The piece: Kenzo Kalifornia Bag
The price: $1,190
Why we want it: Kenzo already cornered the street style scene with its now-iconic eye print, thanks to creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim. And now they have their eye on being the makers of the newest must-have bag around, launching their biker-inspired Kalifornia bag with a star-studded bash in LA. We love it for its unexpected pop of baby blue, its roomy shape, its twist on colorblocking . . . OK, fine. We just want to get a head start on next season's Fashion Week Street Style bracket.
Last night, the stars were out to celebrate the launch of Kenzo's Kalifornia bag, and although we were on full It bag watch, we couldn't help but be distracted by the print party. Jessica Alba, in a graphic-print minidress with a textured hemline, and Fergie both framed their prints with black to let them pop. Rashida Jones showed she wasn't afraid of pattern in a fish-print dress, which she accessorized with a blue shoulder bag and white platform sandals. Three ways to wear print — but only one can be your favorite! Vote below.

Kenzo's Spring 2014 collection must make people feel like dancing. To celebrate the trunk show of the French brand's entire collection on Moda Operandi — which starts today — Taylor Tomasi Hill and blogger Chiara Ferragni made a video in which they dance around wearing garments from the collection.
Speaking of garments, shopping the sale isn't the only way to get your hands on one of these covetable pieces. The ecommerce site is hosting a contest to win the look Ferragni wears throughout most of the video, a cotton top that says "No Fish, No Nothing."
Take a look at the video below.
With a spectacular set featuring waterfalls pouring over the models and pools of water thumping to a techno beat, Kenzo clearly had an aquatic bent to it. Humberto Leon and Carol Lim focused in on the idea of the ocean, with a color palette of blue, white, and black that incorporated plenty of wave and fish prints. Will they replace the much-loved eye print? A tough act to follow, but if the enthusiastic response from the crowd at the end of the show means anything, these fishies stand a chance of being reeled in.
You can't talk about Kenzo without talking about the cult followers that designers Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have amassed with every quirky, cool-girl offering they send down the runway. Last season, it was the tiger-face sweatshirt, embossed with the brand's label and finished in a lineup of bright colors that rocketed to street style fame on the likes of Elena Perminova.
And, while you'll likely still spot that tiger, this season's fashion-crowd favorite was plucked straight from the Fall '13 runway. Not surprisingly, it's just as bold and awfully clever. Click through to see which Kenzo pieces are currently starring in the street style straight from Spring '13 Fashion Week.
