Kenzo Takada

About the Collaborator

Best known for his eponymous fashion label, Kenzo Takada revolutionised the fashion world in the 1970s, bringing lively colour, a new sense of proportion and a cheeky pop sensibility to the industry. After retiring from his fashion house in 1999, in 2005 Takada turned to tableware, home objects and furniture, as well as carpet design for Tai Ping. In his Rêves d’Orient collection for Tai Ping, Takada illustrates the critical intersection between fashion and design, where couture meets custom hand-tufted carpets. The patterns are complex and layered, evoking a luxurious, gracious and fashionable lifestyle.

Rêves d'Orient illustrates the critical intersection between fashion and design, where couture meets custom hand-tufted carpets for residences, hotel and yachts. Takada reinterprets the rug, taking it beyond fashion or home decor, evoking instead a luxurious, gracious, and fashionable lifestyle.

Wools and silks are united in a single weft, creating complex textures that catch the light in different ways. The carpets patterns are complex, with designs layered one on top of the next. Like the designs, the color palette is sensitively calibrated; the layering of numerous colors is so subtle that it gives the initial impression of just a single, complex hue.
