Paris: Moving away from the mostly-black ensembles we have come to expect from Yohji Yamamoto, this season the designer presented a collection of piled-on layers in an eccentric mix of prints and patterns. The silhouettes were relaxed, as usual, but awakened in a crazy quilt of camo, snakes, skulls, ropes, giant florals and Navajo motifs. — Anna Jane Davis
