We thought he was immortal, japanese designer kenzo takada passed away on sunday 4th october 2021 as a result of covid.this colour magician was skilled in mixing prints and cultures.we met him during the release of work retracing his life and professional career.he had said goodbye to fashion but not to the party. in february 2019 he celebrated, in a joyful atmosphere, his 81st birthday, surrounded by his friends, with his legendary smile.interview kenzo takada:i grew up in japan just after the war and there was nothing. the only thing we had were films, so i watched many american films, and i started to draw, at the time saint laurent was starting, he was my idol so i watched what he did for dior and for his own brand saint laurent, it was incredible, it made me dream. in 1965, i wanted to spend 6 months in paris, and by chance i found a job, in 1970 i had the opportunity to open a shop and straight after i was on the front cover of elle. this was when it all started.when i decided to stop in 2000, it was hard at first. i really missed it. but the fashion industry never stops, you always have to be available to work each season, i think the profession has changed a lot and all this technology is crazy!i am happy, i love parties, and i don’t think i do enough…music free of rights: al bosque by tomas novoa artlist
