about

In 1981, Yohji Yamamoto presented his first Yohji Yamamoto collection in Paris and in 1984, he followed with his first Yohji Yamamoto pour Homme collection.

Fabric is always the foundation of his design and the superposition of clothing is what best defines his silhouette

Yohji Yamamoto's style was destructured and ample at the beginning, evolving through time into a more structured, fitted silhouette in a spirit of couture -with- a- twist.

The Look

Yamamoto is an uncompromising non-traditionalist Designer. He swathes and wraps the body in Unstructured, loose, voluminous garments, Similar in style and philosophy to those of Rei Kawakubo. Many of his clothes have additional flaps, pockets and straps.
He is now famous for his minimalist, all-black clothing, perfect for those in search of 'no frills' formal garments.
The Y’s collection for women reflected typical men's garments, as the clothes were cut in uncluttered shapes with washed fabrics and dark colors. These clothes expressed a functional elegance and sobriety that Yohji Yamamoto would reaffirm a few years later with Y's for men.
Today, Y's and Y's for men have taken their place as practical, day-to-day wear beyond the bounds of fashion and shifting trends.
