Kenzo delivered Wednesday a Doctor Zhivago-inspired pret-a-porter collection of Russian peasant and military looks and comfy knits fit for a Siberian winter.
With its oversized felt coats and voluminous striped knits, Kenzo's collection was one of the few Paris winter 2010 displays _ dominated by a parade of short cocktail dresses, some in diaphanous chiffons _ that actually looked warm.
Kenzo designer Antonio Marras said that in designing the collection, he had imagined a Russian woman packing her trunk for a train trip to Paris.
"It's a very, very cold winter in Russia," Marras told Associated Press Television News. "She packs it with a military jacket, an embroidered dress, platform boots, scarves, gloves ... In Paris, you have the marriage between Russian culture and French allure."
Models wearing peasant skirts in knit stripes or dusty flower prints with cowl-neck blouses and cocoon-shaped coats traipsed down a catwalk made of weathered wooden planks. Bulky scarves and knit caps or earflap hats topped off the looks, in dusky purples, peacock blues, grays and jade green.
One knockout piece was an A-line ivory sweater dress with embroidered branches that dripped with little red berries.
Model-actress Milla Jovovich, who was born in Kiev and whose mother is Russian, said, "There's a fairy tale quality to the designs that I love."
