Yohji Yamamoto Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection – Paris Fashion Week

Yohji Yamamoto unveiled his spring/summer 2016 collection in Paris Fashion Week.
Yamamoto’s spring collection was brimming with the fashion for which he’s famous. Black. Wrapping. Draping. Deconstruction. Sophistication.
Black fabric came gracefully draped and knotted around the body in asymmetric versions of Greco-Roman and Japanese robes. Lean and sensual, flashing flesh here and there, the silhouettes took on an urban tone when paired with high-top sneakers. In a shift to corroded romance, corsets overflowed with fabric and boning over layered hoop skirts. It segued to an artful street vibe with graffiti in the shape of hands on a cutout bodice. A black corset dress, cut up and draped over a broken-down denim cage skirt and jeans, provided the collection’s most current and cool Moment.

Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection -Paris Fashion Week

Designer Alexander Wang left Maison Balenciaga.Today,02.October 2015,he unveiled his last collection designed for the Balenciaga House.Wang will now focus solely on his eponymous fashion house based out of New York.“
Back to Wang’s  last Balenciaga Show:  it seems that his swan song was the freest of any of the collections he did for the house, and the most tender.
„When you know it’s your last anything, you say, ‘Let’s take a risk,’ what do you have to lose?” Wang said backstage. “At a house that’s known for innovation, I thought, ‘Let’s think about it the opposite way, let’s think about fabrics and shapes that feel supple and simple, but approach them in an artisanal, couture way.’ ”
Ivory silk-satin dresses streamed in ruffles, while white feather garlands were wrapped and draped and appliquéd on layered tops, smocked cotton summer dresses and playsuits. Elsewhere, there were beautiful scoop-back, finely knitted wool slips with embroidered lace inserts; sumptuous matelassé jackets and lace hotel-room style slippers, all of which glided out on a soft, dusty pink carpet beside gently rippling water installations. Every look was a dreamy shade of white, from the ruffled slip dresses to the low-slung trouser and crop top pairings.

Undercover Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection – Paris Fashion Week

 Undercover designed by Jun Takashi unveiled spring/summer  2016 collection . The showwas  at the Cirque d’Hiver, in Paris,of course.
Jun Takahashi’s Undercover collections usually have a message, but you don’t have to get his deeper meanings to appreciate what he does. „The people need to be strong,” he said. His backstage sentiments jibed with a soundtrack that featured a live version of the Rolling Stones’s song for the have-nots, “Salt of the Earth.”
Takahashi came at his insurrectionary message both subtly and less so. To start, he mashed up jackets and coats with backpacks to give his tailoring a ready-for-battle attitude. There were zip-up pockets front and back and on the hips; some jackets were so transformed that their fronts were mere straps covering bare breasts. It could’ve been a silly exercise, but Takahashi is a clever tailor, with a wicked sense of humor. In another sign he’s down with the people, he co-opted low-culture concert T-shirts for high-fashion purposes. The Stones’s young faces stared out from inside the four suits of a card deck on a miniskirt and at the hems of pants. For every “have-not,” there’s a “have.” Takahashi turned playing-card royals into a print on blazers with the kings’ and queens’ eyes blacked out like the don’ts on a do’s-and-don’ts list.
