    The atmosphere that these images ooze is enough to make me swoon. It's not his best but I will always have a soft spot for Yohji. One of the few remaining designers who have kept their creative vision intact. The 24th look is divine.

    One of his and Paris Fashion Week's best collections thus far. The way in which the fabric falls is magnificent. The detailing such as the pocket placement, linen lining, and flowing ropes that catch the air as the models walk is simply enchanting. Each of those bolero jackets is cut to perfection. Look 32 is breathtaking. Imagine having such knowledge and craftsmanship to be able to re-imagine a leather trouser into a jacket all while keeping and being able to grasp the shape and silhouette in such a strong, practical manner? Breathtaking. I rarely get emotional during shows, however, the beauty behind the garments amazes me.

    I might be biased because i alway have a soft spot for the Japanese. Yohji is probably the most consistent designer working today. Despite its somberness, some looks are quite elegant and chic in a way that with the right styling those pieces will appeal to some tasteful women even they are not the typical Yohji women, let alone those impeccable details like other memers points out.

    This is his 40th anniversary collection, it seems like yesterday he arrived to Paris...jk I wasn't even born.

    Divine show to mark the milestone, I think I prefer the mens one but they work like chapter 1 and 2 of the same 19th century flavored story.

    The gown with corset detailing is flawlessly executed and remains completely modern while bringing to mind the past. I would kill to walk in that floor length coat sliced into panels, it moves like a dream. The second to last leather jacket is a wonder and as Fulton mentioned, a masterful example of deconstruction.

    The more experimental pieces have their own thing going on. Those volumes jutting out of the body and draped with faded red fabric are so evocative, the models resemble walking temples adorned for a festivity. The hankerchief dress with white stripes hanging from it (and worn with a bomber) has such rythm.

    As an aside I like that the models have different hairstyles that complement their particular look.

    P.S. The pictures on Vogue Runway are incomplete for some reason, the closing looks were a group of mini-dresses.

    To conmemorate the ocassion I'll share one of the looks at his first Paris showing (that took place in his newly opened boutique) and the man himself taking his bow at the end:

    The true G...as ever. The set definitely brings a lot of ambiance here, and as per usual, the slightest "new" detail brought to each collection is so charming (the black chains on one of the looks in the middle). Not such a fan of the looks from the oversize jacket through to the end, but, hey, when is everything an absolute hit?
