Yohji Yamamoto SS17 Show : Rue Saint-Martin, 115
This season during Paris Fashion Week, a very interesting meeting point for the fashion savvy of the industry was at 115, Rue Saint-Martin in Paris. That’s where Yohji Yamamoto showed his summer/spring 2017 menswear collection.
Noticed how dedicated the Yohji fans are ? Well, they aren’t the only ones to blame. Yohji Yamamoto himself altered his models into manly-men. Extra facial hair for every single model plus bandages around the head, neck and wrists. You’d think all that hair was too much to carry. Think again.
However backstage the boys were having loads of fun with their facial hair extensions and bandages.
Furthermore Yohji caught the attention during Paris Fashion Week Men with his sense of humor expressed in statements. “Yohji is for hire”, “I am a slump”, ” I’m hurrying” and “Wait until dark” were painted on the backs of his coats. The mastermind collection consisted of loads of patch work, repetitive painted illustrations of Yohji Yamamoto’s face, the usage of linen fabrics, stripes, oversized coats worn inside out. What a genius!
Julius SS17 show : Avenue Parmentier, 14
Hopping from backstage to backstage, from show to show. Next on the list was avant-gardist street brand : Julius. Edgy yet wearable, the collection features head bandages ( as seen on Yohji Yamamoto’s runway ) , monochrome combinations in beige and nude tones. Yet again backstage the mood was so relaxing.
