"Kenzo is a magician of colour. Since the mid-1960s, when he moved from his native Japan to the city of Paris, he has devoted himself to the creation of wearable, vivacious clothing: a fashion without hierarchies. Celebrating youth, pleasure and liberty with a kaleidoscope of colours and brilliant patterning, Kenzo has simultaneously liberated and purified forms, introducing Japanese harmony and rigour to his designs for the Paris catwalk. Kenzo's credo is both simple and true: 'The world is beautiful'. Mixing a decorative array of global influences, from his own Japanese heritage to ancient Rome, from the steppes of Asia to native America, the art of Kenzo is a joyful celebration of life itself."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
