The golden splendor of temples in India, Nepal, and China inspired Carol Kim and Humberto Leon's Fall 2013 collection for Kenzo. But for all the ancient structures that fueled the offering's jacquard trousers and flocked lamé jackets, the clothing here felt decidedly contemporary.

For whimsy, the duo chose an eye motif that popped up as a small print on trousers and jackets and as the dominating visual element on a sweater.
