Yohji Yamamoto

Yohji Yamamoto is a Japanese designer and master tailor based in both Tokyo and Paris. Yamamoto is noted for his avant-garde tailoring and creating pieces that break the mould of the current trends. Yohji Yamamoto’s men’s collections arrived in Paris in 1981, after the Tokyo designer launched his namesake line in 1976. With his vision in protecting women’s bodies, Yamamoto dove into menswear that is also wearable for women. His collections consist of monochromatic and signature oversized silhouettes that feels customized on the person who wears them.
