“Leather has this magical attraction––its skin is sensual and sensitive; real, and honest, becoming more and more beautiful over time.” –– YVY
Sure, Yvonne Reichmuth’s incredibly cutting-edge, world-class structural fashion stuns, but did you know her indulgent, sophisticated design is just the tip of the iceberg that is her luxurious sensibility? We go deeper with YVY to see what drives this iconic designer and learn about her tips for touring the hidden gems of Zurich.
With theatrical styles that shine the spotlight on the female form, she’s been a favourite of the world’s top celebrities like Kristen Stewart, Katy Perry, Kylie Jenner, Eva Longoria, Shakira, Janelle Monae, Ciara, and actress Lydia Hearst. They’ve worn everything from hats and belts, to snake corsages and skirts hand-crafted out of luscious materials including the finest Italian suedes, using eco-friendly vegetable dyes. Far from fast fashion and lightyears away from mass-production, YVY specialises in heirloom pieces that evoke the romantic and historical, reflected in the architecture that inspired them. So which Swiss architects might serve as an inspiration for her today?
