Paris S/S 09: Yohji Yamamoto

Yohji Yamamoto always like this dark gothic theme for most of his shows, but what really differs from other designer's goth is that his creations are much more wearable.

His tailorings are also undoubtably one of the top-notch. Ragged and unstructured are really contradicted by how well-made they actually are. Zippers, obvious stitches and extra use of fabrics can easily look cheap, but Yohji's able to embody them together with the right placement, protrusion and elaborations.

  • Another aspect from Yohji's show is that I can always find something that I can definitely wear from the show straight, even though it's meant to be a womenswear show.

  • Not a single colour from the man for Spring aren't that surprising. What's surprising for me, would have to be the casting. Especially Tanya.
