— by Rosemary Feitelberg: In New York for the U.S. launch of his self-titled book, the designer buzzed by Barneys for lunch and checked out Hedi Slimane’s designs at Celine.

Tuesday night’s understated book signing for Kenzo Takada at the Fashion Institute of Technology was just his style.

About 50 guests were invited to the FIT Foundation’s low-key event at the school’s Art & Design gallery. Stateside for a three-day stay, the Paris-based designer planned to return to campus Wednesday afternoon for an informal chat with students. Known for his inclusive approach to fashion that incorporates multicultural influences with exacting techniques, Takada did not wish to judge the students’ designs — to avoid dissuading them in any way.
