Summary

Summary

The mention of Kenzo immediately brings to mind an explosion of color. This extraordinary use of color was, for Kenzo, an expression of his notion of liberty -- his unexpected juxtapositions, patchworks, and prints breaking old rhythms and creating new harmonies. Born and educated in Japan, Kenzo was continually inspired by his heritage.

Contemplating the simple refinement of Japanese garments, he eliminated the restrictive elements of Western design, using the clean cut of the kimono to give space to the body, a sensation of volume, and above all, freedom.
