Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread)

post #1 of 5751

Love Yohji's work?
Curious about it?
Think it might work for you but scared to take the plunge?
Looking for good deals on Yohji clothing & merchandise?
Want tips and advice on pairing Yohji with other designers?
Want fit pics?
Building a wardrobe?

Inspired by _yoo's post over on RFT about the need for more designer specific threads, I have decided to take the plunge and create a designer thread dedicated to my own favourite designer. I know Yohji is not one of the more popular designers on here, but maybe this thread can help a little bit with that. Please feel free to add information, images, interview excerpts or ask questions. Everything Yohji should hopefully go here.

Asobu where are you?? peepwall[1].gif

Anyway, some information:

Yohji Yamamoto currently has 6 main lines. Yohji Yamamoto (women's line), Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme (men's line), Y's (women's diffusion label), Y-3 (adidas collabo), Yohji Yamamoto +NOIR and S'yte (online-only T-shirt and accessories line).

Legacy Lines include Y's for Men, Yohji Yamamoto Costume D'Homme and COMING SOON.

Design aesthetic and philosophy.

Yohji is known primarily for his baggy/loose/unstructured/anti-fit silhouettes cast in flowing black wool gabardine fabrics and elements of androgyny in his work. He is also known for asymmetry, distressed finishes and textures, raw seams, intentionally disheveled looking clothes and using traditional Japanese textile techniques (dyeing, wrapping and embroidery) and creating clothing that envelopes the wearer like loose fitting armor.

As a fashion designer, Yohji Yamamoto generally exists outside trends and creates clothes that are inspired by his homeland, Japan, as well as multiple cultures around the world. If he could be said to have a unifying theme throughout all his work, it could be that he attempts to design clothes that have already aged even before being worn. Clothing that wraps around the body in the same way that one's favourite sweater or jacket does after years of use. A familiarity that brings with it a coziness and security that cannot be found in brand new clothing that has just been picked up off the rack. To protect the wearer and his/her identity from prying eyes. Or to project this identity from the comfort of a familiar and comfortable fort.

Yohji's clothing may seem difficult to wear and acquire, but paradoxically, they are made for the everyman and everywoman. Clothing that can be thrown on without a care in the world and without concessions to what is in vogue today or was in style yesterday. The Yohji man should know that he is not perfect and most likely, never will be. And that's okay. It is with this arrogance and humility that one wears Yohji Yamamoto's clothes.

Sizing advice

Please bear in mind that the sizing information below is strictly a guide and that as always, getting measurements or trying on the items themselves is the only way to know with any sort of accuracy whether a piece is going to work for you.
Quote:
Older Yohji pieces were sized with the typical S/M/L labels. The more recent collections use a numbering system with 1 being the equivalent of XS/44, 2 - S/46, 3 - M/48, 4 - L/50, 5 - XL/52...With the FW11 season, stores in the US and EU have gotten items in sizes 1, 3 and 5 with 1 being the rough equivalent of 1 and 2, 3 being the rough equivalent of 3 and 4 and 5 being approximately 5 and 6. It was only for some tailored items like shirts and jackets from what I understand, and not across board.

Asobu on Yohji sizing -
Quote:
The term one-sized gets thrown around a lot but in fact very few pieces in a certain collection are produced in just one size, if any at all. The garments that are generally one sized are knits and t-shirts, those are often just produced in sz 3 (roughly equivalent to M/48). Some pants are one sized but those are quite rare, at least for the last 10 years. The ss08 ronin pants with the button construction is the one pair I can think of from the last few years, though there might be a few others I've missed. In fact, he's done several pants with clever button construction on the waistband that still came in different sizes (for instance aw04).

However, post-03/04 the pants are cut quite generously in the waist. It's not totally uncommon for pants in sz 3 to measure 18"+ in the waist - though there are exceptions of course - they are indeed meant to be bunched up with a belt or worn with suspenders, and they do fall correctly on the body. The specific pair (I think) you refer to definitely came in sz 2 and 4 as well, though it should be mentioned that those are some of the widest pants he's cut during the last few years and might not be the best place to start if you've never worn Yohji before. The typical YYPH cut is the wide pants with drawstring in the waist, those often come in the regular size set 2/3/4 and are huge in the waist. The ones on LN-CC this season measured 43" in the waist for a sz 2 (S).

About sizing in general:

The regular size run is 2, 3 and 4. This aw11 season they changed it up a bit and started selling 1 (XS) in the west, before those was usually only sold in japan in very small numbers. There are also sz 5 and 6 for the western market (not sold in Japan), those are also quite rare. A sz 6 is never ever a one size item though I've seen some sellers claim them to be.

A good way to approach Yohji sizing is to think about height rather than width, if you're tall you should probably size up one so the inseam is long enough, no matter how the waist is cut. This goes for jackets as well, you get the intended balance in length and sleeve length. It's a common "mistake" to size down because the measurements look big, remember that it's often better to size up than down when it comes to Yohji.

Also note that this refers to the mainline, the Y's pants are often cut considerably slimmer in the waist (with exceptions as always).

Great thread idea! My own wardrobe has stabilized around a point where it is probably no longer easy (or financially viable!) to incorporate anything distinctively Yohji other than footwear, but I've always appreciate him from afar and wanted to learn more about him and his clothes. Will definitely be monitoring this thread and contributing what I can.

There are tons of runway photos on GQ, but here are the two most recent collections in high resolution:

With regards to sizing -

Older Yohji pieces were sized with the typical S/M/L labels. The more recent collections use a numbering system with 1 being the equivalent of XS/44, 2 - S/46, 3 - M/48, 4 - L/50, 5 - XL/52.

I personally wear a size 50 which I find is equivalent to a size 4 in almost everything he makes and I get the desired oversized fit with most things. With the items that are not meant to fit oversized, this sizing has still worked for me.

Now, there are some items that are made in one-size and these items are usually just given a label with size 3. These will work for most sizes of individual and usually incorporate some form of waist adjustment (for pants) or are just made to look different on different individuals. So, if you see some items in a size 3 only, they are generally meant to be one size fits all. A lot of his knits tend to show up in size 3 only.

The cargo pants I got that look like Samurai pants are an example of one size fits all, with a clever button-based system for adjusting the waist and two sets of buttons on the legs for adjusting the width of the taper.

With the FW11 season, stores in the US and EU have gotten items in sizes 1, 3 and 5 with 1 being the equivalent of 1 and 2, 3 being the equivalent of 3 and 4 and 5 being the equivalent of 5 and 6. It was only for some tailored items like shirts and jackets and not across board. Yohji sizing is pretty consistent though so if you are a 50/L just look for a size 4 and you should be fine.

The ideal of course is to try on the clothes themselves, but I know that can be quite difficult due to the limited availability of the brand.

Will definitely be monitoring this thread and contributing what I can.
There are tons of runway photos on GQ, but here are the two most recent collections in high resolution:
Spring 2012

Fall 2011

Thanks a lot for those _yoo. Was gonna post them up as well so you definitely helped me out. Really excited by SS12 and already trying to see what I can do to get my hands on the pieces as early as possible icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Yohji is great. I don't know if I could wear a lot of his runway stuff, but I can totally relate to the mix of classic tailoring and flowy Japanese elements. I really like a few things from the SS12 collection like the cropped pants and some of the overcoat/wraps. Also this nehru suit is awesome. I could totally wear this.

Some of my fave Yohji men's collections/shows. His clothes are best seen in motion so that the flow and drape of the fabric can be appreciated.

Spring/Summer 2000

Autumn/Winter 2008

Spring/Summer 2012

I also really like Autumn/Winter 2009 but can't find a video for it anywhere. frown.gif

In my experience, the runway stuff can be worn without much fanfare if put together with the right pieces. I like Atelier and LN-CC's buys usually because they tend to get a lot of the more wearable pieces from the collections I have seen so far.

That suit is indeed awesome. There are so many nice pieces from the SS12 collection. Really like a lot of the jackets.

Love that mail-moth look above.

Another thing I love about Yohji is his footwear. Much of it seems inspired by youth culture classics like Docs, Palladiums or Chucks. I love a chunky boot with a relaxed suit.

Haven't worn boots in years, but I am currently working on getting them back into my wardrobe for the very same reason. happy.gif

Here's a nice interview with Diane Pernet that I quite like because of the way Yohji describes his brand -

What I've always enjoyed too about his shows is how the model's hair is styled.
