After a Pre-Fall 2019 collection, Yohji Yamamoto has revealed a Y’s Fall/Winter 2019 lookbook. Similar themes of embroidered pieces and draping silhouettes from the previous collection thread into the most recent range.
Japanese craftsmanship takes the centerfold of the atelier’s FW19 lineup, featuring a mix of wool fabrics, asymmetrical silhouettes and a range of pieces that can be worn inside out. Oversized coats dominate the lookbook with ankle-length parkas, a quilted tent-inspired jacket and sweeping outerwear. Military and tactical elements are present throughout the collection, especially in the trench coat inspired by British army uniforms in the first World War.
Other pieces feature pattern techniques lifted from Persian carpets, as well as textile embroidery created with 10 different yarn shades to create a 3D effect. On top of a plethora of coats, the imagery features a slew of cozy turtlenecks, boxy blazers, knitted winter dresses, wide-leg trousers and heavy-duty boots. Like the dark and moody lookbook, most items in the range come in black and muted tones, but there are a few pops of yellow, white and blue, as well as plaid patterned pieces.
