Yamamoto Designs for Mikimoto

Mikimoto has tapped fashion designer Yojhi Yamamoto to create a collection for the venerable jewelry house. The two Japanese houses will join forces and design a 20-piece collection that will focus on Mikimoto's star gemstone, the pearl, it was announced Tuesday.

"The pearl is a symbol of feminine perfection, and, in the quintessential universe of fine jewelry, it stands alone," the jewelry house noted. "For these reasons…Mikimoto's incomparable reputation for designing, producing and selling the world's finest cultured pearl jewelry made it a perfect choice for Yohji Yamamoto."

This is the first time Mikimoto has collaborated with a fashion designer to create a collection of this magnitude. In 2001, the jewelry house launched a fashion designer collection that combined talents with Badgley Mischka, Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera and Vera Wang to create individual pearl jewelry complements.

The Paris-based, Japanese-born Yamamoto is known for his avant-garde clothing designs. In addition to designing for men and women's collections, Yamamoto also designs the popular Y-3 line for Adidas.

The collection will be composed of three groups to make up 20 pieces and will officially debut at couture week in Paris in July. The line will be available at Yohji Yamamoto and Mikimoto locations in the states in November, and Europe and Asia in 2008.
