Pretty nifty. I'm not particularly enthralled with wearing my bags, it's a bit too field/hunting gear to me.

Thank you mirrra! I like that YY added a lot of layered construction to the "storage" concept while keeping it pure, especially in that bag dress. The wearable bags, though, were already trendy in the mid-90s when a number of Belgians were designing them, so they look deja-vu. That red dress IMO will be a hit, and I'm eager to see it in the MD store.

Greetings, Avantster, another Mandarina Duck "baby". Incidentally, have you seen the Mandarina Duck store in Paris? That's my favourite - it is designed by NL, a group of cool, nice young Dutch architects.

I love Yamamoto, but I am not sure about these bags. Especially the red one seems very beautiful, but I am not sure how practical these are. I don't think I fully get the idea, I need bigger pictures to see them well.

Yohji Yamamoto bags a deal with Mandarina Duck

March 26, 2007—Weird monikers aren't the only thing Y's and Mandarina Duck have in common this season. Yohji Yamamoto's design-forward fashion and furniture line has partnered with the culty Italian luggage makers to create a range of bags and clothing that—in theory and, more refreshingly, in practice—plays off the strengths of both brands. Dubbed Y's Mandarina (why fight the name thing?), the 48-piece collection is equal parts innovation and sleek simplicity. "We were aiming at informal elegance," explains Mandarina Duck VP Sergio Rao, as well as "new ideas and new concepts that could be exploited." So many new concepts, apparently, that the collection is divided into two divisions, Y and M. The Y Division features avant-garde designs such as a hybrid hood-sleeve-bag that might be best described as Children of Men chic. For those who aren't packing for life after the apocalypse, meanwhile, the M Division offers a more practical range of wallets, dopp kits, duffels, and suitcases that combine Mandarina Duck's signature leathers and nylons with a minimal vibe that's all Yohji. As expected, the collection's mostly black, though it does include a sporty white canvas bag that feels particularly yacht-ready—with the exception of its "martial-arts belt" strap, that is. Japanese–Italian alliances haven't always worked out in the past, but this one is off to a good start.

Y's Mandarina prices range from $100 for a leather key holder to $680 for a trolley suitcase; available now at Yohji Yamamoto, 103 Grand St., NYC, (212) 966-9066.

I like the idea of the Y division, but the M division sounds so unnecessary.

The M division sounds like it's made to sell, whereas the Y division is made to attract people. I do like the idea of Y division better, but I have to agree that I don't know how those adorable bags posted in this thread can be worn.

Is that suitcase posted part of the collection? It looks good, but quite basic... it could be Samsonite, not Yohji.

very nice- thanks for the pics...

the red remains my fave...

this whole concept reminds me of a junya dress i have that has messengers bags built into the dress...
this takes it one step further....

i confess that the garments interest me far more than the regualr bags ...
which i find rather ordinary
