Yohji Yamamoto unveiled his Fall/Winter 2022 collection at the label’s Aoyama flagship store in Tokyo earlier this month for the Paris Fashion Week schedule. In a very Tim Burton-esque hair and makeup, the models walked to the delicate soundtrack from the designer’s very own band. The models all wore white makeup and had pompous sculpted hair with grey powder details.

The designer’s all-black signature was prevalent throughout the collection as most of the pieces played with the idea of intermixing silhouettes and fabrics as opposed to focusing on pops of color. The suiting appears to have taken inspiration from the Dickensian British-era bloke. Frock coats were layered with waistcoats, baggy trousers, messily tied cravats and flowing white shirts reminiscent of those worn in the 1800s. The relaxed look goes hand in hand with Yamamoto’s staple slouchy silhouette. The pieces feature exposed seams and hems, a nod to the aesthetic most notably synonymous with one of Dickens’ most iconic characters, the Artful Dodger.

Amongst the collection, the surrealist work of Polish painter Zdzisław Beksiński are used as prints for some of Yohji Yamamoto’s pieces this season, including the leopard print patterned coats. The overcoats and suits feature splashes of navy, green and brown, resembling that of an artist’s brushstroke. Additional accessories including crucifixes, monocles, brooches and masks also made an appearance in the looks presented on the runway.
