Hi, what began as a fancy fashion show with joyfully smirking children in wooly outfits, had a bizarre ending.

In fact, the performance, or fashion activity as the Japanese artist Yoshikazu Yamagata calls it, was a bold translation of two difficult topics into the space of fashion, well executed with a lot of details (cloth hangers, ropes, oversized clothspins, innocent children carrying crosses, long hair covering the sentenced bodies).

The number six collection #06 crime and punishment is not one of those easy, fast, and aesthetically pleasant shows, but you actually need to engage with the concept to understand and appreciate the fashion.
