Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme Metal Wire Quarter-Zip Sweater - AW95


    When asked the question is fashion art, Yohji Yamamoto has consistently stated that “they are just clothes”. This philosophy encompasses his design ethos, which has been praised by many as works of art. The designer’s skepticism towards the industry has informed his collections since his first debut at Paris Fashion Week in 1983. Back then the young Japanese upstart was seen as radical in many circles, his all-black color palette and baggy proportions shocked the establishment and launched the new wave of “anti-fashion” designers that would go on to subvert cultural and gender expectations in the west. Born the son of a dressmaker, Yohji always thought of his work as a family trade and continues to uphold these values today. For years the designer has been interested in how clothes drape over the female form and has stated numerous times how his more conservative garments are used as a shield that at once liberates and protects its wearer. This sweater is done in a wool and stainless steel wire blend that gives the garment a slight shimmer throughout. Quarter-zip closure and form-fitting raglan cut.
