Runway Editorial FW24

A calm and stylish Sunday on the contemporary metropolitan sidewalk is what Yamamoto his show felt like. Models walked together, alone, and gazing at each other; there was no pressure, and it was palpable through the entire show. Let’s have a look at one of Japan's most beloved designers!

Yamamoto’s silhouette is already firmly defined and beloved, and his AW24 collection is complementary to this legacy. Fabric and design are always carefully attributing the final result of each piece; from floral motives on duster coats to striped motives on short jackets; each piece comes to its justice, without being ‘overseasoned’. We always find joy in the attention Yamamoto puts to the details, playful buttoning and nonchalant sizing makes the collection feel approachable and contemporary.

The show also was full of familiar faces and gave a romantic feeling, Wim Wenders walking the catwalk with Hannah O’Neill, and other familiar faces attributed to the easygoing atmosphere in a very natural way. We also find illustrations of Kié Einzelgänger on the back of some garments.

This collection comes naturally to Yamamoto, and even in his 80’s, he can freshly communicates his unique aesthetic.

Through the lens of our photographer Karsten, the essence of the show is portrayed in this editorial, highlighting the atmosphere in black & white.
