Yohji Yamamoto Man
After graduating, a young Yohji Yamamoto had ideas of becoming a lawyer, but luckily for us, the allure of his mother's dressmaking shop proved to be too appealing. Since launching his eponymous line in Tokyo in 1976, Yohji challenges the conventions of fashion through expressions of nonconformity. His avant-garde silhouettes are rooted in Japanese culture with architectural shapes and elongated silhouettes. Black, as always, underpins his collections, while abstract prints, zippered vents and asymmetric cuts accent the long jackets, wide-leg trousers and oversized shirts. Shop the edit below.
