Yohji Yamamoto and Edwin Denim, two darlings of the fashion and denim worlds hailing from Japan, have collaborated to bring you Yohji Jeans. Unlike what you may have seen online called Yohji Yamamoto Jeans, this partnership between these coveted Japanese labels offers something more Edwin-centric, if you will. Besides the standard raw indigo jeans, a you’ll also find natural colored jeans, expressing a Yamamoto philosophy of a rebirth in its debut “Naked” collection. We think Yamamoto, a progressive visionary fashion designer, will reign in the stragglers who have resisted the lure of premium denim as a style staple.
The collection is expected to hit shelves in June 2012. Images via Selectism
