TW: This Design contains imagery of the artist's depiction of his own fictional suicide
WAH-WAH x TADANORI YOKOO "CLIMAX"
"Having reached a climax at the age of 29, I was dead" - Tadanori Yokoo
Japan in the 60’s. Revolution is in the air. Students and left-wing militants clash violently with the cops while a new wave of artists, musicians, and filmmakers are breaking every taboo there is. Into this heady mix steps 29 year old Tadanori Yokoo, choosing to mark his arrival on the scene by… announcing his own death?!
What better way to celebrate the long ‘posthumous’ career of the still very much alive Yokoo, than this WAH-WAH collaboration featuring some of the artist’s most iconic designs. Traditional Japanese elements boldly combine with startling psychedelic designs: this is sex and death on acid. ‘What I love most,’ says Yokoo, ‘is the absurd image which defies all explanations’. WAH-WAH fully concurs, but we also think that by wearing this jumper, a lot of fun can be had watching people try!

WAH-WAH sizing is unisex and the measurements above reflect the garment measurements in cm. We recommend measuring from underarm to underarm of a jumper (sweater) that you like the fit of, and choosing the nearest corresponding size. Keep in mind that the knitted superfine merino wool is pretty stretchy and forgiving, so there is a bit of leeway with sizing. For more info, check out the sizing gallery HERE.
