Yohji Yamamoto, Spring-Summer 2012

Yohji Yamamoto’s opening and his entire show to present his spring-summer collection for 2012 will be accompanied by the calm and sensual voice of the great George Moustaki. The only interruption will come from the inspiring chorus’ sung by the Amabile Chamber Choir and the Petits Chanteurs de Saint-Marc, with their magnificent rendition of “Ma liberté”. The measured rhythm on the catwalk is anything but frenzied, and is seldom shared by more than two outfits at a time. These aspects invite you to relax and fully appreciate the spectacle of a collection that blends and allows the musical score to tell the story.

Clothing items and music celebrate the best of Yamamoto’s sartorial expertise that is totally untouched by any stylistic conditioning in trends.

Minimalist lines combine with generous volumes in a challenging exercise in asymmetry and layering, draping and ruffles. Colours and imperceptible patterns as usual create that extraordinary synchronizing between modern and traditional styling in which the Japanese designer is an expert composer.

A season that dresses and celebrates a passionate, free, cultured and committed femininity that is almost poignant, in the poetic respect that Yohji Yamomoto manages to put together.

      Gentilissima Marianna, non solo ‘fa bene’ accorgersi che il nostro lavoro ha un suo pubblico, che viene seguito e magari apprezzato, ma ancor di più scoprire persone come lei! Ho visitato il suo link…beh, che meraviglia le sue opere, quanta gioiosa e poetica vitalità!
      Grazie, di cuore e chissà che, non appena torniamo a Milano, possiamo anche ammirare dal vivo il suo lavoro!
      A presto e buona serata Marianna!
