Yohji’s Makeshift Manicure
Today marks the end of a whirlwind fashion month—and a Paris fashion week that was truly one for the ages (Givenchy! Balenciaga! Dior! Saint Laurent! Céline!). In an effort to process the good, the great, and the astounding things we’ve seen over the past nine days in the City of Light, we’ve been scrolling through pictures from some of our favorite shows and wanted to make sure you didn’t miss these. (Never forget we’ve got your best interest in mind, dear readers). Yohji Yamamoto’s Fall collection presentation this weekend was a standout because of the impressive tailoring and draping that went into his offering of all-black favorites—as well as the surprising pops of color that showed up toward the end of the show, including the bright red and cobalt-blue ensemble in Look 33. Those colors were also reprised on black leather gloves, in the form of square-shaped press-on nails—an interesting choice, considering both hues also happen to adorn two of the four rereleased fragrance flacons from Yamamoto’s cult-favorite perfume line that was just presented in Paris and will be resurrected this Spring (more on that soon). If these super-inventive accessories actually get produced, and any one of our intimate acquaintances happens to be reading this (and looking for a gift for us come fall), a pair of these would be more than welcome.
