Kenzo predicts beekeeping will be big next year with bizarre runway hats

We’ve seen some weird and wonderful things in the fashion world.

From ASOS selling a men’s t-shirt with a hole in the middle to Ikea launching its very own branded bucket hat.

Now, with Paris Fashion Week in full swing, it’s time to feast on some more bizarre garments and the Kenzo show has certainly delivered on that front.

It looks like the fashion house has got one thing and one thing only on its mind when it comes to SS21… and that’s beekeeping chic.

Photos show models parading down the runway in a whole host of beekeeping-inspired outfits – all with the signature hat and veil.

One model could be seen wearing a turquoise summer dress with a gigantic beekeeper hat and veil covering her body, while another teamed a red hat and veil with a matching coat.

Other models wore the headpieces like over-the-top sun hats, pairing them with adorable summer dresses. 

It’s safe to say there was plenty of buzz around today’s unusual show.

The idea for the SS21 range came to creative director Felipe Oliveira Baptista when she was sorting through archive photos during lockdown. She came across two snaps which inspired her to create this new collection – one was an ancient image of a beekeeper and another of a woman wearing a floral Kenzo veil.

Speaking ahead of the PFW show, she said: ‘Beekeeping is one of the ancient collaborations between humans and nature. Bees are the regulators of the world. I find this idea very reassuring; both poetic and positive.’

Kenzo’s SS21 show can be viewed in full on YouTube.

Elsewhere in the fashion world, Dr. Martens and Marc Jacobs have teamed up to bring out some vegan leather boots. Likewise, Primark has released a new modest collection to cover up and stay on trend this autumn.
