Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 12

Updated the OP with sizing information from myself and asobu and added one more online stockist (Lazzari). If anybody else has online stockists, let me know and I can add them to the OP.

Just saw this on eBay and someone should definitely go for it -

Pretty low starting bid on a Y's green wool jacket with removable vest in a size 3. Looks reversible too and the seller has a spotless record it seems.

I just watched the 2000 SS collection video on page one. So basic/minimal compared to his more current collections. The oversized silhouette is there, but a little less adventurous in detailing and concept.

I like this funny little exchange. Not treating the clothing too preciously. Just stuff a whole newspaper in your pocket! YY2000 (Click to show)

It's quite minimal in its detailing but the fabrics are pretty much out of this world from the little I've seen. I personally think it's a great take on shifting the boundaries between causal and formal wear. It's been dubbed "bad asia" by some, I don't know if that's the official name for it but it's supposedly inspired by the image of street fashion by younger japanese, which I think is why it was mainly modeled by teenage asians, something that wasn't and isn't very common. SS00 is one of the great spring shows in my opinion.


I thought about posting a few pics from the late 90's shows, but before I do that I thought it's worth to post the men's AW99 runway show which pretty much breaks any runway rules when it comes to models, setting, pacing and overall structure. My guess is this "gypsy" collection will not be as appreciated on the forum but it's one of those classic Yohji shows/collections that are still talked about today.

Thanks Ivwri for all the links in the OP. I´ve discovered a lot of new great sites to buy stuff. I specially like atelier NY. Really amazing things there. Fell in love with a shirt from Dior Homme.

 

If i could find something really cool from Yohji at a somewhat decent price, I´d cop without hesitation.

No problem. I quite like Atelier's buys as well and their SAs are pretty helpful via email. I think we are looking at the same DH shirt devil.gif. Plan on picking it up once things settle down over here.

There are quite a few things that are pretty good deals from Yohji that crop up every now and again. The key is to keep browsing auction sites and sales for them. Will keep posting good finds in here as well to help out.

Really liked that video asobu. The time just flew by! Yohji really seemed to have a lot of fun in that period of time, doing the menswear collection in FW1998 with women instead of men (really need pictures or a video of this colelction), the wedding collection strip tease for women and this one you just linked. I wonder whether he will go back to doing these or whether the new investors will keep them out due to the cost involved.

One thing I have always liked is Yohji's sense of humour and irreverence when it comes to the whole business of fashion. It comes through so well in his clothes and in his attitude as a person. Really looking forward to the AW2012 collection next week even more now.

EDIT - I should also add that that video just reinforced my decision to wear a longish coat over a skirt (with and without trousers underneath) even more. Great look like Parker said. Would like to see those long coat/robe/gown pieces that the guys wore under their coats in person. They looked really cool.

wrong weather has a sale going on right now, nice selection to boot.

I'm having trouble finding shoes to go with the silhouette of the pants, looking for something low profile and suede, don't care for sneakers. A point in the right direction would be very greatly appreciated.

Added Wrong Weather to the list of online stockists. Somehow it slipped my mind even after I bought something from them shog[1].gif

With regards to shoes, I also have some trouble finding nice shoes to go with my Yohji pants. I cheat when I can by buying Yohji shoes, but I also find that Augusta and Marsell have design aesthetics and toe shapes that go well with Yohji outfits and from what I've seen from fit pics, Carpe Diems as well. Since you are looking for shoes and not boots, you could check out these Marsell on Farfetch - http://www.farfetch.com/shopping/men/marsell/cat-shoes/items.aspx and see whether anything there is to your taste. They are sold on a fair few sites and can get pretty reasonable on discount.

These in particular are suede, but not sure whether you are looking for something in that colour.

Boots are a bit easier as you can just get boots similar to what Yohji wears himself - Dr. Martens, Red Wings and similar chunky boots go excellent with his pants.

Hope that helps.

Another someone should cop post - link

It's a size 2 Y's faded military-influenced jacket made from waxed linen/ramie fabric with a nice doublt placket detail with a belt that runs round the inside of the jacket. Some pics below, more on the listing of course.

Any experience with the hoodie on Wrong Weather? link

Size 2 and 4 measurements are almost identical. I'm 5-10 165, so I think I'm a 3 in most of his stuff? Which should I go for? I noticed someone said it's better to size up? Why is that? Seems like since the stuff fits loose already, that sizing down would be safer. I did pick up the wool coat and long sleeve printed tee in size 3.

If the measurements are correct, it shouldn't really matter what size you go for since they seem to be pretty much identical. It looks a bit weird to me that 2 and 4 would be so close, but who knows. Btw, for Y's the intended fit is more often than not noticably slimmer and while the sizing is quite consistent, I'm not sure if sizing up is best or not. What I meant was that YYPH is meant to fit BIG, that's how they're cut and intended to fit, but what can happen is that people notice that for instance chest or shoulder measurements look big so they size down to make it fit snugger which can result in the overall balance being "off" as well as length and sleeve length being shorter than intened -- it's all subjective of course, so it's up to you how you want to size it, but there is a point with the cut being big. I'd also like to add that stuff has been getting cut slimmer in a few of the later seasons, notably AW08 and AW09 as well as some cuts from SS11.

Also, does WW stock newer mainline Yohii? I haven't checked that site before but from what I can tell, all the YYPH stuff is from SS10. I guess that stuff has been on sale for a year and a half now? A lowpoint in his career perhaps but it deserves better than that!
