Yohji Yamamoto Catwalk Fashion Show Paris SS2013
On Friday evening a series of rags represented Yohji Yamamoto’s feeling of destroyed romance. In his collection, full of contradictions and mood swings, the designer showed a certain poetic spirit. His messy haired models walked the runway on flats, dressed in fringed maxi skirts, pants and dresses held together by the slightest pieces of fabrics. After black, khaki and red, it was black again in which veiled models represented some kind of widows. Followed by girls in asymmetrical jackets worn with colorful lurid sheer skirts, revealing their blue shaded panties.
Some eye-catching larger than life jewelery funked things up in the second half of the show. Necklaces that might work for a magazine’s editorial or catch the streetstyle photogs attention outside the shows. Yet not really the kind to hit the office in. The same goes for the clothes, although we can see something beautiful happening with the languid sheer tops and dresses that closed this slightly confusing Yamamoto collection.
