizo” bag is the perfect and exemplary star of what function and style mean for the brand in 2016. Leon and Lim’s Pre-Fall collection for 2016 was an ode to everything ‘Japan’ and the power of simple elegance and the strength of a woman in control. The “Rizo” is so simple in its allure, it is inspired by the rice bags of yester-year. Pleated and folded in order for it to stand upright, its double straps offer multiple carry options without complication.
Three styles – small, medium – and an oversize tote as ‘large’, provide ample options for the no-fuss women with a motive for success.
The Rizo is made of very soft, strong Italian leather and its contrasted timeless colors (blue/ python printed, burgundy/blue, black/ python printed, grey/lavender, brown/mint) make it the perfect pan-seasonal accessory.
RIZO line is now available in stores and online from 580€.
