 Lovely collection, great to see that Yohji's still got it after all these years. It's felt like there has been a bit of a deviation (in the purest sense of the word, not to imply a turn for the worse) in his menswear post - bankrupcy, starting around the 2012 seasons, and while I have thoroughly enjoyed this new chapter of his work I missed his older (early - mid 2000s) collections and FW15 has gone back to revisit that feeling / look while still keeping it new and...
SS15 Preorders up on Antonioli   https://www.antonioli.eu/en/men/designers/yohji-yamamoto
  SS14 Wide sleeve jacket, Paul Harnden Shirt, Y's For Men Red Label pants. More or less my uniform for the past few months.   Seems like it's slowed down a bit lately around here. SS15 Womens is in about 8 and a half hours, very excited for it and the discussion here that will follow :)
I went to see the exhibition on my second last day in Tokyo but the installations were scattered among many floors across 2 buildings and I didn't even know there was a mens section :(   Saw Mr. Sasada and he showed me the new canvas tote with his illustrations of the runway looks on it
SS14 Clearance sales started in Japan for all stores (Thank you shah for the tip), really weird timing since AW14 started a week before and now all the stock is replaced by SS14 again with the exception of a rack or two of AW14 basics.   Went to the Aoyama flagship, Isetan Men's, and Marui Men's department stores. Lots and lots of goods left all at great prices (30 - 40%) off but didn't find anything I really really liked other than a 3 button jacket at Marui today that...
Back from the Aoyama store.   All the sales staff were head to toe in brand new FW14 outfits, and dear lord they looked incredible, and styled the patterned pieces so well. I didn't think a full - pattered outfit could look that good and expected them to mix one patterned piece with simpler, black pieces, but they surprisingly looked incredible.   The first delivery only included about 4 racks, with around 20 - 25 pieces in total not including the accessories and...
I arrived in Tokyo last night, and visited the Aoyama store today, the last day of SS14.   I cannot begin to express in words how amazed I am.   The store interior itself is not very breathtaking compared to retail spaces of other brands eg. Comme des Garcons, Rick Owens, but has a "mature", "understanding", calm atmosphere. Might sound weird but it was truly a warm, welcoming environment.   The shop staff - This is one of the most inspiring things about Japan. Every...
Holy smokes, thanks for uploading all those!   Definitely a better appreciation for the subtle prints and the inner layers after looking through those.   Full video of the show and a random backstage clip with Yohji and Tadashi Kubo :    
Holy, I'm not sure if this has been posted before but it is amazing!   A segment from a Japanese show covering FW91 6.1 The Men :       I believe the two men being interviewed towards the end are Haruomi Hosono and Yukihiro Takahashi of Yellow Magic Orchestra.
