KENZO was founded by Japanese designer, Kenzo Takada in Paris in 1970. With its colorful prints and declaration of freedom, KENZO shook up the couture codes of the time by irreverently breaking the rules. In 2011, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim took post as Co-Creative Directors. At the core of their approach, travel, culture and fashion manifest in all that they do, KENZO has become known for its groundbreaking collaborations with avant-garde artists, musicians, actors, and designers. Apart from championing an era of retail expansion across the globe during their time at KENZO, Carol and Humberto have created a successful perfume, “KENZO World” and introduced a new line “KENZO – La Collection Memento” and have opened new stores in Paris, Barcelona, Tokyo, Rome, Seoul and Shanghai.
