yohji-1 Yohji Yamamoto is returning to the runway to present his men’s collection and he’s doing it in on his home turf. Despite financial troubles, the designer is planning to show in Tokyo next month with the goal of raising awareness for the Japanese menswear scene. “I… have been [absent from the] Tokyo fashion shows for almost 20 years,” the designer said in a statement, as reported in WWD. “The men’s fashion is suffering in Japan, so I hope to light a fire.” Of course, we will have coverage of the show right here on WATM.
