Designers Lim and Leon quit French label Kenzo after eight years

The American designers Carol Lim and Humberto Leon are quitting Kenzo, the French fashion label said Friday.

The two Asian-Americans have led the brand founded by Japanese-born creator Kenzo Takada for the last eight years.

The duo, who the brand said had “revitalised it with a series of bold creative ideas that have reverberated throughout the fashion industry”, are leaving to concentrate on US retailer Opening Ceremony, which they set up in 2002.

Korean-American Lim, 44, and Leon, 44, whose mother was Chinese seamstress, will stage their final show for Kenzo during Paris men’s fashion week next Sunday.
