(FOR SALE) A pair of Autumn Winter 2020 Yohji Yamamoto x Junji Ito ‘Uzumaki’ Jacquard Knit Shorts.

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.

This particular pair of jacquard shorts from Yohji Yamamoto’s collaboration with Japanese manga artist Junji Ito features his most iconic artwork from Uzumaki. Depicting a girl named Azami is falling victim to the ‘spiral curse’, with the first detail shot capturing her moments before she spins into nothingness. Best suited for a 30-34 inch waist, these culottes are in pristine overall condition with no flaws. Here is the opportunity to purchase a future grail from Yohji Yamamoto’s Autumn Winter 2020 collection.
