This issue is celebrating Yohji Yamamoto‘s 50th anniversary, and to mark the occasion, the South Sudanese model is wearing a full look from the legendary designer’s past collection.
In a statement made by the publication on Instagram:
Having overseen over 500 collections during his career, Yohji Yamamoto is still designing at 78 years old – and this year celebrates the 50th anniversary of starting his first label all those years ago in Tokyo. 🖤
