In his ss 2010 collection Yohji Yamamoto showed that there are endless variations on the black jacket. He designed a version which left the shoulders and a great part of the model’s breast uncovered. There were pointing and popped collars,  zipped and unbuttoned jackets. One piece had circular cutouts, another extra long sleeves. There was a long tattered one and a trenchcoat version. Two leather examples were shown. Unfortunately the jackets were much of the same. Therefore your attention was sometimes pulled more to the hair and the make-up of the models, which looked horrific. The hair was back combed and sprayed white. The faces were white and had a square of colored eyeshadow around the eyes. Towards the end there were some designs in white with floral prints. Nice repetitive details were peaked shoulders and wide collars. Overall Yamamoto showed a safe and wearable collection. (Tess van Daelen)
