Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 317

post #4741 of 5741

Setting aside for now the kopping/konsumerizm topic, the backpack discussion actually brought up an interesting point for me: finding the balance between creating a personal style vs. simply buying into a designer/brand vision. Even if one's wardrobe is focused on a single designer as many in this thread, I think we can still benefit from putting an individual spin on it. Whether it's peppering in other brands, or mixing in something used/vintage or like dantekiko does something hand-made.

^^ they are indeed, david. but i thought it looked nice with all the floral prints of the y's (and it was all in same instagram foto dump heh)

^ agreed, k. i hope i don't sound pedantic or something...i'm totally for individualizing a look even if from a single designer, and i think that's the great success of this adventure here. haven't really seen any two people that look the same despite almost everything coming from "one source." btw, have you checked your mail, recently ??

kiko not that it needs to be said but the fits are great in particular that silk robe, man i should never have slept on a similar piece .........

Yeah, this is something that I have personally been working on myself. There is an abstract concept of how I want to look and feel when I have clothing on and while Yohji is a great base for that, I don't think it will be possible to achieve it using just one brand alone. Unfortunately, not a lot of brands that I have access to and/or know about come even close to what I am looking for, lol. I am waiting on Aitor Throup's clothing to come out and see whether it will be a good addition to my wardrobe and help me accomplish this.

I agree completely with shah though that one of the great things about this thread is how different everybody looks even though we are all wearing the same designer. Shows the length and breadth of Yohji as an artist and the creativity of you guys on here putting together their outfits icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

On a side note (and related to kopping biggrin.gif), just managed to pick up one of my grail pieces from SS11 (look 31 embroidered jacket)thanks to a timely intervention by kiko biggrin.gif. Will post up pics once it arrives. that Yohji backpack Auburn posted is in my crosshairs this season as well.

So many great Yohji-related pics and videos on Tumblr right now. Here are a few pictures along with a link to a Yohji Yamamoto satellite webpage linked to an exhibition I believe of Yohji in Berlin from the 25th - 28th of April in collaboration with (or sponsored by?) Audi.

Has loads of exclusive content on there including photography by a photographer called Monica Carocci. Definitely worth checking out!

Does anyone know of any stockists carrying the string blazer + pants from SS2013 in gray? I thinks it's either Look 1 or Look 29.

It's a navy Y's suit with 62% wool 38% nylon fabric. Double reverse pleated trousers, half lined jacket with a lot of handstitching, no canvassing, lapped seams, fabric is kind of stiff but airy. Tags say MZ-J05-113, but the first post of this thread I think only specifies YYPH.

I really really like it. Shoulders, sleeve length, waist of pants, pant length all fit perfectly. It's a very odd feeling to have everything fit so technically perfectly, yet qualitatively look like it fits a few sizes too large. Love the drape and taper of the pants.

I'm looking to buy a YYPH suit next and will probably be trolling yahoo auction and rakuten.

Now I just need to find a job where I can wear yohji to work.

Thanks for the lowdown, sounds like a great suit. Y's pieces are welcome here as much as YYPH.
