That damn KENZO tiger motif keeps taunting me. Ever since it appeared on forest green sweatshirts on street style starlets I was like, me too! The duo, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim (of Opening Ceremony) are the masterminds behind KENZO’s recent success. The brand relaunched in July 2011 with Leon and Lim appointed as Creative Directors.

Recent collabos include a Fall/Winter collection with Italian cult magazine, TOILETPAPER – the more final scene of Zabriskie Point, the better. Just like a Eurotrash should.

Visited an old friend,, only to find that they now have a Canadian online store with shipping service, DHL (you pay a premium for it but it’s the best, in my experience). I love that they get new items in three times a week, and put a heavy emphasis on curation – they suggest what goes with what so you’re not deliberating for hours. For my inaugural purchase I’d like to take this Kenzo knit pullover here.
