Yohji Yamamoto, a Japanese Designer who made a revolution when he flocked to Paris to do his first showcase in 1981, has again done a fabulous groundbreaking show for Spring/Summer 2015. This time, he was able to break his own taboos of sexiness by injecting more sex appeal into his pieces, something that has never happened before in his previous collections.

His signature black and white colors were used with a touch of decadence, while revealing some skin with loosely cut dresses, golden tight shorts and one sided off shoulder dresses. Corset lookalike laces were also adorning some dresses, giving them a certain casual sexiness.

The "doll like" makeup with dusty eye shadow made the models look as if they came out from the dead, which makes the whole collection hauntingly unforgettable and reinforces the idea of an unusual classic beauty.

Yohji Yamamoto ended off his Spring/Summer 2015 collection presentation with a bridal dress showpiece which was decorated with flowers. "Sexuality and flowers beauty for me are the same", said the irreverent designer, and he further elaborated that, like humans, "flowers are not always beautiful". This could explain why all his shows defy the usual definition of what beauty is. What makes him such a phenomenal designer is that he always incorporates timelessness into his clothes and sacrifices himself for his own interpretation of elegance.

    He's been around for so long and her certainly has the balls to always go against traditional beauty. That's my guy!
