Swag Talk: Kenzo Sweatshirts

by on September 17, 2012

Often forgot about Japanese brand Kenzo has made their way to the iLikeSwag radar since releasing these sweatshirts.

Kenzo’s been around forever now, but you’ve probably not heard of this Japanese fashion house since they tend to stay out of the spotlight. A subsidiary of LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy, if you don’t know by now), Kenzo’s made its mark in the fashion industry with unconventional designs and prints. They’re back on the map within the younger, hip fashion crowd since the launch of the very popular lion-faced, Eiffel Tower, and logo sweatshirts.

First Lady RiRi is a fan of the Kenzo sweatshirts.

I especially love that green lion-faced sweatshirt, as well as the opulent, rich red one seen in the Kenzo advertisement that’s hit the pages of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. Like most things that I tend to gravitate toward, these sweatshirts are going for a pretty penny – that red one I’m in love with is $873 – yikes! But if you’ve got it like that & are willing to drop that much on this neo-Cosby cool sweater, more power to you.

The Parisian Eiffel Tower one (seen on our girl Rih) is nice as well, but reminds me a bit of my grade school uniform for some reason. It’s safe to say that this Kenzo sweatshirt collection is going to be seen on all the too-cool-for-you girls, giving me more reason to wish that I was one of them!

What do you think of these Kenzo sweatshirts? Let me know in the comments section.
