He and Carol started the Opening Ceremony brand together in 2002. They made their debut KENZO collection for Spring-Summer 2012 and have since been obsessed with telling the story of the brand through their own personal lens, collection after collection. His favorite ice cream: pistachio. His favorite food: his mom, Wendy's, home-cooked-anything. His favorite British Invasion band: Blur. His favorite thing to do in the summer: swim in as many pools, lakes, rivers and oceans as possible.
