Yohji Yamamoto Spring Summer 2015

"Do we ever find ourselves?" 

Words cannot do this justice. Anyone that may have questioned Yohji’s direction or sense of identity in past seasons will now eat those words.

Yohji is a designer who no matter the market has always stuck by his vision and this perhaps has not always been the best for business. Yet this is something I find so admirable as it shows such a confidence in his design.

I find such solace in Yohji and his timeless garments. Yohji will always be Yohji in most sincere sense and that reliability is unwavering.

Song for the Mute Spring Summer 2015 Roots

The title for the new collection “ROOTS” stems from the images of nature which the Designer was inspired by when creating the pieces. Her mood board was filled with pictures of branches, trees and roots reflecting the organic, raw and earthy feel of the materials and clothes. This collection also represents the putting down of roots on a new plateau in preparation for a journey forward into new ideas and personal growth.

Song for the Mute’s unique aesthetic encapsulates both tailoring and the avant-garde with a sportswear edge while still offering the highest quality fabrics and construction.

Rick Owens Men’s Spring Summer 2015

Leave it to Rick to always surprise… 
This collection was nothing like I was expecting and honestly by this point I feel like I should expect that from Rick. As a proponent for drop crotch pants even I’m intrigued by what appears to be some kind of tied sarong shorts but it’s hard to tell with the way this show is style. Many garments are worn in such unnatural ways tied and draped over the bodies of the models.

The whole show has a very obvious tribal feel to it with the styling and of course the body paint. Who could forget the body paint… a very bold choice. 

An interesting addition to the collection was the embroidered prints. These were based on a series of drawings Rick Owens team member Benoit had drawn for Rick and Michelle in previous years.

As well in an interview regarding the collection Rick Owens attributed some of the inspiration to ‘the ballet ‘Afternoon of a Faun’ 

"I was thinking about the ballet Afternoon of a Faun, choreographed by Nijinsky. It basically all culminates with this faun masturbating on a nymph’s scarf, so everybody in the audience, with all their jewels, are just waiting for this guy to hump the scarf. I love that!" – Rick Owens.
