S’YTE – is named after reading backward “et Y’s”, which means “with Y’s” in French. Launched in September 2011, S’YTE is a web-only brand with the positioning as an entry brand to Yohji Yamamoto.

Ground Y – proposes a new fashion concept – genderless and ageless style – through synchronizing different aspects of Yohji Yamamoto. Suitable and thus widely supported from all genders and ages, Ground Y provides a variety of its popular goods.

Y’s – Functional and dignified everyday wear–within a unique category established by itself, the collection is shaped by universal values and unique pattern-making. It presents high-quality ready-to-wear clothing through which the atelier team expresses the brand’s identity.

YOHJI YAMAMOTO PRODUCE – managed by Yohji Yamamoto’s atelier team, reproduces the archived smash hit products of Yohji Yamamoto, and is positioned as the entry brand to Yohji Yamamoto pour Homme.

Yohji Yamamoto + NOIR – expresses Yohji Yamamoto’s worldview through casual wear. Themed around black, it pays great attention to the volume and balance of fabric, and conveys trend-free classic, elegant, and refined gorgeous value of Yohji Yamamoto. Web-Only products will be available.

discord Yohji Yamamoto – launched in 2014, it provides a new sense of value through luxury accessories created by Yohji Yamamoto. The word “discord” reflects the aesthetics of incompleteness and asymmetry that are the philosophy of the designer.

LIMI feu – emphasizes the ambience, volume, and comfortableness by removing excess, and purposely leaves the blank space for one’s personality to blend in. Detaching herself from the normalized trend, the designer Limi Yamamoto put in her ongoing feels and wills in the straight and clean straight-line silhouette, while combining it with the original voluminous drape that surrounds the body.
