Takada Kenzo was born in Himeji, Japan in 1939. He graduated from the Tokyo Bunka Gakuin fashion school and then moved to Paris in 1965, establishing his Kenzo Jungle Jap store there in 1970. Kenzo has always worked towards a multi-cultural world, a world of colours and beauty, with nature as a vibrant, inexhaustible source of inspiration. The Kenzo brand was purchased by Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy in the early 1990's. Kenzo perfumes were introduced in 1988 with his biggest hit being the legendary Kenzo Flower perfume.
