Recent work | Paris Fashion Week Men’s AW20 |Yohji Yamamoto

“Illustrator Megan St Clair scoured through the autumn/winter 2020 menswear collections during Paris Fashion Week Men’s, and did what she does best—dissecting her favourite looks through colours, silhouettes and interesting details.

Read her brief reviews of the shows and scroll through the illustrations in the gallery above to get a first-hand recap of some of Paris Fashion Week Men’s autumn/winter 2020 season’s promising showings.”

Yohji is known for his classic, well cut, black wonders—as ever this collection served same, same, but different. Knowing his client well adds to Yohji’s charm. Models went from draped shirting and sculpted hats to fastening-focused outerwear. From the outset you know what you will get as a base, but the combination of prints, playful extras and his multi-layer approach leaves you consistently looking further. A textured appliqué adorned suiting and wide leg trousers towards the end of the collection led to the beautifully dyed knits styled over suiting, lifting the mainly black collection with a flash of pillar box red and subtle blues. There is always so much to take in, surface level doesn’t exist with Yohji, and I certainly want to dig deeper.
