paris fashion week update - yamamoto fix

The photos from the Yohji Yamamoto show are finally here!
The Fall 2008 collection offered another coveted look into the mind of the artistic genius who has been in the business of transforming fashion since the 1980's. Always avant-garde, his latest collection offered the usual fashion inspiration by way of new ideas, interesting form, and dimensional fabrics.
I loved the look of the rolled waists, even though they are realistically unflattering. Not wearable for the average woman, but Yohji's woman is anything but average. The collection featured his signature black along side a few pops of color and volume along side fitted form. The show ended with a 5-model walk to debut his leather portfolio bags, a collaboration with Hermes.
A fix for the fashion junkie.
