Kenzo is a French fashion brand, created by the Japanese Kenzo Takada. In 1970, Kenzo Takada created a fashion house in Paris called Jungle Jap. He was then part of this new wave of designers who relied on the counter-culture of the 60s and 70s, to create a new fashion, more creative, more popular, less formatted. In 1980, Jungle Jap became Kenzo. 10 years after its creation, the brand is a key player in Parisian fashion, being part of the group of designers who gave Paris its legitimacy as a fashion capital. Since 1993, the brand has belonged to the famous Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton group (LVMH) and has diversified by also offering leather goods, eyewear, perfumes, jewellery and watches...

Kenzo and the environment
Today the Kenzo brand belongs to the very famous LVMH group, which on its website, displays an ethical and environmental charter. According to LVMH, all of the group's brands are committed to preserving and respecting the natural resources used in the manufacture of their products. The group is also socially committed to respecting each person and their uniqueness. And all the group's brands and partners are committed to being a lever for social and professional integration, and to having a positive social impact.
In 2014, to show its commitment to the environment, the Kenzo brand created a capsule collection, with all proceeds going to the British ocean protection association Blue Marine. Displayed exclusively in its ephemeral boutique in Paris, Kenzo set up an experience where each item sold made a virtual fish appear in a digital aquarium. An interesting way to draw attention to the ecological urgency of the oceans, but also to create a buzz by inviting buyers to share their purchase on the networks with the hashtag #nofishnonothing.
On the other hand, in 2016, the magazine Capital reported a controversy about the manufacturing of Kenzo clothes. Originally made in France, they were now said to be manufactured in the suburbs of Krakow, without this change having any impact on their price or their "made in France" mention.
