Yohji Yamamoto Spring 2012

“After a couple of seasons raging against the machine in angst-y, punk-themed collections, Yohji Yamamoto relocated to a lighter, more romantic point on his spectrum. ‘He must be in love,’ remarked one critic, even before the bride and her boyish attendant-slash-groom closed the show with their bit of Chaplin-esque train-carrying theater… There was clearly some fascination with trailing fabric; a pair of cutaway coats did the same.

Elsewhere, Yamamoto’s pendulum swung wide. On the one side, there were looks so sporty—with channel drawstrings, zips of yellow stitching, and fab canvas tennis shoes—you might be forgiven for thinking you were seeing a Y-3 collection. The blocky, bright red, raised runway added to the game-day feel. And at the other extreme there was Yamamoto’s familiar take on French Revolutionary romance, featuring full skirts in built-up layers with paper-bag pleats, corseted waists, and what looked to be padded busts.” – Style.com
