Paris: Models walked out to quiet and serene music creating an overall sense of peace at the Yohji Yamamoto show. Monk like wrapped dresses were draped against the body revealing Sak Yant tattoos at the neckline and face. Masculine tailoring was minimalist and understated with blazer, maxi skirt sets and oversized button-up shirts. Hip-hop high tops juxtaposed the feminine velvet styles and draped robes. Yamamoto showed his artistic side with dark sculptural structures that perfectly contrasted his softer, draped silhouettes, creating jaw dropping statement pieces to close the show.  Jaclyn Jones
