Yohji Yammamoto Backless Deconstructed Vest
There is not really an easy way to describe a Yohji piece, other than saying it's a Yohji piece. His work defies definition and that is why his pieces are cherished by collectors and museums alike across the globe. This is more of a jacket with it's sleeves removed than it is a vest. Made of wool with a tall collar and heavy metal zipper. the back has been sewn open creating a reverse bare-midriff look. the shoulder panel falls as an architectural cape concealing a buckle which holds the vest in place across the front of the body. Such complex construction for such a clean lined piece could only come from the master himself.
Designer: YOHJI YAMAMOTO.
