Limi Feu S/S 2010 / PFW / Day one

Limi Yamamoto continued to crib from her father’s codes for spring. Black and white, a splash of red, denim and polkadots all made their way into this collection, which was mostly about oversize clothes punctuated with punky, spiked accessories. Crisp white shirts were generously cut, some with floppy folded cuffs and outsize armholes. Pants came pleated or gathered into billowing parachutes. Aside from a few cropped hemlines and cutaway shoulders — one of the best effects on vests and jackets with slashed sleeves — Yamamoto cloaked all womanly curves, to an extreme with the show-closing run of ultraexaggerated tent dresses. As a contemporary spin on her father’s vision, Yamamoto’s lineup proved she can do daddy’s little girl. But Limi’s name is on the door, and it’s time for the younger Yamamoto to find a voice of her own.
