Your right, shapeless and unflattering are better words.

I do love the tailored coats and actually really like the oversized trousers, I'm sure they'd look great off the runway too. I'm really warming up to this collection.

It's very nice collection. But it is so typically Yohji, it's so manytimes done by him.

Edit: I love the long trousers:-). Looks like floor length dresses

Paris should definatly live up to it's fashion-capital-of-the-world moniker this year.

Although the cutting and draping are phenomenal, the end result of all that volume is overkill. If skeleton like models look like fat down and out bums, then what about the normal women.
Best integrated with something shapely on the bottom imo.

This is by far one of the best collections I've seen this season.... I am blown away by the fabric layering/draping effects... mixiing two fabrics/outfits into the same outfit.... and the tye dye is GORGEOUS.... I am loving most of it if not all..... except maybe the hats... and the blue-turquoise eye makeup is so remarkably fresh, compared to the BORING to death natural or old hollywood glam makeup looks seen at other shows....

style.com

wow, yohji at its best.... i am so blown away.... the oversized baggyness is done so well and so cute...... and quirky... i am loving the button details on the coats as well.... cute as hell......

And the lace up BOOTS.... they are SO pretty...!!!!! .. they go well with the outfit..... I want something like that for next winter..... so casual yet elegant and edgy.....!!!!!!

I think the essence of traditional Jap dressing isn't to have figure-hugging clothes, but clothes that can vary according to the person, & emphasise movements, & like Chin/Jap painting using the +ve & -ve space. My 2 cent...

Shapeless and unflattering? Hmm...not sure how...perhaps one or two...but other than that, this is what I see:

The contrast between the flowy drapes and the stark deep V necklines accentuate the fragile beauty of the collarbone.

The balance of the high tight waist and long silhouette is very elongating, flattering, and feminine.

The flowing long pants, skirts and sleeves are almost medieval in their noble elegance; the sweeping motion must be beautiful when worn.

Even the oversized-ness accentuate the vulnerable beauty of the body swimming inside (as glimpsed in the neckline and ankles), like a little girl in Daddy's clothes...or even Chaplin

I agree with Kimkhuu, this is one of my favorite Yohji collections ever...

I think sometimes normal woman or however/whatever that term means may look fatter in more form fitting clothing in some cases. I seriously haven't seen a woman who appears fat in Kimono's. Stick thin, medium and well rounded women all look vibrant in them. However I do believe oversized men's jackets can make people look fat.

m-o-m, i don't think that's amy wesson actually?

thanks for the thread and pictures!
ooo, super well said estella, you've responded to everything as i would have...very classic yohji, except for maybe that turquoise/denim fabric. hehe.

Yohji's collections are always exciting to look, but most of times they only look good on models or anybody tall...what a pity...

=T never too fond of yohji's work to begin with..
the whole oversize, loose fitting is just...not flattering..makes the models look like bag ladies(no offence)
but i love the coat on the top left from post #11
