About Kenzo

What started off in 1970 as Kenzo Takada introducing Paris to a Japanese handmade fashion line consisting of vibrant floral jungle prints on kimonos and folk costume inspired pieces transformed when ultra-hip New York City style creative directors Carol Lim & Humberto Leon came on board in 2011. They brought a spontaneity & playful energy to the already vibrant and globally established fashion house while still paying homage to the label's founder's colorful eye and managed to marry that with contemporary influences of skate culture, cinema & streetwear, thereby giving a playful twist to the already well known and loved classic urban uniform.
