If you've been following me on twitter, tumblr, or instagr.am, you would know that I was invited by KENZO team to dress up nine of their mannequins, six on the window display and three in-store, at their Avenues Phase II boutique. It was quite challenging because I had to dress up eight out of the nine mannequins using their new cruise/resort collection. And I'm sure most shopaholics are aware that resort or cruise lines are to some extent limited. So I tired to create a different look on each of the mannequins. The easiest mannequin I have styled was the one which I mixed cruise with statement pieces from the brand's défilé line A/W 2012, that fur jacket! Sigh! Anyhow, it was definitely a fun experience and a loved every minute of it, just as much as I loved styling DKNY a few months back. Scroll down for some bits and pieces about this fun task...
I loved the leather belts at KENZO, they were very soft and make a great statement piece if you want to accentuate your waist line.
Check out the mannequin on the right striking a "talk-to-the-hand" pose. I loved that cobalt blue blazer with its printed silk lining.
Now THIS is the statement belt that I got, it's in the season's "it" color bright mint green. Loved it!

Unfortunately I forgot to take a full photo of this off-white button down shirt from the brand's cruise collection (but you can see it a bit in the last photo). I luuuved it's full shape. Perfect for long and hot summer days.
I used KENZO's cute round brooches and attached them to metallic necklaces to add some flair to the final look. They looked very Marni-like.
