Co-founders of Opening CeremonyCarol Lim and Humberto Leon, are parting ways with French fashion house Kenzo after 8 years. The duo joined the brand in 2011 as the first Asian-American artistic directors in LVMH history.

Lim and Leon have breathed new life into Kenzo and taken Japanese founder Kenzo Takada‘s legacy to new heights with bold concepts, innovative designs and exciting collaborations (think H&M, Vans and New Era). Last year, the fashion house also tapped pop icon Britney Spears to front its La Collection Memento N°2 campaign, photographed by Peter Lindbergh.

The designers will present their final collection for Kenzo during the Men’s Fashion Week in Paris on June 23, and officially part ways with the house on July 1.
