Yohji Yamamoto Y's For Men Reversible Floral Blazer


Yohji claims 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 reject what our eyes can plainly observe. Like an impressionist painter, he exhumes the depth of relatively simple subjects (dirty clothes, as the Japanese press branded his early work), in turn rendering their form secondary to the emotion he choses to evoke. Like any emotion, there’s an ephemeral sense conjured in viewing his work, and no concrete answer left in that feeling’s place. He refuses to do the work for you, where a lazy man sees a wrinkled coat, one willing to ponder the rorschach presented may conclude he is viewing anything from romanticism to suffering. This refusal to dumb down his work into easily digestible statements has rendered Yohji a favorite of artists and thinkers across the world. 

The relaxed and rakish silhouette cut by this unstructured, three-button, notch-label blazer is uniquely at home within the canon of Yohji’s work. This piece showcases his oft-neglected playful streak, expressed here in the vivid pink floral print hidden within the sleeves of the subdued blazer. It is intended to be worn inside out, to showcase the print.

Condition: 9/10. No significant flaws.
