Couple points:

* Runway shows are as much to showcase the particular items in the collection, as they are to hint in a larger aesthetic shift. You seem to be saying that because Yohji shows prints in a runway collection, that that's how the prints should be worn. Also, there's a big difference between S/S collections and F/W collections, as with any designer, but you seem to be saying that his collections over the last ten years are almost entirely prints, which isn't true...

* Maybe instead of 'black/white' I should've said 'basic dark-hued colors' .

* Here's an example of what I'm talking about:

* I also thought it was obvious when I was talking about prints in response to the ones you posted (which were printed knits), I wasn't saying that those were the only prints in a Yohji collection...

Also what's with the "well you MUST not know anything about Yohji if you think this" attitude? Are you denying my characterization of his printed knits? You don't think the printed pajama pants- esque pants have a sense of playful humor about them? And you don't think that all of this prints are categorically different from tacky Armani Exchange and Express style prints that are just random lines and contrasting lame fabric appliques?

Okay, Teger, I'm not saying that that's how the prints should be worn, as I'm pretty sure you're well aware people can wear clothes however the hell they want, I'm just saying this is how Yohji has showcased them to disprove your point where you mentioned they tend to be worn without other prints, but instead with a more subdued outfit. Admittedly Yohji does do that with some looks, but you'll find that the majority of looks with prints tend to be paired with a lot of other prints and bright colours. I never once claimed that you didn't know anything about Yohji, clearly you do, it just seems you're generalising the yohji aesthetic off of what seems to be a fairly limited amount of resources. 

 

and yes, of course his prints are different from "tacky armani exchange ones", they're far superior, but they're not entirely dissimilar, and what you say there contradicts the statement preceding it, a lot of his prints are tacky and do have a subtle humour to them, and in that way are similar to the tacky armani prints you're talking about. (although admittedly a lot nicer and of a higher quality)

 

Just because you found a few examples of what you're talking about, that doesn't mean all of yohji's designs follow said examples, if you look back through the recent collections you'll see that most of them do not...

 

Anyway, I think it's pretty clear no one's going to win this argument, I give up now...

As Shah say's it's ketchup and mustard - perfect for hot dogs (I could ask whether it's a suitable topping for burgers but that might lead to another few pages of diversion wink.gif )

I think I need a higher necked long sleeve T with the sweater...

Had to pop into the office today and this was taken at lunchtime so it's a bit wrinkled...

I think its more that the Yohji prints are designed to be a little snarky and humorous, whereas the armani prints and such are (possibly) designed as and (most likely) view by the potential buyers as serious and "cool" or "good-looking." I realize that's pretty pretentious as a distinction but I think the attitude with which they were designed is important to think about when you view and examine the work. I also think the playfulness comes through in Yohji's designs.

I still don't know what this has to do with Ben's graphic tees, which I agree should probably go. Good looking graphic tees are few and far between.

Channeling a bit of TOG today. satisfied.gif




(Apologies for unkempt bedchamber, and for slovenly fit on the pants—they're my only khaki pants.)
