A 360-degree tour of the shows, from the invitations to backstage reports, grooming trends and venue highlights
The prevalent 'sports-luxe' trend that has permeated today's fashion landscape owes much to Yohji Yamamoto's Adidas collaboration, one that has surged in and out of cult status for over a decade. With a runway return to Paris for Autumn, Yamamoto was looking at a sort of urban superhero for Y-3's boys and girls, each ready for anything, racing to the finish line in zipped and tape-seamed outerwear cut from polished wools, nylon, leather and French terrycloth. An invitation exclaiming 'Stay Here I Will Get Help' prefaced the comic book graphics printed across parachute hoodies and tees, and seemed to explain the three-striped capes (or were they emergency blankets?) that draped across shoulders. Yamamoto even name-checked the 'couturiers of the 1960s' in the press notes, which explained the trim, tailored finale and the retro palette of ruby red, warm yellow and electric blue played against Yamamoto's classical black.
