Japanese fashion design Kenzo Takada has died of the corona virus. A spokesperson reported this to the French press agency AFP. The designer lent his first name to his own clothing label, which is known for its signature tiger prints and daring color combinations.

The designer died at the age of 81 in Paris, the city where he lived and worked almost his entire career. In recent years, however, he was no longer working for his own brand. Kenzo is one of the first Japanese designers to succeed in forcing a fashion breakthrough in the French capital. To this day he is considered one of the most famous Japanese designers.

Kenzo Takada was born in Japan in 1939, near Osaka. Passionate about fashion, he moved to France in the mid-1960s. In 1970 he made his debut with his first collection in Paris. A few years later, he also founded his own clothing brand, Kenzo, which immediately sold like hot cakes. A perfume line will also follow later.

In the 90s the designer sells his brand on to LVMH, not much later he leaves his own fashion house. On Sunday, October 4, Kenzo died in a corona ward of a hospital in Paris, where the fashion weeks are now in full swing.
