Kenzo Takada from Himeji, Japan, founded the home of Kenzo in Paris in 1970 after attending the prestigious Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo. He was one of the first male students at the college and since graduating has made a commitment to use his art to celebrate life and the natural world that grants it to us. This can be seen in the bold, colourful designs and motifs that are delivered through the labels range of Kenzo caps, jeans, shirts and more. The iconic tiger head motif invokes nature’s most powerful creatures and features on many of his designs.
This very tiger head is prominent on Kenzo sweatshirt, tees and hats, twisting the natural colours of the tiger to create a halfway point between the modern and the natural world. Kenzo’s mission was one of harmony between man and nature and this design is an example of how he used fashion to accomplish it.
After Kenzo retired from the brand, Portuguese designer Felipe Oliveira Baptista became the creative director of the company. The new logo, designed to celebrate the new chapter of the Kenzo for men while retaining its enthusiastic and nomadic spirit through the use of a construction game motif, can be seen on everything from caps and face masks, to knitwear and tracksuits.
