Yohji Yamamoto epitomises modern minimalism for Fall 2016
Contained silhouettes and a monochromatic colour palette, Japanese fashion designer, Yohji Yamamoto brought modern minimalism to the next level with his Fall Winter 2016 show. “I wanted to create something very simple,” Yamamoto explained “It came from inside.” and as always the designer used cinematic elements to his restricted design strategies, however, with it's questionable notion of 'how long until minimalism gets maxed out?' Yamamoto proves that being free from extravagance is the most understated way of staying elegant in a modernistic manner. With narrow necklines and tailored jackets, the clean collection also showcased graphic text on the duster-like coats, with the writing ' Lord, I’m not happy here" and "I will be back soon". Mastering the art of recreating minimalism season after season, Yohji Yamamoto kept things fascinatingly complex in the simplest of ways.
