Yohji Yamamoto continues to expand his collaborative roster, as the famed Japanese designer can now add Lamborghini to his resume. Yamamoto is currently teasing a joint foray with the Italian luxury car brand, having shared two cryptic images leading up to the full reveal.
The first Yohji Yamamoto x Lamborghini teaser finds a co-branded Lamborghini badge done up in black and grey, while the second incorporates red and white streaks over-top a black base. Various kanji and katakana characters are then featured throughout. Some suspect the latter image to be connected to a custom body wrap by Yamamoto, although this has yet to be confirmed.
Yamamoto is an admitted lover of classic automobiles. In the past, he has expressed disinterest in modern car design, so his Lamborghini collab could possibly center around a vintage model. 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.”
Yohji Yamamoto's anticipated Lamborghini collab is expected to be revealed in full sometime in October.
