Yohji Yamamoto menswear Spring/Summer 2014

Minimalist but incredibly sexy. So was the direction taken by the iconic designer Yohji Yamamoto. Black, which is a classic of the brand was in full force for this season, yet we got to see some radiant colors as well.
Working mostly on shapes and volumes, Yohji Yamamoto surfs on the trend of the season, largely inspired by a laidback spirit (if the music was any indication). However, it is Yohji Yamamoto we are talking about here and as such, his take on the trend is personal, indeed.
Black and white and superpositions play an important role in the Spring/Summer 2014 collection and the designer reinterprets classical items of the men’s wardrobe his way : pants are “double-legged”, shirts and jackets get cutouts at unexpected places.
As the show goes on, more colors join the initial palette and we get to see kaki, blue, purple, yellow and orange. The motion of the clothes is fluid, breezy mostly thanks to the choice of light and fabrics such as linen or satin and the large place given to drapings and lengths.
A portion of the leg is usually exposed in this collection since many of the pants are mid-calf length and the “sockless” trend seems to still be in vogue. The more formal looks (suits) are shiny, more eveningwear-oriented.
The summery attitude that the Spring/Summer 2014 Yohji Yamamoto menswear collection reveals is supported by a refreshingly original casting (including a woman) composed of Lukas Sindicic, Chris Arundel, Theo Derville, Willy Cartier, Shane Gambill and Erik Andersson.
