Y’s Yohji Yamamoto

Y’s is Yohji Yamamoto’s very first brand since 1972, and today still represents the core essence of his philosophy. At the root of the brand is the concept for women to wear men’s clothing; clothing for independent women who value their own vision. Functional and dignified everyday wear – within a unique category established by itself, the Y’s collection is shaped by universal values and unique pattern-making. With especial particularity regarding cutting and silhouettes, Y’s utilize the texture of fabrics, undertaking clothes-making that carefully values the feelings of airiness, volume, and balance that is created between the wearer’s body and clothing items by the clothing being worn. This full collection lineup presents high-quality “everyday” ready-to-wear clothing through which Y’s atelier team expresses the brand’s identity.
