BEAUTY: Clothing--Yohji Yamamoto

I love how Yohji Yamamoto cuts clothing. There is something inherently Japanese and lovely about the flowing cuts... reminiscent of kimonos or wide, loose samurai pants. But for his '12-'13 FW collection, he channeled that loose, lovely aesthetic through a Western European lens and what looks like references to ANNA KARENINA or Proust's IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME. A military reference showed up as well.

And I really love Yamamoto's continued dedication to using models who defy industry expectations. It is so inspiring and refreshing to see handsome men of age or of a larger (read: normal) size on the runway.
