Garnering worldwide renown for his mastery of tailoring, innovations in avant-garde design, and adaptability to contemporary clothing, Yohji Yamamoto's fervor for crafting against the grain is as forceful as it was since his brand's inception in Paris in 1981. The defining theme of his womenswear collection Yohji Yamamoto is that they are men's clothes for women. Yamamoto's womenswear collections fulfill his desire to protect women from the gaze of the world, and of men, by wrapping the body around in modest silhouettes, most of which are in his favorite color: black. Minimalist graphics, asymmetry, and sophisticated comfort are breaths of fresh air; new, yet familiar - a subtle junction from today's trends.
