Kenzo X H&M Threw an Epic Party on the Runway

Kenzo X H&M Threw an Epic Party on the Runway Because fashion can be this much fun.

Carol Lim, Humberto Leon, and the H&M team put on one hell of a show and Preview was there at Pier 36 in New York City to experience it. The venue was full of energy (an understatement, really) as vibrant pieces of the Kenzo X H&M collection were given life and a whole new level of appreciation—dance moves, confetti, and all.

Directed by legendary photographer Jean-Paul Goude, the runway show didn't just have models sashaying down the catwalk. Instead, these models twirled, whirled, pranced, and pounded hard on the floor—accompanied by an orchestra, a drumline, a beatboxer, and a loop of Sam Spiegel's "Express Yourself"—eventually turning the collection presentation into a full-on, high-octane dance bonanza as they pulled the entire audience (us, included) to join them on the dancefloor (basically, the whole place).

And as if it couldn't get any better—surprise, surprise—Ice Cube came on stage and the audience—the partygoers, I mean, completely vibed out to the rapper's music. Simply phenomenal.
