Limi Yamamoto opened and closed her spring show with a banner in the name of the children of Japan, which is still in recovery mode after a devastating year.

The street/punk thing she’s known for was present in the styling — Converse, mismatched tights and neon pasties visible under a couple of a looks — but Yamamoto built it into a vintage glamour moment that felt new, at least for her.
