The Kenzo women's pre-fall 2016 collection was promoted using a creative interpretive film of 'Momotarō' -- a classic Japanese story. The short film, titled 'Sun to Sun' was shot in a number of stunning locations, which includes Kamakura, Fujisawa and Tokyo.

The plot follows a female-only biker gang that's headed by a girl named Momoko. It shows the women riding through the city and focuses in closely on the film's lead character, giving the clothing line a short yet compelling introduction. By associating the brand with the classic folktale, Kenzo makes clear its Japanese influence and depicts its consumers as fearless women. Included on the company's page that promotes the line are interviews with members of the film's cast, with the bikers speaking to how strong they feel on the vehicles.

The Kenzo women's pre-fall collection includes the pieces worn by the bikers, allowing consumers to envision themselves as powerful as the women shown in the promotional video.
