The Yohji Yamamoto Spring 2016 ready-to-wear collection featured asymmetric shoulder baring, toga style garments, draped wrap-around looks accented with oversized knots, and corset dresses that revealed hints of cage skirts. The designer used a predominantly black palette that included a marble tie-dye print, and a bright red closing number.
