Designer YOHJI YAMAMOTO unveiled his Fall Winter 2021.22 POUR HOMME collection, that explores today’s world themes such as Global warming, human rights, social movements, sanitary emergencies, and animal protection. The collection stays true to brand’s DNA by using deconstructed and oversized shapes. Yohji Yamamoto presented collection with a fashion film, shot at the Aoyama Flagship store in Tokyo, on January 21st, as part of Paris Fashion Week. In charge of video direction and photography was TAKAY, with music from Jiro Amimoto. Beauty is work of hair stylist Takuya Takagi, and makeup artist Yuka Hirac.
“Models enrolled into Yohji’s army fighting the current world in crisis. Global warming makes us change what we wear. This collection presents the extreme difference between summery clothes and warm clothes. As for exemple the Yohji «aloha» shirt made out of printed silk with half-pants. Fine silouhettes in oversized coats, in a outwear style.
About the masks, Yohji-san wants to reflect that in our society people are wearing masks and some don’t. He wanted to focus on how people are wearing the masks in the streets (some people do, some don’t, some wear them in a very personal way). It’s not a judgment, it’s an obeservation of the streets.” – From Yohji Yamamoto
