Paris Fashion Week: Kenzo F/W 2011-2012, a Tribute to Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keefe

The invitation to the fashion show was a subtle reference to a Mexican celebration Los Dias de Los Muertos, Day of the Dead, a festive day that honors the spirit of family ancestors.
Designer Antonio Marras's collection was inspired by Mexico and the American southwest, and greatly influenced by Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keeke's paintings and personal style. " The collection is about them," Marras told journalists after the show. You could see the dramatic styles of both women in the flowing dresses and skirts, some in oversized flower-print fabrics, and the voluminous outerwear.

A magnificent collection of long skirts and flowing dresses in flower and paisley-print fabrics, men's jackets with beadwork, and black lace suits. A palette of colors of earth tone, dark brown, olive, mustard and deep bordeaux highlight the new season collection.
