This is a simple look to break down because it went straight from the runway to the street without any translation in between. Shown on Kenzo’s fall 2012 runway, the outfit hints subtly at the jungle themes of the collection (you can see in the close-up after the break that the top is flecked with green and brown) but the overall effect of black and white goes perfectly with Leigh Lezark’s dark hair and alternative aesthetic.
While Lezark wore the outfit during the spring Paris fashion week season, it’s the kind of outfit that’s perfect for the autumn chill – just add tights and boots underneath and a coat on top.
The exact look is easy enough to achieve from Kenzo’s fall 2012 pieces, but you could also take inspiration from the silhouette: the waist-cinched skirt marries beautifully with a fitted stretch jersey top. Just be wary of opting for skirts with gathered elasticised waists as they won’t keep the silhouette so smoothly.
