After Calvin Klein, Bottega Veneta and a number of other brands before them, the news is hardly a surprise.

On Tuesday, Kenzo‘s co-Creative Directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim announced their plan to combine their men and women’s shows. Their very first co-ed show will take place on January 22 in Paris. From then on, Kenzo will continue to show their collections in the months of January and June.

But this doesn’t mean Kenzo will be absent from the fashion weeks, which are traditionally held in March and September. During the said months, the brand will present either special projects, collections or events, called “Memento.”


Alexander Wang


At the same time, a shake-up is happening inside Alexander Wang (the brand). Alexander Wang (the designer) has revealed that he’s consolidating his ready-to-wear and menswear collections, T by Alexander Wang, into one. Starting from Fall 2017, the two collections will be presented under one label “Alexander Wang.”
