Introducing: Womenswear Designer Apu Jan
With pioneering Asian designers among the likes of Rei Kawakubo, Yohji Yamamoto and Issey Miyake, the prominent Eastern influence on the Western design world is by no means a new phenomenon. Yet Jan's recent work has bought a novel, abstract take on the design world.
His success to date...
The Journey of Sylke Golding: From Runway Model to Sealmaiden As a model, she loved "Japanese designers best, Comme de Garçons and of course Yohji Yamamoto were really quite something else," she said. "Later on when I visited Japan, I understood why, what really got to me was their way of making the extraordinary look unassuming and unpretentious."
Lena Dunham Lands Her First 'Vogue' Cover! It seems her love for Comme des Garçons, Yohji Yamamoto, Charlotte Olympia, and Prada may have been influenced by her childhood babysitter, Zac Posen.

Kanye West x Adidas However, it has been rumoured that he will be working alongside iconic Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto and Y-3.
Images of West's now departed Nike collaboration, below, could give some indication of what to expect:
Adidas Y-3 SS14 Cardinal Red Boxing Trainers
Yohji Yamamoto's latest collaboration with Adidas see's the Boxing get a cardinal Red base accented with hints of Blue and White whilst the laces and outsole are given a paint splatter effect. A Leather inlay sole and Leather/fabric
inner lining complete this stunning shoe.
Adidas Y-3 AW13 Grey Sprint Trainers Black Adidas stripes and contrasting white Yohji Yamamoto branding all compliment the all black sole.
However, this wouldnt be a Y-3 trainer without some signature Yohji Yamamoto detailing and a contrasting green trim successfully does this. Place on the heel and lining, the green contrast...
Byronesque's Rare Vintage Pop-Up in New York Additionally, pieces from the personal collection of fashion editor and tastemaker Irene Silvagni will also be available; specifically, those acquired during her post-French Vogue years working alongside Yohji Yamamoto.

Spring Summer 2014 Fashion Week
Yohji Yamamoto likes to surprise, and he did so when his collection suddenly turned flourencent. It wandered back and fourth between his signature black and white looks and vivid color overloads. It seemed a bit confusing, but came together with inspirations like youthful excitement and...
Style Bubble: The Basara Spirit Even more so that Yamamoto, whose name you'll probably know as the man, who dressed David Bowie on his seminal Aladdin Sane 1973 tour, would be returning to London 42 years after his 1971 explosive debut in the city. The Japanese wave of Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto hitting Paris in the...
