YOHJI YAMAMOTO A/W 1990/91 Black Wool Swirl Dress Size XS-S

4500 EUR

Without doubt this dress from the A/W 1990/91 collection is one of Yohji Yamamotos's most important pieces. The red version of this dress was part of the 2011 exhibition "Yohji Yamamoto at the Victoria and Albert Museum", and similar models reside in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Kyoto Costume Institute. This dress is made of a fine and lightweight black wool fabric, a one-piece with fitted bodice that has four large hoops incorporated into the asymmetrical skirt which results in a very unique three-dimensional and somewhat distorted shape. The dress closes with a concealed silver-tone metal zipper and a metal hook & eye at the back. 100% wool, silky black lining. Made in France.
