The House of KENZO was founded in Paris in 1970 by Takada Kenzo. Kenzo, a native of Himeji, Japan, attended Tokyo’s prestigious Bunka Fashion College as one of its first male students before making the move from Tokyo to Paris, where he opened his first boutique, ‘Jungle Jap’. He surprised the fashion world with his originality and the apparent celebration of diverse cultures, nature and colors in his designs.

Kenzo joined the LVMH group in 1993. For LVMH, an environmentally-sound approach is closely linked to their values and businesses. The company is committed to preserving landscapes, protecting biodiversity and ensuring consumer health by having harmless production methods. LVMH have provided a framework for this goal. They have drawn up a global charter that defines environmental protection criteria and goals. As part of LVMH’s core management organisation, an Environmental Affairs Department works every day to spread the special culture of the environmental impact assessment, coordinates actions and encourages all of its subsidiaries to adopt the best ecological practices at all levels of production. They particularly strive to reduce waste, use water sparingly and control energy use.

To ensure effective environmental control, the companies of LVMH are conducting an awareness program with their suppliers and subcontractors. Through systematic environmental requirements, Kenzo Mode ensures its fabric suppliers to comply with regulations governing nitrogen dyes and the use of nickel.

In 2010, Kenzo Parfums received the Eco-Emballages eco-packaging award for the environmentally-friendly refills created for the iconic FlowerbyKenzo fragrance. These refills reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 66% compared to the glass bottle, giving Kenzo another opportunity to demonstrate that nature figures at the core of its identity.
