Yohji Yamamoto Spring/Summer 2020 ventured away from the purely all-black aesthetic that we're used to from the designer's line.

Attempting to address the real threat of climate change, the designer added subtle messaging like "MOTHER FU**ER" and "I hold you, you hold me" on pieces in addition to adding a range of natural colors like red, blue and purple. Additionally, Yamamoto addresses the fact that genderless garments are becoming the norm and adds a series of black and white sketches onto pieces. One standout piece is a velvet vest paired with a long dress-like jacket featuring a golden fleur-de-lis on one sleeve and an all-black sleeve on the other.
