  • Yohji Yamamoto Exclusively at Karir

    We are excited to present the latest collection from Yohji Yamamoto exclusively in our stores. Yamamoto is an influential Japanese designer known for his avant-garde style which is well represented in his latest collection of sunglasses. Although Yamamoto has dabbled in the optical world in the past with other designers such as Alain Mikli, we feel that this collection is a true representation of his brand.

    The collection features oversized shapes with an interesting twist and most lenses offer frosted mirror coatings. Check them out in our First Canadian Place and Yorkville locations.
