KENZO TAKADA guest of honour in Morocco

Designed by Kenzo Takada for Roche Bobois, the collection was presented in Marrakech during a reception held in the presence of the Japanese designer, in one of the magnificent gardens of Dar Moulay Ali.

The Mah Jong created by Kenzo Takada in its 3 harmonious colour schemes, as well as the ceramic collection in deep colours, were situated under the minaret of Koutoubia, a 19th century palace, home to the French General Consul today, and a symbol of the privileged relationship between France and Morocco.

For this special occasion, the Roche Bobois Morocco team worked to create a dreamlike and poetic garden, where flowers, having always been a source of inspiration for Kenzo Takada, were all around.

Kenzo Takada, free and audacious designer, “the most Parisian of Japanese couturiers”, designed an exceptional collection of fabrics and ceramics for Roche Bobois. The graphic and cultural codes which characterise him are found within the collection: the ethnic mix of Orient and Occident, the mastery of colours, the delicacy of the patterns.
