Since 1972, Yohji Yamamoto has been spreading his revolutionary, ever widening sphere of influence. Driven by his desire to create anti-fashion through fashion his designs are avant-garde, yet timeless. Renowned for blurring the boundary between fashion and the arts, he has influenced theatrical and cinematic fashion, and his work has been exhibited worldwide.
The Yohji Yamamoto eyewear collection takes inspiration from his original three-word brief: “Dramatic, Avant Garde and/or Intelligent”
The result is an intriguing collection of spectacles and sunglasses that are at the same time challenging and glamorous; avant-garde and original.
This beguiling collection investigates reconstruction through deconstruction. Is an exploration in depth of colour and an expression of Yamamoto’s rebellious spirit, his love of form, his skill in fit and cut.
“Black is modern and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious”
