Yohji Yamamoto Spring 2013 RTW

Launch Slideshow

SHOW: Yohji Yamamoto, Spring 2013

Theme: Secret vixen

ACCESSORIES: Neutral lace-up sneakers and booties; feathery hats

OVERALL TAKEAWAY: Yamamoto is legendary for his androgynous minimalism, and this show was no exception.

Most of the looks were monochromatic: white on white, red on red, gray on grayer. But there were little surprises and exquisite tailoring in every piece, from a white coat with delicately puffed shoulders to a single strap anchoring a flowing black dress.

The accessories showed a side of whimsy, giving the clothing basics a much-needed kick. Many of the looks were paired with delicate hats made of light-colored feathers, but there was also a big chunky white necklace that wouldn't have looked out of place on Betty Rubble and a veiled cap that almost acted as a shroud. 

And there were also the occasional bits of skin, including several bared midriffs poking out from under asymmetrical jackets.

Who ever said minimalism meant simplicity?
