I think it's OK. It's not awful by any means but it's disappointing.

It is strangely girlish. I do love the grey outfits and the long bellbottoms.

I wish people would stop posting these Nowfashion photos, they are time after time incredibly bad. it can't take more then an hour or two before better ones show up, can we not wait? for example, here: http://www.style.com/fashionshows/re...13RTW-YJIYMOTO

I think its a fantastic collection, I'm surprised by the reactions but then again it'll be a strange day when I agree with most here.

The beauty of this board is the sense of immediacy and urge to discuss (after most people watch the livestreams). HQ pictures usually follow as soon as they become available, so I'm not sure what your beef is. I appreciate anyone who takes the time and effort to post full collections.

This collection is definitely a lot to absorb, but I still see more good than bad pieces.

oh I love this collection! It's cool him going more girly in way, its a nice unexpected twist to his work. I would have though cut out the bright coloured pieces, a bit garish for my taste.

well, my beef is that anyone coming to this thread is still seeing the crappy photos. they are in the first posts and stay there indefinitely.

Nowfashion doesn't seem to have respect for designers or showcasing their work in a quality way, they only care about being the first to have photos online. do we need to do the same, or could we wait an hour when for example style.com had their photos up, which are far superior in quality. if there is an urge to discuss within that hour, maybe just link the poor images and wait for the good ones.

^This is a common complaint - I think all pictures should be posted. The first images induce verdicts based mostly on color and silhouette, at best, that is true.

And I would urge everyone to post HQs when you see the thread does not contain them. Some people, like me, may not have seen them....

Can't help but respect the artistry that goes behind creating the collection. There are some amazing pieces here, innovative combinations of materials and silhouettes.

Loving the grey and bronze combination dresses.

some of the dresses are incredibly amazing and so are some of the jackets...
four stars...
good, solid stuff---not over the moon about everything, but the good stuff is so good, i don't care if it's not perfect...
maybe it's better if it's not perfect...

review from hintmag.com
Quote:
Yohji Yamamoto

by Anthony Stephinson

Though the Yohji Yamamoto show was full of visual contradictions, with sartorial references ranging from the 40s to the 90s, we wanted it all so bad! The mood was playful, entirely soundtracked by Beatles classics, seeming at first as though Yohji was in a nostalgic mood, but by the end simply cementing his disinterest in and opposition to whatever the current trend is (which this season is punk).

His meditations on form and fabric, and his unwillingness to conform, are endlessly alluring. He's always walked his own path, and his hallmarks were all present and accounted for today: re-appropriated menswear, origami, pleating, knotting, tearing, drapery, frayed woven textiles, asymmetry, and oodles of monochrome black. The man who claimed “black is modest and arrogant at the same time" seems more and more like he's describing not only his feeling towards the color, but also his personal mantra.

Post-show, the crowd was ecstatic, with much reminiscing about Yamamoto classics. On the way out, two discreet podiums had been set up, presenting the return of the much-loved Yohji Yamamoto fragrance, which has been missing from the market for almost a decade. Samples were handed out to very happy show-goers, while the music still played in the background: "Get back, get back, get back to where you once belonged."
