Here at mytheresa.com, we cannot get enough of Kenzo's fun-loving and energetic shoes. From electric coloured sneakers to jungle inspired espadrilles, the Parisian brand has perfected playful yet tasteful designs. Kenzo footwear is an excellent choice for anyone who yearns to infuse enthusiasm into their closet.
THE CHRONICLE OF KENZO
The origin of the brand dates back to 1970 when the Japanese designer Kenzo Takada opened his first boutique called 'Jungle Jap' in Paris. It was there he laid the grounds for a spectacular fashion emporium. The Kenzo we know and love today is also due to a great contribution of work from Humberto Leon and Carol Lim, the owners of Opening Ceremony, who in 2011 were appointed creative directors of the label.
The dynamic and spirited brand manufacturers an array of exceptional clothing, shoes and accessories that are often worn by fashion icons such as Jourdan Dunn and Alexa Chung. Kenzo's shoes in particular draw inspiration from Japanese culture through the usage of vibrant tones and chunky soles.
ENERGISE YOUR WARDROBE
Your beach attire need not be complicated, just colour-block with a delightful Missoni bikini, finished with a pair of Kenzo tiger espadrilles and statement sunglasses. As the day draws to a close and you're either admiring the sunset or strolling a cobbled street in search of tapas and a glass of wine, then switch your swimsuit for a simple summer dress and similarly style with a pair of canvas shoes.
The refreshing Japanese brand also offers a selection of everyday runners which work astonishingly when heading to the city for a spot of brunch. Dress a pair of Kenzo sneakers with skinny jeans and an oversized knit for a refined yet cosy attire. Alternatively, if sporty footwear isn't for you then opt for a pair of the brand's charming ankle boots.
We must not forget to underline how functional a pair of slip-on platforms are, not only do they add height to your attire they also make a remarkable accessory when trying to achieve an urban, sophisticated look.
