Loose Threads: Yamamoto Edition

comingsoon_crop.jpg

For the record, we have a lot of respect for Yohji Yamamoto, and we don’t want him to stop indulging himself.

But when you’re dressing grown men like 60-year-old female librarians, it may be time to reassess your principles.

The worst part is, we can imagine exactly how this happened. The shirt got looser and looser, and longer and longer, and more and more tartan. We're betting Yohji didn't know he'd made a shawl until it was all too late.

As for the skirt...your guess is as good as ours.
