Kansai Yamamoto '70s Faces Logo Turtleneck Sweater


Kansai Yamamoto was the designer du jour for David Bowie throughout the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. He conceptualized several looks quintessential to the visual lexicon of Bowie’s career, including the Ziggy Stardust tour outfits. Kansai also designed the asymmetric striped body suit which appeared on the back of the "Station to Station" cover, and rather tragically once more in Bowie’s “Lazarus” music video. His reign was relatively short-lived due to the high production costs and limited releases, which led to a slashing of budgets, and in turn a decline in quality and creative spark in the mid ‘80s.

This piece hails from the fruitful era before this occurred, and features the brand’s nameless female logo, who often appeared on tags, sometimes merely as a pair of eyes, but rarely on any garments from Kansai’s original line.
