Kenzo began in Paris in 1970. In 1999, while marking its 30th anniversary, founder and artistic director Kenzo Takada retired. Carol Lim & Humberto Leon of Opening Ceremony were appointed Creative Directors in 2011. Using the brand’s DNA and a refreshed revolutionary spirit, the duo reintroduced Kenzo’s famous jungle themes in 2012. Today the brand reflects their passion for spontaneity and fun while continuing to respect Kenzo’s heritage.
