Tail of two collections

After all the exquisite, porcelain-coloured leather and signature 'bat's wings' fronds in Rick Owens', Yohji Yamamoto's show was a more solid affair (literally). Lots of black and white suiting that we know and love; navy velvet too. It was amazing to see his architectonic tailoring turned towards the street, though, will a full section devoted to top-to-toe camouflage. Even more so, the crazy dinosaur-era theme that ran throughout: zig-zag Stegosaurus spikes flapping out from models' spines and in this finalé piece, elicitly captured backstage, a jaggy, traililing tail!
