    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Japanese fashion designer Kenzo Takada, founder of the Kenzo brand, has passed away at age of 81 after contracting COVID-19, media reported Sunday.

    French newspaper Le Monde cited the world-renowned fashion designer's spokesman as saying that he died at the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine outside Paris.

    Kenzo had made a name for himself in France throughout the 1970s with his eponymous fashion brand.

    He sold the brand to luxury conglomerate LVMH in the early 1990s but has remained a prominent figure in the fashion circles.
