Yohji Yamamoto is a Japanese fashion designer that I’ve known for quite some time but did research on him only recently. He is based in Tokyo and Paris and is known for his avant-garde tailoring featuring Japanese design aesthetics. Yohji’s designs are very unique and often far from what is trending at that moment. His collections are mainly made in black, as the designer has described this colour as ”modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this: “I don’t bother you – don’t bother me”.
I truly admire this designer because he is extraordinary. I’ve never seen another brand with similar garments as to the ones designed by Yohji Yamamoto which is quite rare, since fashion is an industry in which everyone tends to copy each other more or less.
