To produce some of the heaviest outerwear from Yohji Yamamoto’s Fall/Winter 2018 range, the Japanese designer turned to one of the country’s foremost leatherworkers: Isamu Katayama. Along with Backlash, his own label of edgy, rock ‘n roll styling, Katayama occasionally creates items for domestic designers, with Yamamoto being the latest in a line of collaborators.

The collaboration encompasses a quintet of colorful leather jackets, comprised of a black double riders, two trim variants and two collared iterations, the latter two offered in vibrant blue or red. Plentiful zippers appear throughout, on the placket, sleeves, chest and pockets, with snap buttons sealing the double riders’ collars and belts at the waist for a secure fit. Rather than opting for the boxy, oversized cuts that Justin Davis created for Yamamoto or the buttery leathers of Spring/Summer 2018, Katayama’s signature creased, washed finishes inform the slouchy, yet snug, cuts.

Take a look at each jacket above and expect Yamamoto stockists to receive the hefty goods shortly.

Recently, Yamamoto debuted his effortless Spring/Summer 2019 collection.
