In 2001, the brand KEN OKADA PARIS was born.
In 2005, the first Ken Okada boutique opened its doors in the heart of Paris, in the Saint Germain district. With its refined and magical look, this secret Parisian place has become a unique concept-shop. Ken OKADA's collections are sold in major department stores: Takashima NY, Galeries Lafayettes Haussmann, Citadium and prestigious boutiques recognized internationally - Milan, New York, Kuwait, Melbourne, Berlin, Tokyo, etc.
In 2009, the exhibition "The history of the Ken Okada shirt" at Galeries Lafayettes Haussmann made the brand realize that it had become the reference for modern shirts. The success is there. Since then, the brand has specialized in designer shirts. Numerous collaborations with the Hotel Lutétia, Toyota, Repetto, Radio France, the Paris Opera, the creation of uniforms for the Galeries Lafayette Haussmann sales staff, glowing reviews in the press - Elle, L'Officiel, L'Express, Madame Figaro... -, artistic projects in the film industry and spectacular fashion shows, all highlight the brand's unique creations over the years.
In 2021, the brand celebrates its 20th anniversary, reinvents itself to surprise consumers and always offer innovation and novelty with the ambition to continue to adorn Parisian women and lovers of the brand around the world for many years to come. "The Art of the Shirt" marks a new era in the history of the Ken OKADA brand.
KEN OKADA PARIS is a designer brand that has specialized in high-end, chic, modern and timeless shirts for 20 years. A delicate alliance of Parisian elegance and Japanese purity which is aimed at a business woman, an active, refined, cultured and fashion conscious woman. The Ken OKADA woman is ambitious, bold, independent and concerned about her appearance.
The brand wishes to bring her confidence and power through the following promise: create costumes for superheroines and ensure the victory of super chicks! The KEN OKADA PARIS brand plays on the paradox of masculine/feminine, delicacy/power, and timelessness/originality.
This paradox is reflected in the color codes, combining powder pink and charcoal gray. The pink represents the origins of the designer from Tokyo, through the magical landscapes formed by the blossoming of the sakura, the Japanese cherry tree, symbol of the brand's softness. The grey color is inspired by Parisian and modernist architecture, the poetry of rain, reflecting the modern subtlety of KEN OKADA PARIS.
MADE IN PARIS - MADE IN EUROPE
The design of the models is made in the Parisian workshop of the brand and in Portugal. The materials are of French and Italian origin, our sourcing reflects a search for very high quality.
KEN OKADA PARIS makes it a point of honor to preserve the excellent craft techniques of handmade pieces.
The design and innovation of each Ken OKADA piece marks their difference and strength. Exposed darts, musketeer cuffs and an officer's collar and the officer's collar are the brand's couture signature.
Inspired by the spirit of sophistication, Ken Okada's greatest asset is subtlety. The attention to detail and precision is a testament to this.
A timeless yet modern style with a line of premium shirts with strong lines.
