Kenzō Takada (27 February 1939 - 4 October 2020) was a Japanese-French fashion designer. He founded Kenzo, a worldwide brand of perfumes, skincare products, and clothes, and was the acting honorary president of the Asian Couture Federation.

Rêve après rêve is a film directed and written by fashion designer Kenzo Takada.


Kenzō was, with Sonia Rykiel, one of most innovative fashion designers in 1970s France. The undisputed star of Parisian fashion in the 1970s, Kenzo drew his inspiration from all over the world, mixing Western and Oriental folk influences with a fantastic joie de vivre and an instinctive understanding of what his young customers wanted.

With his fluid lines, unusual prints, clever accessories, and finery that was hitherto unprecedented in ready-to-wear, he very much turned the fashion world upside down.
