Yohji Yamamoto Opens SoHo Pop-Up Shop For His Diffusion Line and Utilitarian Bags

We've had bags on the brain lately, so when we heard that the king of cool wares, Yohji Yamamoto, teamed up with Mandarina Duck to create a collection of minimalist carry-alls and housed them in a three month brick-and-mortar locale, we planned a mini-pilgrimage (okay, brisk walk) to the sleek SoHo space to check it out. The 98 Greene Street pop-up shop not only houses the smooth nylon and rugged denim totes, backpacks, and trolleys, but it's also home to Yohji's other diffusion line, Coming Soon. The casual athletic-inspired wares will be featured in a short dance film projected on the wall, which is directed by Max Vadukul. And because the space is only there 'til mid August, we suggest you make a stop-in now to pick up your summer travel gear and wear before it's gone.
