Yohji Yamamoto continues to expand his collaborative roster (which already includes Hublot, adidas, and Supreme), most recently adding Lamborghini to his resume. Yamamoto has been promoting a joint foray with the Italian luxury car brand, and we've just got our first look at the new whip. Take a look for yourself in the gallery above.
The legendary Japanese fashion designer announced the collaboration, perhaps his biggest to date, last month and since then speculation surrounding the partnership has run rife. Now we know that the collab will feature an Aventador S that has been "dressed" by Yamamoto.
Below, we've broken down everything we know about Yamamoto's Lamborghini. And we'll be adding details as they emerge so stay tuned for the latest updates and announcements.
What inspired the Yohji Yamamoto Lamborghini Collaboration collaboration?
Yamamoto is an admitted lover of classic automobiles. In the past, he has expressed disinterest in modern car design. According to the designer, the collaboration will reflect the “tradition” and “DNA” of both brands, as the result will ultimately be a “piece of art.”
What will Yohji Yamamoto's Lamborghini Collaboration look like?
The first Yohji Yamamoto x Lamborghini teaser, which came out in late September, saw a co-branded Lamborghini badge done up in black and grey, while the second incorporated red and white streaks over-top a black base. Various kanji and katakana characters also featured throughout. We now know that initial suspicions were correct.
The Aventador S wrap takes queues from Yamamoto's fall 2020 collection, borrowing from its punk red plaids, dots, and stripes.
In addition to the vehicle, Lamborghini and Yamamoto are also teaming up on an apparel collection, featuring a coat, bomber jacket, and hoodie.
When will Yamamoto's Lamborghini Collaboration debut?
The exact release date has yet to be revealed.
