Yohji Yamamoto is a Japanese fashion designer based in Tokyo and Paris. Considered a master tailor, he is known for his avant-garde tailoring featuring Japanese design aesthetics.
Yamamoto has won notable awards for his contributions to fashion, including the Chevalier of Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, Medal of Honor with Purple Ribbon, the Ordre national du Mérite, the Royal Designer for Industry and the Master of Design award by Fashion Group International.
Y's is Yamamoto's very first brand, and to this day it bears his vision and 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.
Each piece is created through careful selection of material and precise pattern making, to achieve a refined silhouette. The brand values the importance of the space between the garment and the body for a balanced volume. Y's continues to propose its unique category of clothing: functional daily wear with elegance.
