Making a stand for blow-up couture, and taking fashionable upcycling to the next level, Yohji Yamaoto channels a sink or swim mentality. For its 2011 Spring/Summer show, a yellow lilo skirt was paired with a statement slogan t-shirt that emphasizes individuality, an effective anti-fashion statement.
Recalling the childlike appeal of the lilo, Yamamoto's skirt flared out from the hip in sun-ray pleats. The prim, to-the-knee length recalls Louis Vuitton's Fall/Winter full skirts, yet Yamamoto's blow-up couture takes ladylike dressing to a completely new level.
