Tsumori Chisato’s sense of fun and bohemian cuteness in fashion never fails to dazzle the runway. Her 2011 A/W collection made use of an array of colors and patterns from the tunic dresses, knitted leotards, and culottes which appeal to a wide audience of different age groups.

Some of the highlights from Yohji Yamamoto’s 2011 A/W collection were the flower and feather prints on black mesh, sheer woven tops, red coats, and hoop skirts. The visible cage under the skirts added a unique flavor to the overall punk theme styled with Dr. Martens and colorful cotton candy hair!

Let me guess what you’re thinking right now about the hair. It  kind of remind you of those rainbow hair russ troll dolls doesn’t it?

Yohji Yamamoto was heard saying backstage after his 2011 A/W show addressing the youth of today, “I felt, in this moment, we need flower power,” he said. “But at the same time, we need young people’s anger.”

I totally agree with him if he means that anger can be a much stronger and propulsive emotion than “flower power.” In the context of Yohji Yamamoto, anger is what may have fueled his accomplishments in creating beautiful and revolutionary fashion.
