This is my last chance to hype Robin Givhan's wonderful article about the fall collections that negated the body:
Yamamoto ignores the essential shape of a woman's body to construct a collection that speaks of the space that one takes up in the world. By super-sizing his clothes, he makes the body seem that much smaller and insignificant.
These are clothes about drowning in menswear, pushing aside extra sleeves and collars. It's smart while very fashionable; the clothes that transitioned from this show into stores are great: the year's best trenches, some fantastic takes on the sportcoat and, of course, perfect tailoring.
To understand these clothes, I recommend watching the runway show on Yamamoto's website . The cut allows for perfect and fluid movement. Despite the extreme volume, nothing ever appears clumsy or sloppy. Oh, and there's blue eyeshadow!!
