To level accolades upon Yohji is like, as Bob Dylan once said about Leonard Cohen, “pinning a metal on Mount Everest”. He claims himself to not be an artist, he says fashion has never been an art, yet to deny the artistic quality of his work would be to deny what our eyes can undeniably observe. Like an impressionist painter, he exhumes and explores the depth of relatively simple garments (dirty clothes, as he says the Japanese press maligned his early work), taking a form and rendering its function secondary to the emotion he choses to evoke. To this day their remains a "diamond in the rough" quality to his work. He refuses to do all the work for you, where a lazy man sees a wrinkled coat and oversized, strangely buttoned shirt, a man willing to do the work, to interpret this rorschach in his own, may see anything from romanticism to suffering. This refusal to fully answer what exactly you’re looking at has rendered Yohji a favorite of artists and thinkers across the world.

This stunning blazer features an intricate bondage strap system that weaves throughout the inner body and sleeves. The straps are adjustable, and they can morph the silhouette by scrunching the sleeves up if desired. Two straps flow down the backside with black metal O-rings attached. Composed of a lightweight vintage cotton.
