The personal collection of the late fashion designer Kenzo Takada (1939–2020) will be auctioned by Artcurial in Paris on May 11, in collaboration with Christie’s. Founder of his eponymous fashion brand Kenzo, known for its vibrant and floral prints, the designer passed away late last year due to complications from Covid-19. Housed in his Parisian apartment in Left Bank, his collection includes nearly 600 pieces of antiques and contemporary works, Art Deco furniture, more than 100 original wardrobe pieces, the designer’s own artistic creations, and even a large crystal chandelier. Originally hung in Takada’s living room, the chandelier carries an estimate of EUR 4,000–6,000 (USD 4,800–7,300).
