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. It was a small but heartfelt touch for a cause that’s close to home, and the show felt more personal too. She took a Japanese approach to rockabilly style and spliced it with playful clown clothes — blue suits with thick white piping and buttons and a series of looks that were split down the middle, one side black, one white. 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.
