YOSHIKI, renowned international icon of music, pop culture, and more, made fashion headlines as the model for the launch of Yves Saint Laurent’s newest lipstick in Tokyo. Also, his avant-garde kimono collection,Yoshikimono, gained worldwide attention as it opened the 2020 Tokyo Fashion Week and was selected by the Tokyo National Museum for their famed kimono exhibit.
As a solo artist and leader of the stadium-packing rock group X Japan, YOSHIKI has sold 50 million albums and singles worldwide. He has headlined Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, and Wembley Arena; and has sold out the Tokyo Dome a record-setting 18 times. He also composed the theme for the Golden Globe Awards, a classical concerto for the Emperor of Japan, and the Hello Kitty theme song, as well as the theme for the hit animation series, Attack on Titan. His collaborations include Beatles producer George Martin, Roger Taylor of Queen, Sarah Brightman; and most recently, Bono, will.i.am, Jennifer Hudson, and St. Vincent. YOSHIKI is currently composing music for xXx 4, the next film in the Hollywood blockbuster franchise starring Vin Diesel, and other soon-to-be-announced TV and film projects.
