Exclusive to only three retailers in the UK, Kenzo Kids have created an exclusive, limited edition capsule collection for our mini fashion lovers! We take a look into the background of worldwide renowned brand Kenzo and what you can find in this exciting new six piece collection...
Cool French fashion house Kenzo was founded in Paris in 1970 by Japanese designer Kenzo Takada. After studying in Toyko’s Bunka Fashion College and winning the prestigious Soen prize, Takada moved to Paris where he worked for various department stores including the Pisanti textile group and Relations Textiles.
He opened his first boutique in 1970, named Jungle Jap, and later held runway shows to display his clothes which began attracting more and more attention. After this, Kenzo’s designs became renowned for his Asian and Japanese influenced style with the expert construction of European manufacturing.
Kenzo Takada announced his retirement in 1999, leaving creative direction to his assistants. Since 2011, founders of Opening Ceremony Humberto Leon and Carol Lim have succeeded directorship and have stayed true to the brands iconic DNA. The fashion house is celebrated worldwide for their kooky mix of colour, design, quality and culture.
Kenzo Kids has little ones styled in the world’s most coveted mini-mi pieces, including iconic Tiger sweatshirts and playful printed separates.
Featuring more cute mini-me designs, Kenzo Kids have created a capsule collection offering six key pieces, all inspired by the Kenzo Autumn/Winter 2016 fashion runway show. Lim and Humberto have stayed close to the brands roots by using Japanese anime Sailor Moon as inspiration for the exclusive collection. Also influenced by archived prints, the design team have given the iconic tiger stripes a modern update with flashes of metallic silver and black. The girls and boys t-shirt, trousers and skirt sets have iridescent stripes printed all over with Kenzo logo printed to front in rubber ink. The sweatshirts come in candy pink and bright blue, embroidered with popcorn and tiger stripes with striking 3D KENZO logo.
