Autumn & Winter 2012/2013 Collection by Yohji Yamamoto

Yohji Yamamoto (Yamamoto Yoji), born in Tokyo at 1946 is a Japanese fashion designer based in Tokyo and Paris. Yamamoto is among the master tailor whose work in thought to be of genius and has been described as probably the only designer you could name who has 60 years olds who think he's incredible and 17 years olds who think he's way cool.

Yamamoto graduated from Keio University with a degree in law in 1966. His further studies in fashion design at Bunka Fashion College led to a degree in 1969. His more prestigious awards for his contribution to fashion include the Japanese Medal of Honor, the Ordre national du Merite, the Royal Designer for Industry and the Master of Design award by Fashion Group International.

Yamamoto is known for avant-garde spirit in his clothing, frequently creating designs far removed from current trends. His signature oversized silhouettes in black often feature drapery in varying textures. Wikipedia.
