Season Coverage

This collection is easily one of the most iconic and recognizable Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme collections. Distinguishable looks are the CGI characters and rave-inspired prints produced by Saeko Tsuemura, well-known for her work featured in Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme, Autumn/Winter 1991. Interestingly enough, no one had mentioned this part of the collection explicitly at the presentation time. However, one critic noted that Yohji's unique sense of humor added to the relaxed aspect of the collection. The prints of Japanese actresses from the early Showa period were heavily covered instead, and Japanese fashion critics even noted those were quite popular with Western journalists. What is more, one of the essential elements from this season is the extensive use of denim. It is rarely mentioned nowadays, but it was quite a drastic choice for Yohji Yamamoto, as denim had barely appeared in his earlier collections.
