September signals an end to the long hot summer. And while temperatures are still scorching, the cooler months are fast approaching — which means it’s time to switch the laid-back linens for stylish sportswear destined for the great outdoors (or lounging in your living room, deepening on the mood). The perfect attire for a weekend exploring the Emirates? Kenzo’s new line of stylish sportswear.
Titled Kenzo Sport, the fashion house’s latest venture showcases functional silhouettes and achingly-cool accessories — think pistachio green belt bags, silver bucket hats and smartphone shaped carriers — to workout in, or simply wear off-duty. Infused with unisex accents, the collection is comprised of lightweight parkas, oversized sweatshirts and monogram miniskirts that tap into the on-going athleisure trend, as well as technical apparel such as leggings and mesh tee-shirts.
Inspired by movement and protection, the bold graphic designs are adorned with a fresh take on the Kenzo logo, which has been transformed into a sporty ‘X’ symbol. Created under the direction of Felipe Oliveira Baptista, the new Kenzo activewear will sit alongside the house’s ready-to-wear collection — which is often imbued with athleisure references and allure.
Kenzo Sport is available at Kenzo.com and at The Dubai Mall, Galeries Lafayette, Mall of the Emirates, Robinsons and Harvey Nichols in Dubai, as well as Galleria Mall on Al Maryah Island and Tryano in Abu Dhabi.
