There are few things Yohji Yamamoto touches that don’t immediately become coveted items in the fashion world. His Spring/Summer 2015 collection of sunglasses follows the same pattern as the multitude of other avant-garde items he’s been producing since 1972 when he began his career. Yamamoto’s chief inspiration for spring was a three-word brief (assumedly written by the designer): “Dramatic, Avant-Garde and Intelligent”; these were the traits Yamamoto wished to communicate in his new eyewear collection. Thus, his assortment is a study in reconstructing through deconstruction and a continuing exploration of the blending of fashion with fine art and architecture.

Each frame bears a geometric shape and design characteristic described as “modern Japanese." Crafted from high-quality metal and acetate, they have a color palette developed by Mazzucchelli specifically for Yamamoto. In order to match the custom acetate body, Christian Dalloz was also tapped to provide bespoke lenses. Impressive.
