Neon by Kenzo and Laetitia Hotte
French photographer Laetitia Hotte plays with the characteristics of cinema in her Neon series for Kenzo’s Fall/Winter collection. Hotte plays with prints and perspective, creating bold backdrops for the geometric patterned garments from the French fashion brand. The collection’s square motifs and set design refer to the frames of rolls of film. Different types of perspectives create an optical illusion which are a nod to the surrealistic works of David Lynch. The director’s whimsical films are the main inspiration – reminiscent of Twin Peak’s eerie scenarios. Models seem to float and defy gravity, trying to stay inside or on top of the – seemingly levitating – cube.
