Found this on eBay, but dunno whether it fits the bill or whether you have seen it already.

Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 70post #1036 of 64835/1/12 at 8:25amThread Starter
Styleforum Top Pickspost #1037 of 64835/1/12 at 9:45amNot sure what I think about Yohji directing a film. It could go either way to be honest in terms of the final outcome, I am very happy that he eels to be stretching his wings creatively more and more though. Which bodes well for the coming seasons I think (provided he doesn't get caught up with being a filmmaker and saves all the creative energy for the movie itself...).
Interesting news. I think it could be great if the movie costumes would be available as a collection in YY stores if he is putting lot of work on those.post #1038 of 64835/1/12 at 9:57amThread StarterYeah that sounds like it would be really cool .
The collection would have a very nice theme to work with as it could be inspired by the movie instead of having outfits straight out of it. That way we get the visual feast of the movie (and he gets to not inadvertently use the movie to market the next collection) and we get a great collection with thematic or just conceptual links to the movie.
I wonder what it would be about. Would be great to be surprised and end up getting a science fiction movie or comedy, hehe.post #1039 of 64835/1/12 at 11:11ampost #1040 of 64835/1/12 at 1:15pm
Well, Tom Ford´s " A single man" was a pretty good movie. Wardrobe and aesthetics wise it was great. if Yohji has a good script in his hands, he seems like the kind of person who could make a film work. He´s obviously very smart and talented, it´s just a matter of extrapolating that into the movie.post #1041 of 64835/1/12 at 1:25pm
I just posted this Y's for Men trench coat on Ebay, if anyone is interested:post #1042 of 64835/1/12 at 1:56pmpost #1043 of 64835/3/12 at 1:32pmThread StarterYeah to be honest, I have high hopes for the movie, at least from an aesthetic standpoint (cinematography etc.) as Yohji obviously has a good eye based on the photographers he has worked with in the past. Worst case scenario, it will turn out like Daft Punk's Electroma which was great visually and had great music but was not so hot as a film.
Speaking of movies and Yohji. I thought I would post some clips from Wim Wenders' movie, Until the End of the World for which Yohji apparently did over 500 costumes for! From traditional Japanese costumes to the more usual deconstructed Western suits and so on from Yohji's repertoire, very nice outfits from what I have seen so far. Haven't seen the film itself though.
Longer clips:post #1044 of 64835/3/12 at 2:45pmpost #1045 of 64835/6/12 at 4:09amThread StarterQuote:
It certainly does. It's very likely as well. Yohji is not credited as the costume designer on the film so it is possible that he really just designed a lot of costumes for the movie at the direction or request of Wim Wenders and the costume designer while they still got pieces from other designers to round it all off. It's also possible they just used clothes from his line in the movie. Really like quite a few of the jackets in the clips above. Shame there's so little info out there about things like this with regards to Yohji.
I saw a painting Yohji did in the Paris flagship store when I visited a few weeks ago. Found a photo of it via Flickr -
He is reminding me a lot of Takeshi Kitano right now actually. Would be cool if he got him to help out with his first cinematic endeavor behind the camera. Hehe.post #1046 of 64835/6/12 at 4:26amThread StarterAnother Filep Motwary photo from Hyeres 2012.
Also, some video of the Hyeres 2012 exhibitions. Yohji has a small section near the beginning and they show some of his clothing that they are exhibiting.
If anybody is interested in having a look at the Hyeres 2012 fashion show have a look here.
Edited by Ivwri - 5/6/12 at 5:36ampost #1047 of 64835/6/12 at 11:30amI never really thought I'd do this, but...I totally just sniped a yohji suit off the 'bay. Now to hope it fits, length-wise (for summer, at least).
Something about the YY elegance is really attractive, lately. Ivwri, I also jocked your steeze and bought a pair of marsell slip-ons to wear with loose summer stuff. Hopefully they work out, too. You guys are killing me.post #1048 of 64835/6/12 at 1:27pmCame across a cute little nugget in David Foster Wallace's "The Suffering Channel" today:Quote:There was also something just perfect about the editorial intern's jacket's asymmetrical cut, both incongruous and yet somehow inevitable, which was why Yamamoto was generally felt to be worth every penny. At the same time, it was common knowledge that there was something in the process or chemicals used in commercial dry cleaning that was unfriendly to Yamamoto's particular fabrics, and that they never lay or hung or felt quite so perfect after they'd been dry cleaned a couple times; so there was always a kernel of tragedy to the pleasure of wearing Yamamoto, which may have been a deeper part of its value.post #1049 of 64835/6/12 at 1:53pmpost #1050 of 64835/6/12 at 2:04pm
