Copied this from Ivo Milan Blogs about Yohji Yamamoto Femme SS13 collection. To see pictures especially the fabrics, go to its blog site smile.gif

So Yohji-San is not interested in doing " themes " nowadays?

During an interview given shortly before the Spring/Summer 2013 fashion show, Yohji Yamamoto said that he was not in the least interested in producing recognizable clothing styles bearing his name every season, but rather that he wished to approach the creative process as a new challenge each and every time, as an opportunity to try new things and break free of repetitive ideas. The obvious risk of getting it wrong and not being understood by his audience, if seen for just what it is and why, would not be so important to him.

His statement seems to anticipate a spring and summer collection that steers away from the intensely poetic and familiar styles that Yohji has accustomed his fans to in order to make way for something fresh and unexpected.

When taken in the context of the current season’s fashions, the words of the great Japanese master seem to be more of a confession from an artist observing his own creative powers. Despite what he said his creations possess the easily-recognizable quality features that have always identified his work. Asymmetries, unfinished profiles, inventive volumes, cuts and stitching that are much closer to the meticulous slowness of high fashion than serial prêt-à-porter approximations, make up an ambitious and spectacular Spring/Summer collection.

The working of the fabric and the unique dyes make use of the most ancient and rare of  traditional Japanese methods that have remained unaltered in the few workshops able to pass on a cultural heritage that is in danger of being lost. Unheard of colours, such as indanthrene blue (made by hand then, dyed and faded using a slow bleeding process that imbues the colour with a unique metallic-lava effect), intersect lines with avant-garde designs.

The dragons on the printed silks pay explicit homage to China and offer a personal invitation to immediate economic and cultural reconciliation.

Even the Western expression “sexy“, mediated by a more sober and respectful intellectualism, joins in the design vocabulary of a modern Yohji Yamamoto, aware that cultures are getting closer, in a syncretism that is impossible to ignore. With the nimbleness of a Bolshoi dancer, the masterful artist moves deftly between tradition and modernity, East and West, displaying with all his expert skill, how a philosopher-craftsman designs clothes.

i would say that at least half of his collection are been without strong theme. especially in the 90s.

 

thats for aw13:

 

"I am a dressmaker; I am not a fashion designer. From 10 to 15 years ago the fashion market became shit." Yes, that was "shit." He made a point of clarifying that before continuing. "My role is to get the value of clothing back for everyone: cutting, draping, tailoring. There was no real theme to the collection, I just wanted to make dresses, to tailor and enjoy the value of clothing."

Love the drape of that coat, gorgeous.

Was also posted in Sales Alert, but La Garconne has a few Yohji items (tees, shoes, shirts, and I think a jacket or two) on sale at 50% off, plus an extra 20% until midnight with the code LGAPRIL20

I was reading about Daita Kimura of the Old Curiosity Shop in London (which is just stunning and a really unique retail experience - major recommendation for anyone who can get to central London) and I read today for the first time that he's worked with Yohji Yamamoto? Does anyone know what form this collaboration took, or maybe he was part of the design team? I'd love to see pictures. 

 

I know that he's worked with CdG in Japan. McQueen too.

 

For those unfamiliar:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some of his shoes are utterly bizarre (as seen above) - some very, very beautiful. Pictures really do no justice.

Great shot David! Looking good with the hat. Interestingly, I just picked up a nice fedora the other day (not Yohji, but still a fine hat), and, as someone said a while ago, adding a hat to a Yohji ensemble really lifts it to another level. I'll post a few picks soon, when some of my other recent acquisitions arrive (including a couple of interesting pieces from 2012 and 2013 respectively). And very glad to see you've got the full zipper suit now Kiko.
