Inspired by the many hooks that close dresses from the 16th century onwards, Yohji Yamamoto (born in 1943) uses this closure as a decoration. Since its inception, the Japanese designer has had a particular and tender interest in the back of the garment: "I can only see a passer-by, a person who disappears. I think clothes should be made from the back, not the front. »
This ensemble is completed by numerous removable claws that send a special message to the viewer who follows the back of the woman wearing them.
"I like the line of women's backs.", says Yohji Yamamoto in 2011. "I always look at their silhouettes in the street. I'm in pursuit of a silhouette. If she turns around, it's all over. Really finished. That's why I'm pursuing his back silhouette."
