Yohji Yamamoto presented his namesake brand's Fall/Winter 2020 collection at Paris Fashion Week and it was meant to be a reflection of his tiredness with the fashion industry.
This reflective collection follows the climate crisis addressing Spring/Summer 2020 collection he presented. To express that he is a nonconformist and constantly trying to shake things up, the designer created one of his most eccentric collections in recent memory with plenty of color, patterns and designs.
While his usual flow and ebb from outerwear pieces, tops and bottoms still figures into the looks, exaggerated seams, cut and sewn pieces and colorful patterns are a refreshing chance from the usual black. As always, leave it to Yamamoto to pair oversized bags with suiting options and pull it off beautifully. Speaking with Vogue, the designer said the looks were supposed to come off as "Partisans." “I used to explain my spirit as anti-trend, anti-fashion. I kept saying I’m an outsider. Now the vocabulary is not enough. And I’m angry about what’s going on in fashion, so I have become partisan. It’s a word that people today assume is political. Or dangerous."
Take a look at the collection for yourself below. The designer's Y-3 label recently dropped a "TRAVEL" collection.
