In 1981 Yohji Yamamoto presented his first Yohji Yamamoto collection in Paris (Femme).
Yohji Yamamoto puts his own signature on this line which breaks all the codes of traditional elegance. Black is the flag of the collection along with longer lengths, extended proportions and revolutionary accessories.
In 1984 he presented his first Yohji Yamamoto pour Homme collection. The men’s clothes codes are also here transgressed, the white shirt and the black pants, the tee shirt are becoming artists, musicians and intellectuals uniform. Today, they became classics.
Fabric is always the starting point of his design, and the superposition of clothing is what best defines his silhouette.Deconstructed and ample from the onset, Yohji Yamamoto’s clothes evolve through time into something more structured and fitted in a spirit of couture-with-a-twist. All garments are designed, created and sourced in Japan.
