Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 321

both sound fantastic. is there any news of when they'll come over stateside? i'm guessing it's out in the uk already from the pound denomination.

Just curious where you see the statement pieces in aw12, apart from capes which cover the normal suits? Usually spring collection are full of statement pieces due to the extra color and moving fabrics which make them easy to be identify. I actually feel that the pre-bankrupt collections are been way stronger than now. Not many timeless pieces coming since then I think, which for me its key in Yohji's work. Maybe I just love mid/late 90's Yohji too much and think thats his best period. 

 

 

I had the coats like this in my head when I wrote that:

 

 

Undeniably cool, but I wasn't exactly surprised to see it left on the shelf come the end of the season.

Definitely agree on the pre-bankruptcy mens collections being much stronger, perhaps SS11 had flashes of brilliance, boosted no doubt by the V&A YY Exhibition and the Real Couple Catwalk around that time. My personal favourites are the 00s stuff.

In fact based on my own personal experience and handling of the stuff in retailers and flagship stores I suspect there have been Y's stuff ( the cut and the use of certain buttons, or even prices dare I suggest ) marketed or disguised under the YYPH umbrella from SS10.

I don't know about ss11, its too custumey to me. It's about decoration rather than cuts with few exceptions.

 

Its funny about y's because the stuff I've handle from early 00' and 90's are same or even better than todays yyph.. 

post #4805 of 5710

I respectfully disagree. For me, 90s were amazing (I really can't see anyone denying), 00s really represented a dry patch and then from 2009 I don't know what quite happened - a personel change at HQ perhaps - but I've loved it all. 

 

I'd defend SS11 to the grave. Beautifully demented. A lot of the more outrageous - costumey yeah - pieces I thought could be taken apart and worn quite easily. I loved the double collared shirts - mostly hidden behind the huge ribbons on the runway. As a collection really like nothing I've seen before or since.

Its very literal ss11, there its not so much Yohji twist to the cuts and detailing. Few double lapels and double shirt collars.. The rest its replica of the garments he its been inspired by, just his fabrics. Its exactly what other fashion house are doing.. Easy to understand story. Funny enough I've got two looks from this collection.

But but but but but

 

 

 

 

 

 

Perhaps its because I really love the 18th century France vibe, down as much to the presentation as the clothing - but its a collection that really connects somehow. 

 

On a related note, here I am on a tram in Bremen, back in 2011, wearing my first ever yohji purchase - the above lilac shirt -, albiet as part of the least yohji ensamble imaginable (and probably the least yohji-ish fit pic committed to this thread thus far). (weird angle, not what my face looks like)

love that stuff, though like you am quite drawn to antiquarian aesthetics, and recently less peasant-like so such eccentricities are even more agreeable :-)

Regarding the SS11 Floral Pieces on the Runway, I was informed ( I hope reliably ) by the Conduit Street Japanese SA at the time that because V & A was exhibiting YY in its venue ( we had the pleasure of attending twice ), Yohji-san was returning the favour by agreeing to use a selection of tapestry fabrics from the V & A Textile Section to make bespoke pieces for his show ( and subsequently onto the racks ). That's why those Floral Pieces looked a bit disjointed and rather out of place with the rest of the Runway. Still stellar pieces of course.

size3 but ss11 is quite slim, perhaps a skinny 3 or a 2 would work best!

post #4811 of 5710

can anyone comment on the sizing for the ss13 derbies ? haven't had a chance to visit any stockists so am not sure. size2 outsole described as 29cm which i imagine would be best for a tts 9 ?

I'm a US 9 in most shoes and I need 3 or 4 in yohji shoes. I highly doubt size 2 would fit us 9.

I tried these on in HK 2 months ago in sz 2, I am UK size 7 and usually a Yohji sz 2 in footwear and found them quite generous and needing insoles. Beware they have creepers type thick soles so not very flexible. Hope this helps :)
