RIP great designer and good guy. I wore one of his coats for years, a beautiful thing it was.

A very nice photo for this article. He looks great and very happy in his beautiful garden.

Takada-san lived a full life doing what he loved and creating items which made people happy. A life well lived and worthy of celebration.

But it was lowly beginnings: Takada’s first collection at the store called was made entirely out of cotton because he had little money. But the clothes spoke for themselves and a model of his was put on the cover of Elle magazine.

Really inspiring stuff.

While there have been amy number of famous Japanese designers (Koshino, Yamamoto, Miyake...) you have to wonder whether Kenzo would have developed as he did if he hadn't spent most of his life in France.

A shame, he still had many more to give, even at 81.

RIP Kenzo.

Covid is raging in Europe right now - why have the EU failed so dismally to control it?

After this whole thing is gone, the every country in the World should compile a list of all its prominent citizens, artists, athletes taken from us and ask for an apology from China.

Is it WITH COVID or From COVID??? Over 90 % -99% of People died from Old age, NO AUTOPSY Labeled

COVID. The others with Co Morbidities, like late stage Cancer, Overweight,High Cholesterol etc.

The Media Will NEVER tell people what is the True cause of Death or look at it. The Narrative must continue.

There are Viruses not as deadly as portrayed if people are healthy. If you are Old and have multiple Co-Morbidities you can sneeze and Fracture the Ribs and Die. A Cold can send you off. The Coronavirus is in the Family of Colds. If you are unhealthy do something to improve your situation.

He would still be alive of he hasn't caught COVID. This "death with COVID" thing is a very annoying thing that pandemic deniers have picked up.

Rip KENZO. One of the pioneers of introducing Japanese style and fashion to the world.

Covid is getting worse around the world, not better. Dont let any of the loud deniers tell you otherwise. If the EU, UK and US have any smart leaders, they will start pu

If the EU, UK and US have any smart leaders, they will start putting strong restrictions on before winter hits. Time is running out to save lives!

But they haven’t. Whatever number of lives are at stake, they keep the flag of globalized and open economy in their hand and tell you nice fairy tales of soon to be available and distributed vaccines without any side effect. They aren’t smart, they are maximum crazy psychopaths.

Here's an example of a man in my street. About 80 years old. In the last year he had developed a condition that cut down his activities somewhat. But he still walked his dog every day and could often be seen working in his garden. He contracted Covid (from his wife who had contracted it at the doctor's surgery - another story). Ten days after testing positive, he died. I think that pattern is probably typical for older people. I think "from Covid" is an appropriate cause of death. What good would an autopsy do?

Anyway, RIP Kenzo. You brought a lot to many people.

Albaleo, I am sure you are not aware what the doctor's report listed as cause of death?

If he tested positive before he died, don't think there is need for an autopsy.

This is very sad. He was actually a very great guy. RIP.
