YOHJI YAMAMOTO SS20 - NO FUTURE JACKET
2019/12/26/Thu〈 INFORMATION DESK 〉
The No Future Jacket was worn by Yohji Yamamoto when he appeared to greet attendees at the end of the Yohji Yamamoto Femme SS20 Paris Collection show. Printed on the back with “NO FUTURE” combined with Yamamoto’s signature, this jacket has the same silhouette as Yamamoto’s own favorite jacket, nicknamed “Dr. JACKET.” Made from wool gabardine—a fabric that is synonymous with the Yohji Yamamoto brand—the jacket can be worn as a unisex item. The words “NO FUTURE” are intended as an alarm bell warning against end-of-the-world-heralding phenomena of natural disasters caused by global-scale weather changes that are growing increasingly more serious throughout the world. No Future holds the stark warning that we have no future, but it also includes a message from Yamamoto that we must not be passive but rather actively create our own future with our own hands amidst such unstable social conditions.
