Moments ago LVMH announced a massive change for Kenzo. Two big names in fashion, Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, will lead the way forward for the brand as the new Creative Directors effective immediately. You’re probably already very familiar with these two individuals as Leon and Lim are the dynamic duo behind the USA’s Opening Ceremony, which they started in 2002. They will replace Antonio Marras, who has been Creative Director at Kenzo for eight years.
“Humberto and Carol will bring their fresh creative talent and innovative approach to Kenzo to rejuvenate this iconic brand. I am confident that they will leverage the unique contemporary & lifestyle spirit of the Brand to position it ideally for an ambitious development,” declared Pierre-Yves Roussel, Chairman and CEO of the Fashion Division of LVMH.
“Kenzo Takada came to Paris from Tokyo with bold new ideas for fashion and established an international company full of vibrant energy and color. We are thrilled to take Kenzo, a source of great inspiration for us, into the future with our generation and the next in mind,” said Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, Creative Directors of Kenzo.
