Yeah, the city looks way too busy for me as well. Would be great to visit though...hmmm...maybe I should book a trip for the end of the year. October/November is supposed to be a good time?

Yeah, October/November is one of the best times to visit.

Tokyo is one of my favorite places in the world, I wouldn't mind living there again.

Will the stuff in Japan go on sale at some point, or does most of it sell out or what?
post #305 of 5929
YY stuff goes on 40% sale at the very end of the season. Many key pieces sell out at the start of the season but usually there are some good things left to pick up on sale. The whole collection is released in 5 drops from January through May so many pieces are not available until later on anyway.

Okay, more videos!

This is for the Spring/Summer 2012 women's collection:



Truly excellent collection imo and one that resonates pretty well with the Spring collection for men without aping the same themes. Loads of folds, loads of fabric all done in light materials. It is also a departure from what he has been doing for the last couple of seasons for women.

His daughter Limi says that his women's line is designed based on who he is dating at the time smile.gif.

Anyway, loads of classic Yohji shapes get reiterated here and his use of colour is again masterful. I also really like his Fall 2004 collection, but haven't been able to find a video for it. Will put up images from that collection when I am feeling less lazy redface.gif

'Til then, I present snippets from "THE MEN"! nod[1].gif

^yes, the "4.1 THE MEN" show is really excellent and recommended viewing for everyone interested. Seeing the whole thing is essential. I would also say this collection is a very good starting point for anyone new to Yohji and YYPH who is curious to start wearing this stuff. This show was the first after the bankruptcy and restructuring affairs, this time he showed in Tokyo for the first time in 19 years (hence "4.1", a reference to his AW91 "6.1 the men" show when also he showed with Kawakubo in Tokyo), and for this return to his homeland he did a sort of greatest hits collection, some re-iterations on pieces he's done before, lots of great wool gabardine. The cuts were also slightly bigger than the previous and following collections in my opinion, and so many immensly wearable and excellent pieces. I could definitely make most of this into my daily wardrobe for a long time to come. The models were friends of Yohji, artists, directors, musicians, his YYPH team etc, so the vibe is very relaxed, familiar. I think the pace and the atmosphere of the show -- despite being shown in a large arena venue - makes this show paricularly good.

I work in an industry which pays me in Australian Dollars. So it's slightly better at JPY81 or thereabouts biggrin.gif

I don't know if this has been mentioned in this thread... But I find that the clothing actually looks better on fat people than skinny ones..

Hmm, while I do agree that it looks really good on large people, I am not sure I would go as far as to say it looks "better". I guess everything does depend on the individual item of clothing and the personality of the person wearing the clothing as well. I consider Yohji one of the best ambassadors of his own clothing and he looks great while being a pretty skinny and small guy.
