Kenzo x H&M is coming, and the Swedish retailer has been teasing the hell out of this year's designer collaboration before it hits stores on Nov. 3. First, it revealed a sneak peek at the clothing (hello, animal print jumpsuits). Then, it shared some key details about the campaign — namely that legendary surrealist photographer Jean-Paul Goude was tapped to shoot "ambassadors" Chloë Sevigny, Rosario Dawson, Iman and Chance the Rapper, as well as musician Ryuichi Sakamoto and hip-hop artists Suboi and Xiuhtezcatl Martinez. As is typical for Kenzo designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon — also of Opening Ceremony — it's a solid crew of some seriously cool celebrities. And on Thursday, the first fruits of the project were finally revealed.

Indeed, Chance the Rapper, Iman and Suboi got the Goude treatment in images rendered in his "signature hand-made cut-up style, slicing and reassembling the prints to express the exuberance and character of the collection," according to an H&M statement.

In addition, H&M released video interviews with the first three campaign stars — each talking about their passions and inspirations — filmed by director Max Vitali. Check the clips out below before the rest of the campaign launches on Oct. 17.
