Outfit from yesterday, put a smile on my face :)
YYPH AW07 " The Skull Man " Knit ( HX-J50-955 ) 100% laine wool, not super luxurious fabric, thin, light weight. Great for cool summer/mild fall on its own and perfect for layering in winter. Non-runway piece ( should be! perhaps because the magic is at the back ) Size 3 regular fit crew neck, bi-colour at the front ( black and black/white diagonal weave ). Delightful snowflake pattern at front and on left sleeve, fair isle on right. The whole back features a fairly accurate reproduction of Shotaro Ishinomori's manga character. Treat this as a piece of art on fashion, not super high quality material but with super standard of construction.
YYPH SS11 Look 16 Elastic Hem Pants in black ( HO-P02-016 ) Size 2, 100% cotton. Posted already with the Vampire Coat, worn here untucked.
Y-3 Exclusive AW10 Neo Classic Hi-top Sneakers - UK sz 7, black canvas construction with 9 eyelet lace closure. Yohji's usual, preculiar text messages on heels and ankles ( some of Exclusive AW10 pieces were feline themed ). Particularly like the boat shaped outsoles adding dynamism.
Without giving my age away, I grew up as a boy watching and reading Japanese manga and anime TV ( dubbed in Cantonese ) in HK in the 70s so it pleased me no end when Yohji released his knits paying homage to Shitaro-san. They bring back good childhood memories. Whilst I am a fan of Ultraman, the yellow and blue pieces from AW04 do not appeal much ( nothing special in construction ). These AW07 ones however are a different story. I would dearly love to get the Look 24 Masked Rider knit, never seen it on Y! so the wait may be eternal.
Yohji is really really strong in his PH knitwear, we should have at least one!
