Kenzo Homme Spring 2009PARIS, Jun 9, 2009 / FW/ — Upbeat and colorful, the Kenzo Homme collection for summer 2009 is uplifting during this dire times, something that the whole world needs right now.

Unveiled last July 2008, before the collapse of the global economy, seeing the collection in stores now is a reminder that hope is eternal and Kenzo’s colorful vision of fashion is as timeless as hope itself.

Easy to wear tunics in a kaleidoscope of colors and loose-fitting walking shorts are perfect for summer vacations or just a weekend get-away.

Formal dressing means wearing suits, wherein you can wear a tie or go tie-less. There is a classic touch as the collection referenced Middle Eastern aesthetics; but the total effect is fashion forward with the innovative use of fabric and cut.
