Yohji Yamamoto Y's For Men AW2010 Reversible Sukajan


To level accolades upon Yohji is like, as Leonard Cohen once said about Bob Dylan, “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 plainly observe. Like an impressionist painter, he exhumes and explores the depth of relatively simple garments (dirty clothes, the Japanese press branded his early work), taking a form and rendering its function secondary to the emotion he choses to evoke. To this day there 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 consider the rorschach presented to him 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 bomber features a lush, black velvet on one side, with a shiny orange rayon on the other. The black velvet front displays skull embroidery on the chest and backside, calling back to iconic souvenir jacket imagery popularized by American soldiers in the post-WWII era.
