A nomadic spirit ran through Yohji Yamamoto’s collection, with outfits that were spliced together like vintage treasures given a second lease of life.

Pebble-shaped scraps of white or striped fabric were roughly stitched onto striped suits with cropped pants, while military-flavored jackets featured randomly placed leather patches. Lightweight denim was worked into allover looks like dhoti pants and a layered jacket, swathed in a matching shawl. The Japanese designer toyed with off-kilter proportions, shifting the buttons of some jackets to the right and slicing others in half.

And it wouldn’t be a Yamamoto show without a little insider joke: Suits covered in broad brushstrokes had “missing pet” posters pinned to their backs. In among them was a “missing Yohji” notice.
