YOHJ JUN VIV
While I was out – finally recovered and having a good time with drinks with work friends, pizza that didn’t give me food poisoning, one of the funniest/dumbest movies I’ve seen in a long time (Fubar II – it’s filmed in my hometown and province), my introduction to Settlers of Catan (not my thing, I’m afraid), and a good looooong sleep – my top 3 big name designers were busy showing their S/S 11 collections in Paris. First up was Yohji Yamamoto, whose collection is quite likely going to be my favorite of the season. While he did go for some psychedelic prints (which I’ve ignored here) that fit in with the colour, colour, colour theme of many other S/S 11 collections, his main palette of black tugs at my heartstrings. Especially because it’s full of long black dresses and skirts that are paired with military boots (…or flip flops). This is my look. Pairing slightly dressier black dress with my extra high Converse monochrome shoes, with leggings when it’s colder. Love it.
