Mikimoto has announced a collaboration with Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto. Yamamoto will design a 20 piece collection centering around the Mikimoto’s signature pearl. The pearl is a symbol of feminine perfection, and, in the quintessential universe of fine jewelry, it stands alone. For these reasons Mikimoto’s incomparable reputation for designing, producing and selling the world’s finest cultured pearl jewelry made it a perfect choice for Yohji Yamamoto.”
Yamamoto rose to fame in the 80’s as part of Japanese 3, with Rei Kawakubo of Commes Des Garcons and Issey Miyake, bringing avant garde fashion to Paris. Previous Mikimoto collaborations include Carolina Herrera, Badgley Mischka, Oscar De La Renta and Vera Wang.
