Yohji Yamamoto - Menswear Autumn/Winter 2014/2015 Show in Paris (with interview)

Yohji Yamamoto invites his guests into his Parisian showroom to see his latest show which is intimate, multicultural and poetic as ever. The Japanese designer constantly reassesses himself, facing-up to new challenges and contemplating themes such as life and death. He highlights specific symbols such as skulls, red roses and snakes, printed on leather in bold, also striving to surprise viewers with bright colours, moving away from his trademark, intense black. The result: more floral prints on raincoats whilst elegant suits in camel, red and copper are teamed with studded boots. Yohji never forgets his rock’n’roll spirit. Biker jackets and even wide trousers sport zips at every angle whereas a black leather skirt is wonderfully wearable, much like the psychedelic patterns and shades that close the show.Interview:Yohji Yamamoto:This all started from my imagination, from after my death. I was working like a skull; originally, I had this feeling that life is long but sometimes very short.I wanted to play with the silhouette with the zips and by opening the zip, the outfit changes its shape.I just wanted to prove that Yihji can use colors, because I was always Christianized like I was doing “one bloc, always one block”. We need some craziness because as a creator, you have to be slightly crazy. Being a fashion designer, you cannot just design trends.Music from the show
