Black is signature colour for designer Yohji Yamamoto,
(image from vogue.fr):
whose clothing seem the product of
contemplative calm and dress freedom created by:
gender-less identification: silhouettes which suit both men and women
deconstruction: a shift away from “perfect fashion”
over-sizing: the big is beautiful factor
minimalist: low-key / tranquil aspect
a succinct summing up of the aesthetics expressed by
a typical Yohji Yamamoto collection.
For his menswear a/w 2014 offering
Mr. Yamamoto veers, in bold measure,
from his traveled design path and follows a road of
colour vibrancy, print, sharper tailoring and fit.
Yet, elements of the Yamamoto essence are in evidence:
layering, voluminousness, gender non-specific fashion .
This combination of fashion factors: the unexpected and the expected
resulted in a vivacious collection.
The element of design surprise intrigues.
I wonder what’s to be “expected” next , or not
