Yohji Yamamoto x Max Vadukul: Y’s 1972
Not too many people know that Yohji Yamamoto’s first lined was named Y’s. Through the decades, after his Parisian debut, Yohji Yamamoto used his full name for his runway lines, with Y’s becoming sort of an everyday classic Yohji uniform – white poplin, black gabardine, a bit less extreme, but still very Yohji. But before that moment, Y’s was Yohji. The line was born in 1972, and to celebrate its 50th anniversary, or rather to “look back upon 50 years of its history,” as per the press release, Yamamoto will be releasing a capsule t-shirt collection this fall.
