They caused near hysteria last year when they teamed up with Balmain, and now we can see H&M's latest designer partnership with Kenzo creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon in all its garish glory. The high-street favourite and Parisian fashion house announced the collaboration back in May, and teased the first images in July. In an interview with H&M at the time of the announcement, Leon said:
”We wanted to really tell the story of the brand and of us. Together with H&M, we will invite all the customers and fans to the real Kenzo world."

The collection is inspired by the concept of diversity, and the campaign features a range of influential faces from across the globe, from Chloe Sevigny and supermodel Iman, to New York writer and activist Amy Sall.
The collection hits stores on November 3, and is jam packed with Kenzo's signature bright hues and fierce prints, with a heavy focus on leopard spots and zebra stripes. I, for one, can't stop thinking about the multi-print folkloric collared dress (below left). And can I remind everyone that Iman is 61 YEARS OLD and is slaying that tiered leopard print gown like it's nobody's business.
