Humberto Leon and Carol Lim are leaving Kenzo this month. The designers, who have served as the brand's creative directors for eight years, will leave the French label to focus on Opening Ceremony, their other joint venture.

The designer duo will present their final collection for Kenzo on 23 June during Paris Men's Fashion Week, before officially leaving the brand on 1 July. Leon and Lim were responsible for the brand's repositioning, which they fulfilled. During their travels, they performed various collaborations with affordable brands, including Vans and H&M. They were also praised for their support of diversity on the catwalk and for their inventive fashion shows, which often incorporated live music and even theatre.

"Humberto and Carol have always brought diversity and inclusion to the forefront of Kenzo, using their collections, fashion shows, advertising and special projects to engage a new generation of creatives," Kenzo chief executive Sylvie Colin said in a statement. "They've always addressed everything they do through the lens of customer experience and pioneered a modern vision of what it's like to be a creative director. We wish them all the best in their new adventures."

Kenzo will name the Leon and Lim's successor soon. For now, have a look at their vibrant creations for Kenzo during their 8-year tenure below:
