Yohji Yamamoto Men’s Fall 2022 – WWD

With all the splash of color covering Europe’s men’s runways, it’s good to know that someone will always be on the sidelines. And one – more often than not – is Yohji Yamamoto.

Due to pandemic-related travel concerns, Yamamoto has not been to Paris this season. Instead, he filmed a runway show in front of a live audience at the brand’s Aoyama flagship store in Tokyo, and it was shown as part of a men’s schedule in Paris.

Other jackets feature prints based on artwork by Polish artist Zdzislaw Beksinski. They’re smudged with green, gray, or rusty shades – like the artist’s palette – while the long, silky shirts feature a boney silhouette that matches the cool beer collection’s Victorian vibe. cool, this culture.
