YORK — Two sides of Yohji Yamamoto were revealed in the Meatpacking District over the weekend when a signature store bowed at 1 Gansevoort Street and a Y-3 unit was unveiled across the street at 317 West 13th Street.
The Yohji Yamamoto store is designed to look like an art gallery, which seems natural for the designer, whose work has been exhibited in museums around the world. It features the women's and men's collections, accessories and Stormy Weather, Yamamoto's jewelry collaboration with Mikimoto. It is the designer's first store in Manhattan since the SoHo flagship opened at 103 Grand Street 20 years ago.
