The clothes had a timeless ethereal quality and flowed on each models distinct frame.
The invitation for Yamamoto's show depicted a portly silhouette of a gentleman and the message for the show followed the designer's philosophy for dressing individual characters and real people. From scrawny to chubby models, and with ages spanning from seventeen to seventy, Yamamoto presented a formal collection rooted firmly in loose tailoring. The clothes had a timeless ethereal quality and flowed on each models distinct frame. Classic Yamamoto signatures in pin stripe suiting and voluminous shapes were evident while patchwork dog tooth suits and heavy wide leg trousers were distinct. Bright red as seen at Vuitton was used on floor sweeping velvet coats, and over sized fishermen jumpers were decorated with bones and red lips. Yamamoto has always followed his own path for menswear and this season was another indication of the designer's craft in sculpting fabric into distinct three dimensional forms, and in doing so appealing to a diverse artisan informed customer.
