    Hahaha, unfortunately I don't think I'm going to go the cross dressing route to try some of this clothing...lol. Not to mention none of this would fit me...

    Thanks Cas, this is all so awesome.



    It's interesting that although Yohji is the master of black, he can also surprise us and use colors quite effectively.

    the 'colors' shown in this collection are signatures of his, pieces pop up in the same tones regularly throughout his womenswear seasons. Like that tan colored sleeveless blazer/dress was done in a wrinkled leather shirt jacket just last winter.

    This is the first time I've seen him use the colors on the runway though, which is I think what Scott was saying. His last few collections were pretty dark (except for those prints and the silver in SS08) and I quite like the colors used here.



    The unfinished leather pieces look amazing too, still keeps the femininity but has that extra edge to it. All in all, I always enjoy his womenswear collections far more than the mens. Comparing his fall mens to this womens collection....it's just no contest for me; The womens wins hands down.

    Great Caesar's ghost! This is what I'm talking about! Best collection to grace the walk all year! Love the draping coupled with the leather in the first pic/second column. As Cas said, the unfinished leather looks amazing. Particularly on the second, fourth and ninth pics of the first column. Love that hem of the leather panel. Love the elaboration of last season's knit and fabric interplay with the swap of knits for leathers. The rouching of the leather on the second pic/second column. The wool jacket with the short backless shawl/cloak...damn its all soooo good! Too much that's worth mentioning. This collection in its entirety is awesome! Details, details, details. Oh, the delicious details. Yohji delivers! And so does Casius. Thanks for posting all this golden goodness.

    Agree completely--the last two or three seasons have certainly been on the blacker side, but this use of color is typical of YY, if you have a look at even the recent archives.

    I'm not sure why you wrote colors like that.



    First off, I apologize for not remembering past collections. Cas is right, compared the last few collections there is more color use, regardless if it's the same colors or not.

    I wasn't saying that I'm surprised Yohji used color. My point was how well he can insert a color piece into an all black outfit and really make it work. His cuts and tailoring allow the colored pieces to really work much better than a more traditionally tailored piece.



    For example:



    If you look at the model shown and the model in the background, the black has the illusion of "seeping out" of the black.

    ^It's the grown up school girl effect, with the capelet and beret, paired with the slouchy trousers and chunky boots....absolute perfection. [64]



    I love that one you posted with overlaid houndstooth skirt, but I haven't seen any detail shots yet. Faust might be able to help out. [51]

    Laika, I felt you salivate all the way from Chelsea. The closeups are not up yet - I will check in an hour.
