Takeo Kikuchi (菊池 武夫, Kikuchi Takeo, born May 25, 1939) is a famous Japanese industrial and fashion designer. He designs such things as spectacle frames and chronographs in addition to clothing.

In 2004, he bowed out from designing his own self-named brand, entrusting creative direction to Taishi Nobukuni, a graduate of London's St. Martin's College.[citation needed] The rejuvenated label has regained some of its former glory with a funky mix of 1970s vintage looks and contemporary street styling a huge commercial and critical success.[citation needed]
