Does anyone recall in which season Yohji did some blazers with embroidered wings on them (not the birds of AW2011, but just wings)?

AW 2002

 

They usually fetch big money on Y!.

Thanks David. I had a look at those 2002 photos from Asobu, and I still can't work out if this is a 2002 jacket. It looks different from the 2002 ones. Maybe it's some non-runway variant?

OH sorry I thought you meant those iconic " wing " blazers from AW02. This is from SS08 Look 28, you can get matching pants as well:)

kiko that navy jacket you selling oof ......


ss13 pants arrived, FromJapan is absurdly fast and dangerously convenient. this cannot end well. the fit is much better than I'd imagined, length is perfect, weight is almost non-existent, volume is of course huge, can be worn a few ways due to cuffed bottoms, and they flow very nicely but still secured down at the cuffs (so imagine opposite or inverted movement of hakamas, if you will). embroidery is beautiful as well.
and while it all looks awesome in my head, i will most likely be seen by others as the following, though i could not care less since i'll be so comfy in them :-)

Some new pieces arrived today, with which I'm very pleased. I'll post some fit pics soon. Firstly, the "distressed" looking knit from AW 2012. Size 2, but very roomy even though I usually take a size 4 in most things (did this even came in multiple sizes?). Very light grey colour, looks almost like an un-dyed, natural wool colour. Incredibly soft mix of 63% alpaca / 37% silk is very light and warm at the same time. I would instinctively prefer black, but it's probably good to shine a bit of light into my increasingly black wardrobe.

 

Second is this long-sleeved top from SS 2013. Size 3, but fits very well. 100% cotton, with a lovely embroidered looking pattern. Actually, I'm wondering if this fabric is identical, or only similar, to the one used on those trousers Shah just picked up? Anyway, I need some non-shirt pieces for layering, and this adds a nice bit of texture, while staying within a simple black, grey, white colour scheme that appeals to me.

Finally, a nice YYPH cotton shirt with some white embroidery. Size 3. According to the tag it's either AW 2000 or SS 2007.

The long-sleeved top from SS 2013 is beautiful.  Where'd you find it? (if you don't mind me asking...)

post #4720 of 5741
the embroidered ss13 looks indeed to be the very same pattern. is it very light-weight as well ? seems like a perfect summer piece !
post #4721 of 5741

Yes, very light weight and a little stretchy. I didn't see it in any runway photos, so it must have been a non-runway variant.

Non Runway, you two can get a matching blazer as well ( sz 3 OS )

yup, non-runway indeed. the jacket is also available, though am not sure it's a suit or a a set and all three together would be a bit...too much redface.gif
i don't think i could even wear the pants with a jacket, though you never know till you try

I don't think a set up like this is as outrageous as those SS11 Floral/Tapestry Suits. I would track down the matching piece if I were you guys, it gives you options if needed :)

hah i don't think i could pull off the floral suit in its entirety either ! maybe just one piece at a time ...
