| Yohji Yamamoto and the classic black collection that took Paris Fashion Week by storm with the anti-colour clothing pieces.
Oh, Yohji, you’ve done it again! Today at Paris Fashion Week, the master tailor presented a new collection of deconstructed shirting in black, black, and some more black.
Models walked slowly to sombre country music in a large circular space at Cité de la Mode et du Design, dressed in an array of looks inspired by the simple shirt.
Highlights included the wide brimmed sun hats sliced precisely down the centre along with visors, berets and fedoras,and the bold, graphic make up framing the angular faces of each model; all in Yohji’s signature colour.
From swashbuckling ruffled gowns to asymmetric officewear, the Spring/Summer ’18 collection explored a wide range of beautiful silhouettes, but with a unifying feeling throughout as if the garments were from Yohji’s own wardrobe, draped and rearranged effortlessly into avant garde masterpieces.
