    Fun fact: Did you know that Kenzo Takada's designs first sparked in the '70s at a Parisian boutique named Jungle Jap? Well, for their spring '13 runway parade, creative directors of the line (and co-owners of our beloved Opening Ceremony) Carol Lim and Humberto Leon tapped that trivia with a show full of wild prints worthy of one very chic excursion into the wild.
