Ms. Diana – Part 2

Diana was with us on last September 29th at La Cite de la Mode et du Design. She kindly shared her impressions about the Yohij Yamammoto S/S 2018 show.
Diana got it right. It is up to the wearer to finalize the work.

“(…) Trying to make things is synonymous with trying to live. Firstly, the garment’s pattern is drawn on a paper. The clothing is made and gets to be worn by someone. Then, it’s all about the Life of that person. That person gets sometimes angry, or sad. Falls in Love with someone, or ends up hating someone. When you feel unsecure, clothing could be a way to hide yourself, or change yourself. Clothing-making is like connecting with people’s lives. I’m actually suggesting you to become somebody else (…)”
-Yohji Yamamoto

"One of the most vital reasons that I wear Yohji Yamamoto is because his design speaks to me. Styling his garments enables me to construct a dialogue between my persona and the designer. And such “dialogue” is the very essence of the latest Yohji Yamamoto S/S 2018 runway show. This season has both consistently carried on the philosophy of the brand, de-construction and fabric-crafting, but at the same time provided something new.
In contrast to the Yohji Yamamoto A/W 2017 collection, which the highly sculpted silhouette and tight fittings enhances a very strong air of “what the designer think the pieces should be worn”, in this season, the key message has evolved from a statement to a question. The master is asking his audience “how would you style them?” In general, the collection presents a range of styles speaking to a variety of audience’s likings: the big round button series sparkles with youthful vitality; the naked-back looks are permeated with sensuality; the tops and trousers styled with bone shaped toggles shed the show with a ray of Punk… Open choices, is what Yohji Yamamoto is presenting us this time. Personally, what strikes me the most are the pieces trimmed with adjustable big round buttons. As by giving the wearers the freedom to customize and sculpt the silhouette, one piece of clothing is essentially made by the designer yet completed by the wearer, thus creating a dualistic, dynamic, complementary relationship between the creator and the wearer. The creator suggests and questions, the wearer answers and interprets.
To me, this collection is advocating that we are all a part of this artistic creation, we are all a part of this Yohji Yamamoto family. "

“The Pendulum of Love”

It was a clear intention from Yohji to make a collection with real clothing for real people. And the pendulum swung with all its strength to Punk, and then all the way to the otherside for Love.
Yohji didn’t tell his pattern-makers that he would cut out their garments in pieces, as seen in the very first scene of the show. Then, it was up to each pattern-maker to put them all back together, adding extra panels so as to make the garment substantially wearable.
All of the cut-out panels are trimmed with big round buttons so that you can play with them, sculpting the silhouette.

There were high-heels, and a whole series of naked-back revealing dresses in the show. Some of those codes that weren’t supposedly part of Yohji’s repertoire appeared somewhat casual and indifferent.

”(…) Yohji doesn’t need to be interpreted. Like good poetry, one just needs to let the soul be touched. This show was a particularly good outing, more punk than romantic, all asymmetric angles and sharp diagonals highlighting the poignant grace of gesture. It doesn’t get more Yamamoto than that.”
- Angelo Flaccavento for BOF
