We couldn’t write about Yohji Yamamoto without mentioning his collaboration with Mandarina Duck. Aptly named Y’s Mandarina, the collection launched last year was the Mandarina Duck’s first collaboration ever. The pieces have all the sensability of MD and the flair of Yamamoto. Fashion, meet Function.
In New York at Yohji Yamamoto, 103 Grand St., NY 10013 / 212 966 9066
Note: It was recently announced that a 2,400-square foot Y’s Mandarina store will open at 98 Greene St. (SoHo) in Fall 2008.
