If you thought the first collaboration of Cherevichkiotvichki with the Yohji Yamamoto for their Femme collection was a hit, think again. Victoria Andrejeva, creative force behind the utterly unpronounceable brand, Cherevichkiotvichki, and the high fashion Japanese house are working together on a first men’s footwear collaboration collection. Now that is sure to give the first collaboration a run for its money.
The “Cherevichkiotvichki for Yohji Yamamoto” creations are made with the best of the old-as-time Italian craftsmanship and in the artful tradition of the of footwear crafting, combined with the technical palette of the “master tailor’s” new collection. The three hand-crafted styles of shoes and accessories complement and enhance the rough beauty of Yohji Yamamotos Homme SS17 2017 runway presentation.
The capsule collection features two types of shoes and leather bracelets. Borrowing from the ladies, the favorite low derby shoe, presented for the women’s collection the previous season, got a manly-man make-over to complete the mens rugged look. The second style, the mid-length boot, now comes in a traditional Cherevichkiotvichki walnut dyed canvas and heavily waxed camel hide with a front curved zipper. Oh, yum!
You might have to wait a while before you can get your hands on these delightful babies. The collaboration pieces will become available only in early 2017 and will be sold exclusively available in the Yohji Yamamoto stores and selected boutiques. Though you might want to get in line or on a waiting list right now, though, because these will just walk off the shelves before they even get there, if we are correct. They got us drooling…
