Yohji Yamamoto‘s Fall/Winter 2024 collection was a silent symphony of deconstructed silhouettes and geometric patterns, a stark contrast to the usual fashion week fanfare. The renowned designer, known for his avant-garde approach, channeled the spirit of Cubism, transforming classic tailoring into thought-provoking art.

Opening with an all-black ensemble, Yamamoto introduced the collection’s core theme. Cubic protrusions disrupted the clean lines of coats and jackets, creating a sense of fragmentation and movement. This interplay between form and function echoed the artistic influences, particularly the works of Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso.

The collection progressed with bold plaids and other geometric fabrics, their colors and patterns reminiscent of Cubist paintings. Hints of surrealism emerged as pieces incorporated contrasting linings, their construction held together by a single thread.

Yamamoto’s mastery of tailoring was evident throughout. Despite the unconventional shapes, the garments retained a sculptural quality, each piece a striking statement in itself.

A final group in gray offered a sense of quietude, the deconstructed elements receding into softer tailoring. This subtle shift hinted at hope, a potential resolution to the artistic tension that pervaded the collection.
