Having long-established a reputation as the curators of cool in New York, Tokyo, and London, college buds turned Opening Ceremony shop owners took over as the creative directors of Kenzo in the Fall of 2011. “That first collection for Kenzo holds a special place in our hearts,” says Lim. “It was a moment of realization that we were actually full participants in the world of Paris fashion.” The well-received debut, a mash of Japanese streetwear blended with Parisian panache, has fared well for the friends from UC Berkeley and certainly for the LVMH-backed brand. Their pied piper personalities dovetail perfectly with the label-loving hipster they tend to attract.
