Kenzó Takada was a trendsetter with every inch in the late 20th century. As a Tokio fashion university graduate, he opened his first store in downtown Paris in 1970 and called it Jungle Jap. Its interior was meant to evoke the jungle, which laid the foundations of Kenzó's brand. It has earned its fame with its unusual combinations of patterns inspired by the Japanese culture and European fits during its first years. Since 2011, the founders of Opening Ceremony Carol Lim and Humberto Leon are in the brand's head and who, after Takada's example of pompous fashion shows try to bring something least expected to the scene with every new collection.
