Kenzo……..THEN………

In the 1970′s Paris fashion experienced it’s most lasting fashion revolution with YSL, Karl Lagerfeld, Sonia Rykiel, Ungaro….. the new establishment in place….the white gloves were off….and in came the fun, which still remains, amongst those who added the newness was Kenzo……with his label JAP, and his love of colour, knitwear and prints…. Paris in the seventies became a colourful romance, envisioned by a Japanese man that wasn’t afraid to bring his culture and to rework a whole new way of modern dressing…..on retirement not too long ago, there was a dedicated show at the Bercy Stadium in Paris, to celebrate his history and influence with former models and staff, a credit to him, for in his 40 years of making fashion happen, he never lost that sense of fun……
