Felipe Oliveira is Kenzo’s new creative director

Felipe Oliveira Baptista has just been announced Kenzo’s new creative director. The Portuguese designer will now take on the creativity of the LMVH Group’s brand, after being creative director at Lacoste for eight years.

“Kenzo is freedom and contagious movement”, said the Portuguese designer. “Kenzo’s constant celebration of nature and cultural diversity always was and is the heart of the brand. Two topics that are now more relevant and compelling than ever and that will be essential in the writing of Kenzo’s future”.

Before Felipe, the position was being taken on by the North American duo Carol Lim and Humberto Leon since 2011.
