(PARIS) Chances are, come winter, you'll need a coat--and if so, look no further than Yohji Yamamoto, who meditated on them almost exclusively in his Fall 2009 runway show. They are narrow and unstructured, buttoned-up or blissfully liberated from fastenings, weighed down with pockets or light and adornment-free as can be.
