PARIS — Yohji Yamamoto is delving into gems for the first time.
The iconoclastic designer has teamed up with Japanese cultured pearl specialist Mikimoto, which established the world’s first pearl farm in 1888, to launch a new jewelry brand whose name is being kept under wraps.
The first collection, using a spectrum of pearls from white to black, will be unveiled during couture week here in July.
For complete coverage, see tomorrow's issue of WWD.
Alberta Ferretti's "Rainbow Week" sweaters are back. The designer closed her #MFW show with a few day-of-the-week sweaters, which first debuted on the catwalk last January as part of the pre-fall 2017 collection. #wwdfashion (📷: @delphineachard)
