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.
Short video of the collection up :     Really love that Chinese style jacket in look 1. The more oversized one is great as well but I don't like the "Yohji Yamamoto" written on it.   Fantastic collection overall, hope the prices are not as high as FW14, been seeing alot of talk about how unusually expensive it is - somewhat understandable with all the prints and hardware, though.   Actually, can anyone speak on this? Are FW collections usually more expensive than...
Anyone know how exactly new season releases work?   I know that previously, FW has been released mid July in Japan, but I see that some locations already have a few FW14 "pre" collection pieces in, like some from regulation etc.   When the collection is released, is anyone free to drop by, or is it an appointment based type of deal? Or is that only for the showroom previews? 
Speaking of SS00, what a coincidence! I am actually at my friend's studio right now - he just got back from a trip to Japan and bought some Yohji pieces, and while trying them on I just found one from SS00! Pretty cool
Ah yeah my first thought was that he meant "objects" but I thought that it might have just been a poor translation by the publication that put out the interview, how you put it makes alot of sense too. Thanks!Ah no, I just thought it was an interesting piece. I've seen this coat a few times recently, 3 on rakuten and 1 on Yahoo Japan, but I think some of those might have actually been the same piece being bought and resold by the actual second hand shops themselves.You...
    YYPH Spring / Summer 2000 Hangul Print Coat “전에 한 직원에게 ‘센스가 좋다는 것은 무엇을 의미하는 것인가’ 라는 질문을 받은 적이 있습니다. 나는 그때 ‘글쎄, 안다는 것이 아닐까’ 라고 대답했습니다. 사물을 안다는 것은 매우 고통스러운 일이죠. 지적으로 되면 될수록 타인 혹은 자기 내부의 자신과 충돌이 일어나기 때문입 니다.’멋’이란 이런 일종의 고통이랄까, 안다는 것에서 오는 당혹함에서 발생하는 미묘한 표현이라고 생각합니다. 제가 목표로 하는 옷이란 알기 시작한 사람들에게 무엇인가를 전하고 싶다는 마음에서 출발했기 때문에 모르는 사람, 고통이 없는 사람에게는 전혀 필요하지 않습니다.” "An employee of mine once asked me ‘what it means to have good taste’. I replied, ‘perhaps, it is a...
