LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton-owned Kenzo has announced plans to enter into an exclusive partnership with Saks Fifth Avenue. As part of the agreement, the label’s spring 2022 women’s and men’s apparel line will be stocked exclusively at Saks’ locations in New York, Chicago and Atlanta as well as on saks.com. Creative direction for Kenzo is now lead by designer Tomoaki Nagao, better known as Nigo, with spring representing his debut collection for the label.
Commenting on the news, Saks Fifth Avenue chief merchandising officer Tracy Margolies told WWD, “We are excited to be the exclusive retail partner for this collection as Kenzo enters a new era under Nigo’s leadership. Customers come to Saks to discover newness and fashion they can’t find anywhere else, and we anticipate that this limited-edition capsule will have a strong appeal for both our men’s and women’s clients.”
Saks will stock its first Kenzo assortment on April 2, 2022 with another drop scheduled for May 2022.
