"Minimalism is laziness"

I think the Hermes x Yohji bag collab is kind of perfect. I'm more of a CdG girl when it comes to clothes but I love Yohji Yamamoto and Y's bags because most of them are really simple and use that thick and smooth kind of leather I find nicest. Classic Hermes' bags are also very simple compared to the it-bags that come and go every season (the Birkin is like my ultimate dream accessory it's so gonna be the first thing I get once I start working). Since both brands focus on utility and quality but differ in aesthetics I really think this is an ideal collaboration.

PS the quote above is something I remember Yohji saying in an interview. I thought it was hilarious and can be so true.
