The KENZO Move: new and modern point of view
With the KENZO Move, KENZO Creative Directors, Carol Lim and Humberto Leon have successfully established a new and modern point of view for the French house famed for its rich history of prints and democratic accessibility.
In advance of the arrival in store of the house’s new collection entitled “KENZO – La Collection Memento N°1”, the American duo are excited to announce the launch of their new unisex sneaker, the KENZO Move, with a tiger motif.
The “KENZO – La Collection Memento N°1” revisits archive pieces from the time of the house’s founder Kenzo Takada.
The new “Kenzo – La Collection Memento N° 1” includes the KENZO Move
“With the versatility that sneakers play in everyday life and for all occasions,
we were excited to include the KENZO Move in “La Collection Memento N° 1”.
By using an archival tiger motif and creating the new shape of the sneaker,
we feel like this sneaker is perfectly relevant for today.”

The KENZO Move will retail at EUR 195. Sales will start mid-September.
The sneaker will be available in KENZO stores worldwide, KENZO.com and participating partner stores.
