Based in Tokyo and Paris, Yohji Yamamoto is the perfect example of a sartorial innovator. Never conventionally trendy, Yamamoto’s clothing, shoes and perfume are for the true style aficionado. Textured jackets, voluminous, flowing fabrics, and a somber palette define the Yohji Yamamoto look, which is filtered through his eponymous label and its sibling, Y's Yohji Yamamoto. Given its lively, avant-garde spirit, Yohji Yamamoto’s envelope-pushing label has become a favorite among critics and non-professional admirers alike. In addition to his own work, Yamamoto has collaborated with the brands Adidas (Y-3), Hermès, and Mikimoto and with artists as diverse as Sir Elton John, Placebo, and Takeshi Kitano.
Aside from its ultra-feminine appeal, the beauty of the everyday dress lies in its throw-on-and-go ease. From pretty, printed frocks to neutral dresses perfect for the office — by Tart, Tocca, and others — these stunners require little more than tights, a chic pair of heels, and a cool fall jacket to make you look perfectly put together.
