When I say it was more affordable, what I mean is that the barriers (both financial and creative) to entry were lower. The gatekeepers were not as entrenched and there was just not as much money to be made in the business as there is now. Now that commercial concerns are so much more pronounced and the entire system seems to require a hell of a lot more money to remain in business, it is very difficult to just focus on being a "starving artist" as it were. Unless one is...
Man, that article is all kinds of depressing. I mean, one tends to discuss this death of originality and honesty in what I guess is considered "modern day" design and art etc. but to read it laid out in such a matter-of-fact way really brings it home.Nobody can afford to be creative for the sake of being creative and still have an impact any more. The costs of being seen are just too high. People like Yohji who worked their way up have the cache to put their ideas front...
I don't think this version of the video has been posted before on here. Full show for AW2010 4.1 The Men.
Huh...don't think I remember reading any interview like that diniro. I originally thought it might have been the one he did with Azzedine Alaia, but only a passing mention was made to something similar where Yohji said:You sure he was the one?
So many great Yohji-related pics and videos on Tumblr right now. Here are a few pictures along with a link to a Yohji Yamamoto satellite webpage linked to an exhibition I believe of Yohji in Berlin from the 25th - 28th of April in collaboration with (or sponsored by?) Audi. Has loads of exclusive content on there including photography by a photographer called Monica Carocci. Definitely worth checking out! CLICK
Yeah, this is something that I have personally been working on myself. There is an abstract concept of how I want to look and feel when I have clothing on and while Yohji is a great base for that, I don't think it will be possible to achieve it using just one brand alone. Unfortunately, not a lot of brands that I have access to and/or know about come even close to what I am looking for, lol. I am waiting on Aitor Throup's clothing to come out and see whether it will be a...
Wow, that is pretty cool! I really love how Yohji has worked with so many cool creative people in different industries and in different capacities. It is even more interesting since he is older so it also covers a different crowd from that that is usually explored by fashion designers these days. It's not just hip hop artists and sports personalities, we also get some kickass people like Sakamoto-san. I wonder what concert that was... Found these pictures showing the...
Mmm, just to chime in as well with my own experience. Like p4 said, pants are a great foundation to start with. Some nice, wool gab tapered pants in your appropriate size will go with almost anything else you pick up from Yohji and should still be possible to wear with your existing shirts at least even if not jackets. Personally, I went pants -> shirts -> blazers and then started accumulating other pieces at random and more unique pieces. If at all possible, I would...
Thanks Caveat! Since the top is a Tshirt it only comes in size 3 as per usual Yohji modes operandi so you won't have any issues. Will fit a little bit bigger on you since I am slightly taller, but since you can tuck the shirt as you want to thanks to the hem, you shouldn't have a problem . I was almost tempted by the look 31 iteration on ln-cc in the cupro blend I think? The batik will be pretty expensive I imagine...and I am sure is sold out already in Japan, but will...
Yup, both from Atelier. Pants are definitely sold out like Rudo mentioned, but not sure about the tshirt since it is not listed on the site. Might be worth shooting them an email if you are interested.With regards to ln-cc, I feel their penchant for sizing down on their regular model really doesn't work at all with Yohji (it could be argued it doesn't work with most brands on there either, lol), both due to the model's proportions and also because, well, the clothing is...
