Kenzo Takada’s miso soup

Wallpaper - - March -

Al­most five decades after he burst onto the fash­ion scene with Ja­panese-in­spired, au­da­ciously pat­terned tex­tiles, Kenzo Takada con­tin­ues to draw in­spi­ra­tion from his home coun­try – last year fes­toon­ing Roche Bobois’ ‘Mah Jong’ sofa in ki­mono-like jacquard pat­terns, and de­vel­op­ing cush­ions and vases to match. Like the de­signer him­self, his recipe is the pride of Ja­pan. ‘I love miso soup,’ he de­clares. ‘It’s a mix of com­plex­ity and sim­plic­ity. It is easy to eat, and can ac­com­pany many foods, or sim­ply be served with a bowl of rice.’ For Takada’s recipe, visit Wall­pa­per.com∏
