September 23rd, 2016:
H&M has released the first images from the Kenzo x H&M campaign - and they star 61 year-old model Iman, the widow of David Bowie.
Somalia-born Iman wears a tiered leopard print maxi dress in the image, shot by legendary photographer Jean-Paul Goude, famed for his handmade cut-up style.
In an accompanying video she speaks about her position as an activist for refugees - she herself fled Somalia for Kenya as a child amid political unrest in her homeland.
Chance The Rapper and Vietnamese rapper Suboi star alongside Iman in the campaign.
Actresses Rosario Dawson and Chloe Sevigny, Japanese musician Ryuichi Sakamoto and climate change activist Xiuhtezcatl Martinez also star in the campaign, though their images are yet to be released.
Pick up the October issue of ELLE to read an exclusive interview with Kenzo Creative Directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon about the collaboration.
The KENZO x H&M collection will be available in around 270 selected stores worldwide and online at www.hm.com on Thursday 3rd November, 2016.

There's just over two months to go until H&M's latest designer collaboration hits stores.
This year French fashion house Kenzo takes up the mantle as Creative Directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon aim to produce yet another sell-out collaboration for the Swedish high street giant.
Today we can exclusively reveal what is surely set to be one of the most-wanted pieces; a short folkloric ribbon dress featuring various prints from the collection, that can be yours (if you're quick enough) for £149.99.
Modelled by Norwegian musician Anna of the North, it's the fourth look from the collection that we have seen so far. She joins already-announced ambassadors for the collection Amy Sall, Juliana Huxtable, Oko Ebomo and Isamaya Ffrench, images of whom were released a few weeks ago.
The KENZO x H&M collection will be available in around 270 selected stores worldwide and
online at www.hm.com on Thursday 3rd November, 2016.
