Yohji Yamamoto – SPRING 2021 READY-TO-WEAR
To start, a series of white and black looks that gave the impression of splicing indoors and out—like crinkled, draped, and knotted bed linens with remnants of suiting. A series of minimalist, elongated silhouettes followed: weightless tailoring and raw-edged pants, or ankle-length shirtdresses freely traced with bias stitching. Gradually, he introduced structure and volume with characteristic randomness: loose belting placed high and low, bustle formations, cage skirts in twisted copper wire and leaf-like layers suspended in space. If Yamamoto was reinterpreting his repertoire, he nonetheless arrived at new expressions of non-conformity.
