Kenzo Featured An All-Asian Cast For Its S/S 2018 RTW Show

Recently, Kenzo featured an all-Asian cast for its S/S 2018 RTW show which I find interesting simply because of the lack of Asian models found in the fashion industry. The show featured not only Japanese models but Korean and Chinese models as well. According to Kenzo's instagram, the designers kept muses Sayoko Yamaguchi and Ryuichi Sakamoto in mind as they were designing this collection. Sayoko Yamaguchi was Kenz┼Ź Takada's original muse while Ryuichi Sakamoto is the house's modern inspiration. According to another post, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim "felt like it would be really beautiful and poetic to cast a full Asian cast and celebrate the heritage of the brand." I, too, think it is beautiful.
