Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 336

Some amazing Yohji at re-porter, new stock. Would buy colorblock suit, but too poor...
post #5027 of 5741

I'm really desperate to track down the SS2009 Dr. Y.Y. suit in a size 4. I've been looking for about a year now, but I haven't seen it anywhere. Is there anywhere else, other than the second-hand market, and shops like LNCC or re-porter, where I might be able to track one down (assuming they weren't all sold-out). Is there some other shop or reseller where Yohji and co. would send unsold pieces from past collections (assuming that the size 4's of that suit weren't all sold out at the time)? I'll keep looking on Yahoo japan etc., but I'm not really that familiar with the market for high fashion, so I thought that maybe there are some places I simply haven't thought of.

Have you tried placing a 'Wanted to Buy' ad on the various sites/forums?

Suyi is right to say place an ad in WTB section in SZ etc. Gilt Sale may have had that but surely if so all had been snapped up. It's more realistic for you to hunt down separates rather than a whole suit. The DR YY blazer has a dry hand fabric code of 105, 68/32 wool/cotton so you can identify the pants if you see them. If you can get the blazer first it's always cheat-able pairing with other black pants, like me. You will need sz 4 for the jacket but based on my experience with SS09 PH pants I doubt you will need more than a sz 3, they are all so hugely waisted.

Asobu and Wire.Artist are the only YY masters I know that possess the whole suit.

That's good advice. Thanks. Oddly enough, there is now a Dr. Y. Y. blazer on re-porter (but very expensive, and in size 1). 

 

On a vaguely related note, does anyone know what Yohji and co. do with items from past collections that remain unsold, and are not sent to other sellers (if this ever happens)? It's horrible to think of Yohji pieces being trashed, so I assume they remain in the archives?

unfortunately this is again a size 3

but it gives one hope that they exist out in the wild, if not for just inflated prices ...

what have you done with yours, Arche ?
post #5032 of 5741

I was about to mention that Yoox had some serious price drops on some cool Yohji pieces, esp. some SS12 things. But I just checked again tonight and seems like everything has been sold. Maybe some folks here picked up some nice things.

I'm still going to sell it, unfortunately. I'll put it back up on Ebay soon. So disappointed when I got the size 3 and it didn't fit. I'll just have to wait and hope for a size 4 further down the track.

YOHJI'S TOKYO HOME



post #5036 of 5741
Went to the London yohji store two days ago, really simple but calming store. It used to be an old rolls Royce dealership apparently.
Some new stock was there. I liked the pants with an elastic at the waist and cinched cuffs. Not sure of the model but it came in a cotton and a wool.

Peir wu bought this pair of high waisted trousers that looked like a skirt. Really nice.

Anyone knows if the YYPH SS13 lookbook photos with the codes were available, like last AW? I didn't find them on the official site.

The Lookbook for SS13 with codes is still available to be viewed. Go to AW13 Lookbook and look at the bottom of the screen for archive, you will see it then smile.gif

Can anyone tell me how the military inspired jacket with the red "for sale" on the back fits compared to yohji's other jackets? I'm about 5'7'' 140lb and 37 chest.

The SS13 " For Sale " jacket with metal grenade hooks is not tailored like most YYPH blazers. It's a TTS fit with a small armhole syndrome. You and I are almost the same build. I've only ever handled size 1 and 3 of this piece. Size 3 fits me but with a ever so slightly oversized feel. Size 1...... you should forget it.
