Founders of the concept store « Opening Ceremony », Humberto Leon and Carol Lim are now at the helm of KENZO, aiming to inject their original energy into Parisian fashion. At the core of their approach, there is a love for travel, culture and fashion that manifest in all that they do. At Opening Ceremony, they successfully combine un-and-coming brands as well as established labels, while defying the standard expectation of the moment.
In the image of young KENZO Takada, who managed to cleverly upset the codes of 70’s, this new creative duo breaks away from the expected.
Driven by the environment of the 21st century, they consider the KENZO style like a game with resolutely personal rules. Originally from Japan, KENZO dreamed of coming to Paris. His wish became reality in 1970 when he opened his first boutique, “Jungle Jap” Located Galerie Vivienne.
Right from the start, he offered a different vision from the establishment of Parisian couture and the closed creative universe at that time.
Visionary and surrounded by an exciting group of friends, he anticipated a free global spirit. Both from California with Asian origins, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim want to take advantage of all creative aspects of the world around them. Their mission at KENZO is to instill a real joy of living and convey a new freshness to the brand, while at the same time continuing to surprise and o shake up the “Jungle” of fashion.
The eyewear collection transcribes the main ready-to-wear themes. Paterns with contrasted colors, metal parts with engraved decoration on temples, KENZO inspirations are rich and diversified. Here, technique meets creativity with a hard work on volumes and colors, sign of liberty and cheerfulness
