Although made for a woman, this jacket employs many of the customary elements present in men's suits. Yamamoto’s emphasis on androgyny is purposeful. He rejects the idea that women’s clothes should display the female body by never endorsing the figure-hugging silhouettes revered by some of his peers.

Yohji Yamamoto, New York (store at 103 Grand St.); Ann Stack, Indianapolis, Indiana, in the 1990s; given to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in 2009.
