The main inspiration for the new YVY collection is Irish architect and furniture designer Eileen Gray (1878-1976) and Brutalist Architecture. Inspired by the changing functionality of Grays objects, YVY’s BRUT allows the wearer to modify their leather piece and create a new, unexpected look from the same object. The pared back selection of clothing completes YVY's sensual image of women with androgynous coolness.
Timeless tranquility, spare elegance, beauty in nature. YVY’s collection, SHIBUI, encapsulates this Japanese aesthetic as it transforms into sophisticated leather accessories. Its color palette, in addition to our signature of black, is composed of soft, natural hues for a strong sense of femininity.
While expanding upon the concepts of our previous collections, we stay true to our overall aesthetic and vision. «My work is not about form follows function, but form follows beauty or, even better, form follows feminine.» - Oscar Niemeyer
The CLASSICS are our line of timeless clothing that has been carefully designed to create the perfect backdrop for each of our leather accessories. Created solely with smooth black and white fabric, this clothing embodies the term classic. Each piece begins with a form-fitting structure and as the fabric glides down the body, it begins to naturally fall with a luxurious flow.
Morocco in the early seventies, a dreamscape for musicians, artists and their muses, an exotic and luxurious bohemian kingdom full of stories. The 1001 collection is inspired by the mixture of oriental mystique and geometric islamic patterns in the heyday of experimental liberation.

YVY's first collection "SKIN" is a unique line of provocative handmade leather accessories. Yvonne Reichmuth created two editions inspired from medieval armor from centuries past mixed with a kinky fetish twist.
