Limi Feu does Alice B. Toklas in Paris
Limi Feu (born Limi Yamamoto), aka daughter of Yohji, took her fashion name “Feu” (“flame”) right out of a French dictionary when she began showing her collections in Paris two years ago. She had some intricate shoes to fill given her father’s sharp cut cloaks, architectural trousers, hoofed shoes, and all black interpretive clothes. Yamamoto always meant rock n’roll meets philospher’s son or androgynous daughter with wings. And Limi turned out several collections in the past few years that took the quirky cloaked, strapped, androgynous aesthetic and turned it a bit more romantic and whimsical, to wonderful effect. (See below from last year) Sadly though, her current inspirations rest solely in the grim dyke of the 1920′s, more Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas. FUGLY.
Limi Feu, in prettier days….. BUT!
This spring, Limi turned out looks like these, from Paris this week
