kansai yamamoto 80s face sweater
before the invasion of the japanese deconstruction movement in the 80s, the fashion world recognised japan for their eclectic designs that screamed maximalism. kansai yamamoto was the japanese representative of the outrageous and theatrical garments that were in vogue during that era. there was a tasteful touch to the maximalism concept, as the garments fused a mixture of dissimilar textiles and prints that seemed unexpectedly harmonious.
this piece in particular features a face motif which has appeared across numerous pieces throughout the decade and has since became one of the brand's iconic design. this knit is done in a acrylic cotton blend with constrasting panels and glittering lurex threads woven to the front of the sweater, forming the face displayed on one side and 'kansai yamamoto' branding on the other side.
