Yohji Yamamoto SS 11

Yamamoto's moto for this collection "Dress up". He want men to take much more pride in the way they dress and also what they wear. The collection was inspired by the colonial times (Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, etc.) This time period is a great example of men who cared about fully dressing up and what they wore. The collection consisted of long polo shirts, oversized blazers with double lapels (seen a bit through the week), and antique looking flower prints. Although the top hats were not practical they brought the collection together. He did not stick to just a group of colors. There was one stand out orange suit;while purple and aqua was used also. For footwear he used dress shoes and slip ons (with the antique flower print) worn with knee high socks.
