Country & romantic

AFP/WWD – For his first show in three years, Shinpei Yamagishi chose a traditional Japanese garden as his venue. Models paraded among the trees, and pond, passing over bridges and up a stone staircase in the process.

Yamagishi incorporated country and romantic influences, which he mixed with a modern take on formal wear. Textiles were richly textured and often deeply pigmented: raised, thin stripes in bright orange, white and colourful flecks were seen on trenchcoats, pants and jackets, while a metallic, leaf-patterned jacquard in red and black was used for short-sleeved shirts and pleated, knee-length shorts.

Yamagishi also showed a variety of softly tailored suits: a shimmering navy one, a black version with an off-centre, double-breasted jacket and ankle-length skirt, and a baby blue iteration with wide-legged pants and a leisure-suit-inspired jacket.
