Clothes that don't hew closely to the body evoke a feeling of "peace" or "awareness" of some kind for me. Maybe it is the association I make between that style of clothing and nomadic people in harsh environments who tend to have a less self-centered view of the universe and are more accepting of things. I think Yohji has managed to transfer that feeling into his designs, even slimmer and more fitted cuts. That irreverence he brings in detailing and of course how the clothes sit on the body.
I remember how I ended up with my first Yohji clothing item. I was looking for Ann Demeulemeester shirts and wanted to purchase a pair of Yohji pants because I was looking for loose-fitting trousers at the time. I ended up in a store that stocked Yohji after loads of searching and while they didn't have pants in my size, they did have a jacket and a shirt. At the risk of sounding hyperbolic (or even worse like a plagiarist ), the jacket felt like something I already owned, or rather, that the jacket was something that "belonged" to an ideal me. Was pretty bizarre having an item of clothing make me feel that way, but it made me a fan right away.
Anyway, thought I would add some more images
