S'YTE x KUON COLLECTION Vol.2
The second collaboration between S'YTE and KUON will be unveiled on Yohji Yamamoto's official online store THE SHOP YOHJI YAMAMOTO at noon on Wednesday (a public holiday), February 23rd.
Launched in 2016, KUON is a brand that incorporates the history and culture of used clothes and old cloth that exists all over the world, yet defies boundaries to pursue a simple form of vogue that remains constant over time. This collaboration features a collection of S'YTE's signatory items made from four kinds of fabrics created by combining KUON's strengths of traditional techniques with advanced modern technological capabilities.
All outfits can be viewed here.
To celebrate the release of this collaboration, a S'YTE × KUON POP UP STORE will be set up at KUON Flagship Store for the limited period of Saturday, February 26th to Sunday, March 13th.
During this period, guests to the store can actually touch and try on the items featured in this collaboration. Selective pieces from S'YTE's regular collections will also be made available and the Spring/Summer 2022 collection will be unveiled early on Thursday, March 10th. The POP UP STORE will serve as a showroom and all purchases must be made at Yohji Yamamoto official online store THE SHOP YOHJI YAMAMOTO. This is a valuable opportunity to touch and see S'YTE items that can usually only be viewed online.
