Yohji Yamamoto RTW Fall 2019

“The shows today are definitely about selling clothes, and I get that, but shows used to be about selling fantasy and then you’d sell the clothing version. I miss that. And Yohji just shows it, he does it,” said seasoned model Coco Rocha, who was at Yohji Yamamoto as a guest, wearing a spring 2019 red gown that zipped like a puzzle and required a husband assist to get into.
She wasn’t the only fan in the audience. Diego Della Valle was front-row. “I like his clothes,” he said when asked why. Does he wear them himself? “Sometimes…but my wife 100 percent.”
Yamamoto’s latest creative outing was particularly lively, with his signature black draping technique expressing an undeniable wit at times. One coat had a particularly unusual flourish — a black gloved hand, middle finger extended, near the neckline.
Backstage, Yamamoto admitted it was a bit of an “f-you” to the fashion establishment, letting on that the collection was a throwback to the time before la mode, when do-it-yourself, make-it-your own handiwork was where it was at. Hence, the trailing loose threads, childlike hand-painting, colorful silly-string embroidery and crude white stitching that decorated his palette of long, lean black coats, skirts and dresses.
