Yohji Yamamoto: Y's Fall/Winter 2009 Preview

This is a sneak peek at Yohji Yamamoto's Y's Fall/Winter 2009 collection. Y's is casual sportswear that is effortlessley chic and always fashion forward. The all black look above is signature Yohji and the other two looks are perfect examples of how Yohji is able to imbue the most casual look with his unique aesthetic. I'm not normally a fan of clothing that looks like pajama bottoms, but the clever design behind these pieces paired with the striped and colorful plaid textiles is genius! Although the extreme drop-crotched pants aren't for everyone, I can't help but appreciate the avante garde aesthetic that these trousers are helping to define this time around. MC Hammer made drop-crotch pants famous in the '80s and twenty years later Yohji Yamamoto has shown us how an item may be refined and reinterpreted in order to progress a look or piece so that it is fashionably relevant to today's world.
