People Wear my Clothes to Make a Statement: Yohji Yamamoto

Do you remember when Caroline Bessette became Mrs. Kennedy?  Which designer did she choose to wear?  Yohji Yamamoto.  It was an unexpected choice.  It set her apart.  And the clothes looked amazing on her.  

I have always loved Yamamoto and when I went to Tokyo for the first time, a visit to the Yamamoto store was on the top of my list of Things to Do and See.  (And it was magical: jackets with wired peplums that floated around the body.  And black.  Lots of black.  Though I wandered out with sand colors and blues somehow).

This is an incredible Yohji Yamamoto sweater dress from the 1980s.  It is oversized with a hood in the back.  Yohji's clothes always have a street chic vibe and a play on scale and this is a perfect example of Japanese urban chic.

Why don't you wear it with... Christian Louboutin studded slippers
