Summer is about to get scary with the Yohji Yamamoto Phantom accessories collection for men. The line, which draws on iconic traits from gothic culture of mid-century Europe is a play on the popularity of vampire culture. Gone are the days that fangs, spikes and crosses were reserved for a certain breed of reckless devil worshiping youth.

The famed men's designer, who just last year covered Highsnobiety Magazine's Fall issue is known for his dark, eclectic twist on basic colors and fashions. Comprised of fangs, pendants, spike necklaces, crosses, and snake-shaped belt buckles, the collection's intricate details inspired by Parisian gothic architecture make the collection accessible to a wider audience of fashion risk takers.
