Yohji Yamamoto Menswear Catwalk Fashion Show Paris FW2013

Too bad all men have shaved their mustaches already after Movember came to an end. If they would have continued without shaving they perhaps would have had the long mustaches Yamamoto showed this week. It was the right timing for an ode to the mustache (we have never seen so much mustache merchandise as in last year), yet they might have been a little distracting from the clothes too. Classic clothes that were given a playful touch. A red tartan printed suit was followed by a grey pleated skirt suit worn with a purple tie and a purple shaded XL leopard cardigan. There was a pair of zebra pants, a purple skirt suit, a duo colored suit, metallic pants and fur vests. Yamamoto might be dressing rockers, fathers, photographers or actors next year; he sure seemed to have had fun while creating one of his most humorous collections in a while.

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.

Yes there was plenty of Yamamoto’s signature black, but there was also quite a bit of color. Red and blue accents popped up throughout the whole show, on the clothes but also as a detail in the models’ hair. It made up for a vivid show, which felt refreshing for a Yamamoto winter collection.

The show was about covering up and revealing as warm winter coats and capes were matched with cut out, asymmetrical draped dresses. Besides a punky touch (seen through the hair, the boots and the use of color) the collection had a sporty vibe as well (visible through the jersey fabrics, the duo colored leggings and the fingerless tassled ?! gloves).

Whether heading to the gym or on your way to a nice dinner; these Yamamoto designs will definitely make you stand out. And if not, you can always tie and twist some colorful scarfs around your body for that extra showstopping effect.

Young, old, dark, white, red haired, grey, bold, long haired, shaves bearded; the models at Yohji Yamamoto were as diverse as can be. The clothes however were scaled down a bit from what we’ve seen before.

The models looked neat in their duo colored looks. Details like a poncho wrapped around their shoulders, colorful ties popping out from under a suit jacket and diverse hats giving them an extra elegant touch.

Coats played a central role in Yohji’s fall collection appearing in many forms, from militaristic, to tuxedo-ish, and from an asymmetric black version to a woolen red example with fur on the elbows(!?). Eater you love it or hat it, but at least Yohji provided more than enough options.

Although you might expect bright colors for the summer-season, many designers chose black and white as their main colors. There were lots of outfits in full black or white, but also good combinations as well.

Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester and the two Japanese designers Yohji Yamamoto and Junya Watanabe didn’t use any color in their shows at all. Their designs were all in black, white and some hues of grey. Rick Owens’ designs stood out because they were very pointy. Watanabe’s clothes had black and white checks that matched with the checked shoes.

Givenchy showed some black and white in his renewing geometricaly shaped outfits. Jill Stuart made a few pairs of extraordinary black and white leggings. At the Moschino fashion show modern white blouses were mixed with black bows.
