The origin and characteristics of the CORE capsule – and how the current crisis inspired the collection It is those core values that make YVY not only survive the crisis but encourage us more than ever to go our own way. For the new CORE capsule collection, I found inspiration in our own archive, I revived shapes, techniques, and materials from previous collections. I used this time to find back to our core and take the freedom to design a capsule with what I had in the studio.”

The main inspiration for the 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.

PHILOSOPHY YVY – a line of versatile leather accessories and classic clothing. ETHICS YVY stands for fair conditions and believes in an open and transparent production process. Each decision made takes into account the people we work with, the conditions of the animals our skins are sourced from and the environment’s best interest. Every piece is designed by Yvonne and is then brought to life in her studio in Zurich, Switzerland by her and her team; while some pieces are made in partnership with an italian producer. As well, we collaborate closely with carefully selected Italian artisans for our leather accessories. All collections are made out of the finest Italian leather, primarily vegetable-tanned, and the mesh fabrics are made in Switzerland. The clothing production guarantees fair working conditions and a friendly environment. With compassion for all living beings, all of the leather we use is a by-product from the food industry, insuring no animal is killed for its skin. The majority of our leather is vegetable-tanned, a century-old artisan tradition based on the use of natural tannin extracts. This means only natural oils and dyes are used, providing a safe process for the workers and the environment. This tedious process gives the leather a unique and natural look. In 2013, YVY was founded in Zurich, Switzerland creating seasonal-independent designs where traditional craftsmanship meets innovation. Away from mass production toward skillfully developed pieces of art; YVY stands for selected materials and high quality throughout the entirety of manufacturing. The bespoke line gives Yvonne and her team the ability to fulfill custom wishes. All collections are handmade from the finest Italian leather and prove how seductive sustainability can be. Each collection blurs the lines of traditional accessories and clothing; the range varying from bracelets, to body harnesses, to full dresses. Detailed tracery, lacing and delicate rivets, combined with carefully crafted cuts, melt into transcendental pieces of craftsmanship. The timeless, sophisticated clothing is designed to create the perfect backdrop for each of YVY’s leather accessories. The collections are available through YVY’s own webshop as well as in selected boutiques. designer Yvonne Reichmuth was born in 1986 in Switzerland. After graduating in Zurich in 2008 with a fashion design degree, she began her career as a womenswear designer. Yvonne gained additional experience as a fashion stylist for editorial and advertising shoots and also created costumes for movies and made numerous custom pieces. Developing a strong passion for leather, Yvonne Reichmuth studied in Florence for further education in leathercrafting and took her leather expertise to the next level. Yvonne’s designs have been worn by the likes of Billie Eilish, Cardi B, Taylor Swift, Kristen Stewart, Monica Bellucci, Kylie Jenner, Gwen Stefani, Janet Jackson and numerous other celebrities. YVY’s work has been featured in editorials including Vogue, Interview, Love, ELLE, Harper’s Bazaar, GQ, Paper, Novembre and L’Officiel.
