Using the zips to create the K twists these classically inspired pieces to forge originality that is quintessentially KENZO.

The Zygomaticus, or the set of 17 smile muscles, was the obvious choice to wrap up our KENZOPEDIA.
Kenzo Takada was known for his beaming smile and his ability to switch from laughter to intense concentration from one second to the next. These days, his successors Carol and Humberto are adept at working their zygomaticus and that of everyone they meet. Fun is an attitude, a mood and a way of grasping fashion.
