Dear Shaded Viewers,
The devil is in the details when it comes to Yohji Yamamoto and this is something he knows extremely well. It’s in the layers, the edging, the immaculate tailoring, the exaggerated collars and pleated balloon shapes. This season showcased deconstructed trench coats with black denim and wool, lace with mixed textures patchworked together as well as intricate draping throughout. A highlight piece was an oversized puffer jacket with extreme volume at the sleeve. Sculptural head shapes were also twisted into models hair by the ever amazing Eugene Souleiman in black and white. Yohji ended powerfully on mini umbrella shaped hats that had yarn threads of rain dripping down and models were swaddled in wool with the only pops of colour seen within the whole collection in yellow, blue, green and magenta. Truly a feast for the eyes.
