About

The KENZO Eyewear collection is recognized for its kaleidoscopic variation of colors and bright prints - each design is ultra-modern and daring acting as a total celebration of nature and cultural diversity. Echoing the fluorescent check suits and patterned dresses from the brand’s iconic silhouettes, the sun and optical styles feature bold, eye-catching details and lifelike colors. Since the traditions and roots have always played an important role to the brand, its logo remained unchanged for over fifty years, and only was redesigned in 2020, still keeping the original idea and concept, but showing it in a modern way. That is why, each pair of glasses within the collection features the iconic KENZO logo on the temple.

Since Fall 2021, KENZO has embarked on a new chapter in its history with the appointment of Nigo as the House’s new Artistic Director. Now, the KENZO Eyewear Collection perfectly reflects the creative energy of the fun, forward-thinking and effortlessly cool brand. Celebrating iconic eyewear silhouettes while playing with colorful Havanas inspired from the vintage archives of the Maison, Nigo masterfully mixes Japanese and Western influences with traditions, opening an innovative design chapter for KENZO. The frames are offered in subtle black and brown colors perfect for completing your everyday look. Yet, at the same time, the range offers spectacles that are totally emblematic of the KENZO brand’s vibrant spirit fusing electric styles that are dynamically inspired by science fiction.

History

The world-famous fashion brand KENZO was founded in 1970 by Kenzo Takada, a Japanese fashion designer, who was inspired by Paris, the city where he lived and worked in since 1965. Started as Jungle Jap, a boutique at Galerie Vivienne where the founder sold his handmade women's collection, KENZO has quickly gained recognition and popularity among Parisian elites. In 1983, the brand presented its first men’s ready-to-wear collection, followed by kids and home collections in 1987. From a printed dress and men’s polo shirt to a sweatshirt for kids, every KENZO piece embodied high energy and enthusiasm. Since 1993, Kenzo has been owned by the French luxury goods company LVMH, the multinational conglomerate specializing in luxury goods.

In July 2011, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon were appointed Creative Directors of KENZO. Using the brand’s DNA, the duo has given the fashion house their take on the bold spirit with which the brand was founded. The designers’ passion for fun and spontaneity has given KENZO a fresh attitude with respect for the unique heritage of the House. In 2021, KENZO appointed Nigo, an extremely talented Japanese designer, as Artistic Director of Maison. By mixing Western and Japanese influences with the brand’s traditions, Nigo opened a new design chapter for KENZO. The creativity and innovation of the new designer as well as his attachment to the history of the House results in outstanding collections, revolutionary and eclectic.
