The KENZO brands were founded in Paris in 1970 by Japanese designer Kenzo Takada. With its colourful and extravagant designs, KENZO challenged the rules of haute couture at the time. Inspirations drawn from travel, culture and fashion are visible in the design to this day. The brand is best known for its groundbreaking collaborations with avant-garde artists, musicians, actors and designers. KENZO now operates shops in European and Asian fashion capitals including Paris, Madrid, London, Tokyo, Rome, Seoul and Shanghai. Unexpected and versatile - Kenzo stands for youthful temperament and the zest for life.
