Ah brilliant as usual, Yohji's play on proportions have always been fun though I agree with Pastry how it's not very womanly in some ways. Especially the case with the oversived men's suits and all, however I'm excited to see the corsets in this collections. The whale bone ribbing looks really special, and it works well with all his jackets but I don't know how it will translate off the runway.

Nuts? That's a horrible thing to say. Fashion can't move in different directions is everyone just wears whatever the trend agencies say to.

I'd love to see more brave ladies looking like this on the street, but of course most of the Yohji customers won't buy total catwalk looks seen here...I think the tailoring is super elegant (as always), especially the suits and trench coats can be worn by women of any age and there aren't that many designers who can make people in their 20s and 60s look modern and attractive in the same clothes.

I think it's the way you wear Yohji pieces. Of course, on the runway, everything is dramatised and heightened. But a Yohji jacket mixed with jeans and suddenly, it's taken out of context and becomes more naturalised. This collection in particular is great for that oversized look that I would balance with more fitted pieces. Like those baggy trousers with a tight tank and fitted blazer. If I could afford it, I'd buy Yohji pieces every season just to bring some dramaticism to my otherwise mundane life!

it's breathtakingly beautiful.
when i saw the first pictures yesterday i thought they were from an old collection of his, i think it's very 'classical' yamamoto in the best way. and i agree with susie that it's a welcome change to otherwise boring proportions, i wish i'd see more people integrating shapes like this into their style.
m-o-m, i don't think that's amy wesson actually?

thanks for the thread and pictures!

Quite stylish, but what he does isn't really my thing. I'll see a jacket or another piece here or there that I think is great, but as a whole the look doesn't do much for me. Brooding, complex, inaccessable, and with the exception of what Valentina Zeliaeva's wearing, not feminine.

*ducks and hides*

Many people are commenting that it's un-feminine...normally, I would also agree that Yohji is androgynous. But this time on the contrary, this is extremely feminine. It's oozing womanly curves, a negligee sensuality, wild imagination, dramatic willpower, and even a bit of flesh. It's so beautiful I want to scream!

I specially love the navy and grey boiled wool. And of course, the hair...

Hmm, I think this is first Yohji collection that is leaving me cold for the most part. I think it's the cuts mostly. I love how they are usually loose, yet always remaining within the contour of the body, but these are just huge and contourless. The looks that I love are the typical Yohji cuts like in the last post above with photos.

P.S. Couldn't agree more with MOM - Paris is the start and the end of the fashion season.

faust is right yet again! why do they even bother with NYC, London and Milan...PARIS is the original fashion capital! lets nly have Paris fashion week! it has the only designers that matter with the only concepts that matter.

I'm definitely unsure about all of it. I adore what Valentina's wearing in the first picture in post 11, but it also seems a bit out of place compared to the shapes and structures of the rest of the collection so far... I also don't feel it's very feminine, but then again I also don't feel it's masculine.

That said, I do really love the colours, and in many ways I find certain pieces very, very beautiful... So perhaps put together in a more casual way; like a coat paired with jeans as Susie was saying, I would appreciate this a bit more...

Well, I was quoting metal-on-metal's (a.k.a. MOM) post, so technically she is right first .
