An architect of black since 1981, when he presented his first collection, Yohji Yamamoto has never stopped working on this colour in all its shades.

This t-shirt is covered with a long black draped fault dress. Both the material and the technique refer to the work of the fault in French couture in the late 1940s, both at Madame Grès and Cristobal Balenciaga.
