Kenzo

Designer

Parisian brand Kenzo, long renowned for its electic prints and vibrant colours, was turned upside down – in a good way- when Opening Ceremony’s Humberto Leon and Carol Lim took over the design reins in 2011. The pair, who have an unmatched eye for the next big thing, applied their own brand of cool to the label, collaborating with youthful brands like Vans and making Kenzo branded sweatshirts and caps fashion-editor must-haves. They’ve updated the house while still respecting its heritage of lively colours and patterns, making it one of the most exciting names in fashion at the moment.
