Better pics via style.com iPad app follow post. Love the look of some of the fabrics used like the mesh look of one of the hakamas and how thin the fabric of the aprons look (perfect for me here!).

I think StevenE hit it on the head here and the idea that they look like cartoons is really spot on. Like fashion sketches, but also like looney toons lol8[1].gif. Very lunatic and disjointed collection, but also very fun and still in control. In an interview, Yohji said "Not so serious" when asked about the collection.

Look 7. Just calling them that because those pants share the same laced lower half like some iterations of the pants had from SS08. And at least it should be possible to tighten that area using the laces to create a similar silhouette. These ones of course may not have the suspenders or similar waist construction to the SS08 ones.

What a bunch of beardos! That could be one takeaway impression of Yohji Yamamoto's latest collection, which featured models who resembled rogue contestants from the World Beard and Moustache Championships. But once the eye grew accustomed to all the faux facial hair—bleached, fluffed, crimped, coiffed—it could focus on the madcap layering and schizophrenic sobriety.

The show got underway to the accompaniment of bagpipes, and the first half dozen looks seemed classic Yohji—jackets that buttoned slightly off center, superfluous pockets or attachments, and cropped, roomy pants. A Scottish message was delivered (with much creative license) by long sweaters over suits, kilts with fun fur inserts, and a single tartan suit in tablecloth red.

Often, the models would make contact with one another, for better or worse. There were salutes, shoulder brushes, and even a stink-eye or two. Presumably this was to underscore their eccentricity, but the clothes had enough to say on their own. Apronlike layers that draped low below jackets conveyed bartender braggadocio; animal-print knit robes and sweatpants screamed the language of Stephen Sprouse; and matted faux fur coats suggested pimps with a conscience. Too bad Yamamoto's nifty idea to add a line of buttons up a jacket's double vents was canceled out by the bulky, shaggy shorts that closed the show.

Afterward, the designer named August Sander, the revered German photographer from the early twentieth century, as a starting point. Yet if the models channeled Sander's portraits, they were equally absurdist. The collection was unhinged, but satisfyingly bold. When asked whether he felt this collection carried on the spirit of his previous work or represented a departure, Yamamoto answered the latter. How so? His next three—and final—words spoke volumes: "Not so serious."

August Sander is a huge influence on his work.

Haha so Yohji-San wimped out last min and went for the chin bit one only.

He went with the theme and ditched his usual uniform for a DB suit, looked ultra cool as always smile.gif
