Inside Carol Lim and Humberto Leon’s Last Show for Kenzo With Selah Marley
Last night, in the sea of thousands who gathered in the Bercy Arena in Paris to witness Carol Lim and Humberto Leon’s final show for Kenzo, Selah Marley was fan girl-ing. The model was front row to support her two friends as they took their final bow as creative directors at the French fashion house. “Carol and Humberto brought Kenzo back to its roots in fashion,” Marley said. “They did it through their use of pop art and youthful silhouettes, textures, and imagery. I adore their joyous attitudes, their daring characters, and their extravagant productions.” Lim and Leon’s swan song on Sunday evening certainly counted as over the top, not only for the fact that it was held inside a massive arena but also because there were two performances: one involving a dance troupe wearing archival looks from Lim and Leon’s eight years at the helm, and the other a musical interlude from Solange.
Marley, dressed in a bright orange lace ruffle skirt and matching cropped anorak from Kenzo, was mesmerized by the show, which was partly inspired by female free divers in Japan. “Carol and Humberto are always willing to take things to the next level and break boundaries,” she said. The model ran into a few New York friends before the night was over, including DJ Kitty Cash and Rupaul’s Drag Race finalist Miss Fame, a chance meeting that resulted in a pretty epic fashion moment.
