Yohji Yamamoto, who does Y-3 sportswear in collaboration with Adidas, has bagged another partnership — with Italian luggage specialist Mandarina Duck. Yohji Yamamoto will design a line of bags, travel cases and accessories under the name Y’s Mandarina. The new collection will debut for Spring 2007 in showrooms in Milan, Paris, Antwerp, Tokyo and New York.

“It will be designed with Yohji’s DNA,” said Yamamoto chief executive, Keizo Tamoto, of the collaboration. He told WWD that the travel theme has featured strongly in Yamamoto’s collections and that the explosion in global travel had prompted him to want to design this collection. “This category, we think, will become more and more important,” said Tamoto.

The range will be approximately 30 to 50 percent more expensive than the standard Mandarina Duck products. It is expected to generate annual sales of €20 million by the third year of the collaboration. Distribution will include specialty and department stores as well as a number of freestanding Y’s and Mandarina Duck stores.

“This is the first collaboration we have in our 29 years of business,” said Mandarina Group vice president Sergio Rao. “It is a strategic milestone.

Interesting...amd I'm dying to see as they are so different in design direction and outlook - one is so deconstructed abstract-retro and the other completely cute mod-industrial. All my luggages, many bags and even some clothes are Mandarina Duck since my early teens - I'm that loyal. Couldn't ever stand that LV crap. I would expect designers who are more like Jil Sander to do a MD collaboration because their design aesthetics, materials and colours are spot on, but I'm open minded and would love to add new carry ons that would match the moodier "Japanese" clothes in the wardrobe.

Thanks softie for posting and mirra for the pictures!

I agree with you Zazie. Coincidentally I also liked Mandarina Duck from a very young age. Two of the things I love doing a collaboration, mhm mhm.
The different design aesthetics of the two is what interests me most. Love to see what comes from this.

Wow. I absolutely love Yohji to death. It's all construction! And a bag dress? Innovative!
