Last year, Kenzo brought their new publication Folio to life by going into the heart of the south-eastern town of Nsukka in Nigeria for a powerful image series. Set on exploring global and cultural identities, this time around, their second instalment sees the French fashion house taking to Tokyo for a haunting music/dance/performance/film project, titled “Le Renard Bleu.”
Directed by Partel Oliva, the 20-minute film centres on the collaboration between pioneering Japanese composer and percussionist Midori Takada (in the first music she’s created in 20 years) and UK-based pop babe Lafawndah.
Translating to “The Blue Fox,” their EP “Le Renard Bleu” references the ancient Japanese and Sengalese folktales about the cunning animal. The atmospheric performance also features original moves from LA-based Krump dancer, Qwenga, who plays the fox.
