KENZO introduces a new film for its signature FLOWERBYKENZO fragrance.
FLOWERBYKENZO: The world is beautiful: In 2000, KENZO gave the red poppy life and presented the powdery floral fragrance FLOWERBYKENZO to the world. 10 years later, KENZO reinvents its signature with a new ad film. At dawn on the rooftops of Paris, a Japanese fairy appears to shower the city with poppies, transforming the skyline into a celestial field of flowers. She observes as the city comes to life, citizens awakening to find a whimsical playground above them. Directed by Patrick Guedj and introducing Lika Minamoto as the new face of FLOWERBYKENZO.
