Originally from Japan, Kenzo dreamed of coming to Paris. His wish became a reality in 1970 when he opened his first boutique, «Jungle Ja », 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. Since 2011, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have taken over the creative direction of KENZO. Thanks to their new vision, the label has revived the spirit at the origin of its success.
