Eschewing a traditional runway show, Limi Yamamoto hosted an intimate cocktail party in her Paris showroom. There, models in her Limi Feu cocooning creations mingled with guests and also appeared in a video projected in a loop.
This season the designer — whose muses include Patti Smith and Pina Bausch — went back to her comfort zone with a largely black-and-white lineup. Looks came in oversize, slouchy volumes juxtaposed with structured tailoring. There were exaggerated overalls and button-down shirts in men’s silhouettes, tops and skirts featuring lattice-patterned cutouts and a raincoat that morphed into a cape — all worked in her cool streetwear vibe.
