KENZO Spring/Summer 2014 film by Kahlil Joseph‏ : Dawn in Luxor

KENZO’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection is about California as a nexus of experiences,radiating from Carol Lim & Humberto Leon’s teenage years.

Kahlil Joseph, a resident of Los Angeles, is known for a string of stellar short films and music videos, among which Flying Lotus ‘until the quiet comes’ and Shabazz Palaces ‘Black Up’.
Through his lens,the world appears as fragmentary, paradoxical and beautiful visual riffs. It is a perfect companion to KENZO’s Spring/Summer 2014 collection, which encapsulates California in all its variety: soft and hard, relaxed and intense, sophisticated and casual.
In this short film, Kahlil Joseph conjures up an otherworldly Los Angeles, awash in myths and visions: a man ordering fish in a Jamaican restaurant,the regal beauty of a woman overlooking the sea, a beautiful boy paying homage to a beached dolphin. This amalgamation of images is deployed through a loose narrative driven by pure emotion.
