The house of Kenzo opened in 1970, in the Galerie Vivienne nearby the Palais Royale in Paris. The creator and fonder, Kenzo Takada, quickly became one of the main precursors of the seventies. He livened up the couture rules by charming with coloured, merry, spontaneous, poetic creations and by bringing a new freshness. Takada retired in 1999, and in 2003 Antonto Marras became artistic director of the women’s line. He gave new life to the brand, remaining close to its sources. In 2008, Marras was appointed head of the whole artistic directorship of Kenzo where he remains today.
