"I've done this job for 28 years and sometimes I feel like I've done everything," explained Mr. Yamamoto backstage. "This time I said to myself, Yohji, you must have fun!"The show, which was an ode to masked heroes like Zorro, ended with Yohji fighting and beating a male model, only to be knocked down to the floor by Freja. I guess knightess in shining armor is something we should now add to her resume. :)
Anyway, check out what some press are saying about it:
fibre2fashion: The show closed with a bang and the superhero theme came full circle as Mr. Yamamoto and a masked male model duked it out in front of the audience. Yamamoto emerged as the winner after the hardcore scuffle. That is, until tough-as-nails supermodel Freja Beha knocked the designer back down to the ground.
Racked: Finale! Yohji Yamamoto just practiced self defense in a laser circle, taking down a male model but beat by Freja Beha Erichsen. Of course.
Telegraph: And he even staged a mock “fight” where he felled a male model with a katate (sic) kick, but was then knocked down by a feisty supermodel, Freja Beha.
I guess her tough, androgynous reputation is well known, but in this instance I don't mind. So surprise number 1 of fashion week has already happened with this comical spectacle. I wonder what other surprises are in store for us? You know Freja always has a few up her sleeve every fahsion week. Whether they're good (like this one) or bad (like missing Paris fashion week) they definitely keep us all interested.
