    thanks, Inaya

    don't know how I feel about those hand prints on the shoulders - mostly everything is gorgeous, though.

    the constant use of shades is a cool touch...as is the solely black/white palette...the models feel quite frail in this presentation, a lot of the clothes are barely hanging on them?

    not my favorite Yohji women's collection of late, but it's good ol' Yohji.

    this is an interesting contrast to his S/S 09 men's collection...which presented man as aging, whereas this feels refreshingly young and cool.

    Lots of sunglasses, too. I smell another collaboration.

    I think that I am kind of liking the jackets too, especially this one the more I look at it. But final determination upon in person viewing.

    A solid collection of unfussy clothing done in a way only Yohji can, made for women to work, to love, to live their lives in.
    To me there's a definite sense of continuity with his mens S/S 09 collection where he showed a suit collection, an everyday uniform for the Yohji man. This collection is for his women. He also explores further the Dior 'new look' silhouette of 1947, continuing from his last season.

    As much as I love Yohji I was left wanting a little more. Granted it IS a S/S collection, but seemed to be lacking some of the dramatic flair evident in his last S/S collection of dark swathes of flamingo ruffles and sharp silver looks. In fact, some of the simpler black looks would look right at home in a + NOIR collection. But in the end, he wins me back with a ethereal signature sweeping white dress, and the small mudra prints of last looks remind me that equanimity is a virtue, and that it is weaved into the fabric of these garmets.

    Solid collection. IMO Yamamoto is one of the best designer ever grace the fashion world.

    Very much agreed.
