Kenneth Cole is a New York born designer who created the Kenneth Cole Productions, Inc in 1982. Kenneth Cole love for design developed through his childhood as his father owned a shoe manufacturing company and he sought to follow in his footsteps by launching his own company. The company was a great success as it ventured into menНs and womenНs clothing and went public in 1994 upon which it gained Forbes recognition as one of the 200 Small Companies. Kenneth Cole however didnНt launch a fragrance until 2002 when Kenneth Cole for Men and Kenneth Cole for Women were launched. The launch was a success and has since expanded to over 17 perfumes offered under Reaction, Kenneth Cole and New York labels. A brand perfect for both young and mature men out there.
