Humberto Leon and Carol Lim really do have friends in high places. With their major overhaul of French fashion house Kenzo, the duo not only create high voltage high fashion designs, but they also inject the same personality into their live fashion shows. Paris Fashion Week saw them enlist M.I.A. on the musical front, and this time, Beastie Boys’ Mike D has been called in to create the soundtrack for their latest show. Talking to Kenzo, Mike D explains his inspiration behind the custom-made track, which has a more distinctly rock/punk vibe.
“Talking to Humberto, I wanted to honor what he was inspired by: American hardcore like Black Flag, Bad Brains, Circle Jerks but then I wanted to update it, or maybe couldn’t help but to update it.”
Listen to the track below.
