Yohji Yamamoto has defined Japanese fashion since 1977, debuting his namesake label defined by avant-garde silhouettes cemented in black. The designer is in a world of his own, becoming a master tailor, craftsman, and storyteller pushed to the present day.

Yamamoto’s Spring/Summer 2024 menswear collection explored the good, bad, and ugly sides of fashion, seeing his womenswear offering expand his dark and eerie universe. The showcase was held inside Paris’ city hall, originally built between 1535 and 1628 by Henry IV and Louis XIII. Grand carpeted staircases led friends, family, and industry insiders to a prehistoric room with glowing chandeliers, divided by a long, white runway where models debuted a cohesive collection of extravagant eveningwear.

Every look was clad in Yamamoto’s customary black palette, seeing peaked shoulders strongly accent buttoned dresses with a haunted aura. Deconstructed textiles dangled across the floor on sheer variations, while ruffled tulle took the shape of abstract florals grown in Yamamoto’s creative mind. Heart-shaped chained belts accented wide-leg trousers and cropped vests, followed by contrast-stitched suiting that cinched the waist to minuscule proportions. Circular embellishments bounced light off of tulle garments with a mind of their own, completing the collection with a slew of asymmetrical gowns.
