Kenzo's Pre-Fall Campaign Video Will Wake You Up Faster Than Coffee and Then Make You Nostalgic for Playgrounds

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Filmmaker Quentin Jones (of Victoria Beckham and Chanel stop-motion fame) directed Kenzo's high-energy and very cool short introducing the brand's pre-Fall 2012 line. The video is basically what would happen if Super Nintendo Mario met the Fresh Prince of Bel Air (on the playground where he spent most of his days), and the resulting mix made a cameo on Gumbi, if Gumbi were paper animation rather than claymation. If that seems confusing, just know that hula hoops and wrist streamers are in there, too.
