KENZO's new collection delves into the fashion house's rich history, and features various brand icons, including the memento tiger which Kenzo Takada first developed in the 1970s. As such, KENZO's creative directors Humberto Leon and Carol Lim said on Facebook that Britney Spears is an icon who fits the Memento project "perfectly".
