(FOR SALE) An Autumn Winter 2012 Yohji Yamamoto ‘69’ Graphic Wool Knit Sweater. 

Yohji Yamamoto’s interest in fashion peaked at an early age, exposed to the creation of garments through his mother’s work as a dressmaker. Yamamoto attended Keio University in 1966, not for fashion but instead to pursue a career in law. Shortly after his graduation, Yamamoto realized his heart was far more invested in fashion than pursuing a traditional career. Yohji Yamamoto asked to apprentice alongside his mother at the dressmaking shop, learning to sew from assistants and later joining Bunka Fashion College, one of the most esteemed programs for fashion in Japan. Maintaining relevancy and building his eponymous label for over fifty years, Yohji Yamamoto pioneered an avant-garde anti-fashion aesthetic, draping his signature noir looks with incredible detail to cut. To this day, Yamamoto remains one of the best active designers from generations past, continuing to perfect his craft.

Yohji Yamamoto’s cheeky sexual innuendos have made appearances on multiple pieces, some much more vulgar than this, releasing an ‘Eat My Ass’ slogan tank top for Spring Summer 2014. This particular graphic sweater features a simplistic 69 graphic across the front, accompanied by an embroidered Y.Y. initial branding above bottom right hem. Coming in a size medium, this piece is in pristine overall condition. Here is the opportunity to purchase a massive sample grail from Yohji Yamamoto’s Autumn Winter 2012 collection.
