H&M has announced that its next designer collaboration will be with Kenzo. The collaboration is slated to hit stores around the globe on November 3 this year.

“We can’t wait to share with everyone the world of Kenzo x H&M, with all of its creativity, fun and love of fashion,” said Ann-Sofie Johansson, creative advisor at H&M, which revealed the collaboration would entail menswear, womenswear and a selection of accessories.

The French luxury brand was started by Kenzo Takada way back in 1970 and landed Opening Ceremony co-founders Carol Lim and Humberto Leon as creative directors in 2011.

The collaboration with H&M sees Kenzo following in the footsteps of some of the industry’s most prestigious fashion houses, including Isabel Marant, Alexander Wang, Matthew Williamson, Marni, Karl Lagerfeld and, most recently, Balmain.

“With this collaboration with H&M we want to think big, push the boundaries and bring the new energy of Kenzo to everyone around the world,” said Lim and Leon, who also design for Opening Ceremony which they founded in 2002, this morning.
