“THE LAST MERMAIDS OF JAPAN”

The Spring/Summer 2020 collection was inspired by the home of KENZO founder Kenzo Takada, and more specifically to the surrounding seas of Japan where groups of strong, tenacious and modern-day super-heroes (“Ama”) plunge daily to retrieve treasures at the bottom of the ocean. Ama are groups of Japanese female free divers, who, for over 2000 years have dived to the ocean floor to forage for seafood for their communities. Withstanding harsh and sometimes freezing temperatures, they have become known as the last mermaids. The collection is a tapestry of elements combining traditionally marine associated garments with modern and technical diving gear, offering different fascinating looks.
