YOHJI YAMAMOTO SS17
YOHJI YAMAMOTO - SS17 PARIS FASHION WEEK
Yohji Yamamoto presented his Spring/Summer 2017 collection during Paris Fashion Week. Yet another master class from a true master. Yamamoto’s men took to the runway and trod a fine line between heroic and derelict. Their heads, wrists, and ankles were bandaged with different coloured dressings. The silhouettes shifted between androgynous fluid and soft-shouldered long boxy jackets over wide high pants. Shirts were long and loose. Pockets appeared in unconventional but still functional positions, rearranged by the suggestion of past violence like the nose of a boxer is altered by its reality. Yamamoto’s graffiti-like illustrations splattered across trench coats and sleeves first manifested themselves in the emblem “Yohjis for hire” on the back of a pale loose canvas blazer. Yamamoto's palette was distinguished with accents of rich colour used to break through the monotone mould. Check out our favourite looks from Yohji Yamamoto's spring summer 2017 show below.
