With Ireland’s recent yes to legalising gay marriage in the midst of wedding season our minds have wandered to bridal wear.

With Ireland’s recent yes to legalising gay marriage in the midst of wedding season our minds have wandered to bridal wear and we were happy to rediscover Yohji Yamamoto’s SS99 Transformative Wedding Collection as recently featured in AnOther Magazine’s Shows That Matter and Tim Blank’s Throwback Thursday session on STYLE.COM. Yamamoto has always been at the forefront of gender-bending fashion whilst dismissing the concept of “androgyny” which in his view “does not have any meaning as there is no difference between men and women”. The progressive collection celebrates the playful dimension of fashion in a contrastingly formal ceremonial context, and we love this beautiful early reinterpretation of bridal wear.
