yohji yamanoto

Model in Yohji Yamanoto styled by Grace Coddington for Vogue, September 2000.  Photograph by Arthur Elgort.

The color palate may be neutral but the layers and movement of the cloth make this photo anything but boring.  This sort of dystopic fantasy leaves the reader wanting more, imagining the story behind the woman and boy.  A good creative director (like Coddington) knows that a fierce model can add the right punch to take a spread to the next level.
