In the same way, recent designs of Yohji Yamamoto have a reference to his Spring/Summer 1996 collection.

Yohji Yamamoto’s Replica line - a reference to designer's Spring Summer 1996 menswear collection.

The Replica line by Yohji Yamamoto continues to highlight some of his most popular designs, bringing back main pieces from the Spring/Summer 1996 menswear collection by the renowned designer. Dominated by colorful flower prints and embroidery, the collection displays the designer's passion for the peony, phoenix flower, and sunflower. The runway show was also for Yohji, who had hired a slew of teenage boys to flaunt the collection, a rare spectacle. It was as if these young guys were wearing revamped versions of their father's wardrobes, floating in bulky, flower-clad garments that played thematically into Yohji 's passion for androgynous-leaning models.

Yohji Yamamoto’s Replica line - a reference to designer's Spring Summer 1996 menswear collection.

Here you can find four styles of coats, four pairs of trousers and three shirts of the Yohji Yamamoto Replica SS96 capsule, all of which have been faithfully replicated to suit identical specifications to their runway counterparts of the late 1990s. The jackets remain distinguished by lapels, pockets, and rigid collars, each with a slightly altered profile and length to match contemporary requirements. Materials were replicated similarly, using rayon fabrics and textiles made from cotton for the capsule brunt.
