I should be winding down work on a new project if everything goes according to plan so it would not be a bad break. Hopefully the sun will be out as well. Any more takers?
Oh? Do tell!

Well, usually it's just a fun time to people-watch. There's a lot of "I saw so-and-so and s/he looked TERRIBLE", or 'guess who I just saw on the metro!", or "Gareth just invited me to his after-party, want to come hang out?" (I missed out, btw). Lots of models everywhere, lots of people rocking cool shit. Usually you can tell the models because they're freezing, are dressed horribly, and their hair is falling out frown.gif

Ivwri, I will try to sort you out ticket if you will be in Paris. I'm not sure for this season as I will be in Milan doing Missoni show, but will go next February for Yohji.

Good stuff. Hmm, well I better get my act in order and figure out whether I am going to be able to make it and when.

Vertice London will stock Yohji for the AW season! Here is a sneak preview of some pieces. Hopefully they will sell these online too.

Every piece looks so beautiful it hurts.

Thanks for posting this. Those showroom pics definitely make me even more excited about this collection. Will be following up this post with the pieces I am most interested in from the collection. Anyone else interested in posting theirs? An AW12-13 wish list so to speak.

Ah, well hopefully should be excellent. Think this might be the easiest time for me to get over there on a whim. Once kids get into the equation, all this stuff has to hit the back burner somewhat satisfied.gif

That would be great! I will message you once I am sure. Shame you may not be able to make it this time around.

I actually do have a friend that works with leather so I will see what she can wrangle for me.

100% right about Marsell consistency. I have awesome boots from them... very, very good quality everything. But I have seen total crap from them as well, in terms of style and construction. confused.gif

Congrats on the (upcoming?) birth!

Marsell seems to need some serious quality and creative control for sure. Definitely a try before you buy brand if there ever was one.

And, the baby is upcoming so thanks smile.gif. First trimester coming to an end pretty soon, hopefully everything goes well for the remaining period.

So, my AW12-13 wish list:

A lot longer than I thought it was... (Click to show)
480

The whole suit. I love the button details and the width of the trousers. The fact that the suit opens up on the sides (not sure if that is adjustable, but would be a plus) as well just adds enough of a detail that definitely pushed me over the edge for sure. The boots look interesting as well. This suit and the cape are my "Must buy" items.


480

The pants. Been on the lookout for some navy pants and these look very cool in motion, my only reservation is how warm the fabric might be. ***


480

The jacket. I like the simplicity of this iteration best. Tempted by the pants as well.


480

I would be very surprised if these capes don't sell out immediately (in Japan at least). Definitely want one even if it may not get as much use as I would like. Love the cuff detail on the sleeves and the pouch pocket.


480

Guilty pleasure purchase. I dunno why, but the embroidered patches look great to me smile.gif.


480

I want at least one pair of red pants from this collection and this one might well be it. The pair in look 10 look pretty nice as well in motion, but not sure about the detail on the leg.


480

Pants. Like the double hem detail.


480

Hat, jacket, pants and boots. These pants also seem to have a double hem detail from the brief glimpse I caught in the video. Not sure though.


480

Love this suit. Would like to get it in another color though. Either navy or grey.

this has probably been asked before, but who does Yohji use as models? lots of them don't look like typical runway models.

I don't know if this applies to every one of his runway shows, but he has used his friends and sometimes his own staff on the runway before. I am also pretty sure he still has normal casting calls for his shows and probably just makes sure that they pull in more than the usual runway model. A lot of the people show up repeatedly so I am sure they probably have a pretty steady roster of people they can call on now.

there are set of models in most of the big agencies where they have "unusual" and older models. depends how the brand wants to present their collection. margiela uses them quite often. of course they are mixed with top models pack. speaking of personal experience it's quite amazing during castings how top models like... fernando(cabral), daiskuke(ueda) can lift the whole outfit with their personality and walk.

I'd never really considered this... I suppose it shares some steez-related roots with that mysterious quality that makes the difference between someone being able to pull-off an outfit, or not pull it off.

Good to see continuing activity in this thread, I seem to have some catching up to do. But before I do that, this is important.

For anyone who still hasn't seen the women's AW 95-96 runway show, it's finally found its way out of the vaults. And it's glorious in every way. I was blown away by the AW94 show and it's still one of the best women's shows I've seen, and this is pretty much on par with that one. This moves away from the kimono themed 94 shows and into massive, amazing coat and cape territory. Some astonishing silhouettes and cuts here, especially watch the backs. Of course we get plenty of that wonderful gabardine in motion. Breathtaking stuff.

So we finally get to see these coats in motion:

This was amazing to watch. The combination of the music and the clothing was breathtaking at times.
