Yohji Yamamoto Opening at the V&A - Beauty (Part 2)

So, not surprisingly, I was drawn to this stunning former model in her daring yellow Comme De Garcons A/W '10 poncho...Er, except that upon investigating, this innovative design turned out to have come directly from the shelves of non other than the local garden centre. £3.50! How ridiculous did I feel! And I loved being fooled by my own snobbery...
