Kenzo X Disney's 'Jungle Book' capsule collection

To celebrate the worldwide release of Walt Disney Pictures’ live-action adventure “The Jungle Book” this month, Parisian fashion house KENZO returned to the jungle, producing a limited edition collection inspired by the story’s classic characters. KENZO Creative Directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon delved deep into the Disney archives to source some of the original drawings from the classic animated movie, “The Jungle Book”. Once they discovered these fantastically joyful sketches, the prints swiftly followed and Mowgli, Bagheera the panther, King Louie the orangutan, Hathi the elephant, Baloo the bear and Akela the wolf suddenly came back to life in two abundant and richly colorful jungle scenarios. 

“What we found most appealing for this project was to marry strong Jungle Book elements with details that we know as quintessential KENZO. There’s a way that everything comes together that is slightly familiar but also really fresh and exciting. The silhouettes we chose for the garments and accessories were inspired by the new direction Disney has taken with the live-action movie. There is a slight nod to jungle / safari elements (and even beautiful printed silk shorts directly inspired by Mowgli’s costume). Everything has been executed in a way that feels elevated and modern which has been the collective goal of Disney and KENZO from the very beginning of this collaboration.” Carol Lim & Humberto Leon
