Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 346

Indeed. The robes I was referring to are featured in Look 18 in the AW13-14 lookbook:

 

 

nd there was really nice mulberry / purple suiting (look 21) too (love this):

 

 

and plenty of colour, pattern and texture, all round (look 35):

I really want a pair of white Warriors in 12.5 US. They're sold out on Gilt, which is a damn shame.

All of you guys, wonderfully as you do dress, seem to favour only the black, and particularly the gabardine, Yohji stuff. Yet there is a lot more to Yohji. Is there no love for the pink / purple fake fur robes and multicoloured scarves etc? Does this side of Yohji just not figure in what westerners expect or want from the label?
tbh I don't find any of those colourful outfits to be unwearable and on the contrary I wear similar outfits on a day to day basis minus the attached facial hair... smile.gif

Actually, I'm very interested in your take on the question of Yohji's use of colour, DbK, since you seem to be - and I may very well be entirely mistaken here because I haven't seen everything you wear - one of those in the black school of Yohji cognoscenti.

Here's lots of black with a burst of intense colour:devil:.Two new purchases: Firstly, the very flamboyant, bright red, silk/cotton shirt I mentioned above (not sure of the collection yet), size 3 but roomy, beautiful fabric, and impressive attention to detail, including a double collar, with a kind of cut out leaf-motif on the hidden, lower collar (hard to describe, but will take close-ups on another occasion.) Secondly, a SS 2006 reversible coat. I think this is almost the same as the one David posted a while back, except this one is 100% cotton, rather than as I think David's was a rayon blend (correct me if I'm wrong on that). Same construction, with 6 large zip pockets on one side, forming a sort of sewn on vest of pockets. As my partner said, this will the ultimate travelling coat, since you can fit so much into those pockets. It's also very light, which means that I should be able to wear it into summer. This explains why I'm looking for the matching trousers! I think this coat actually works better with black shirts, or white, but anyway. . .

 Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy - but mysterious. 

 But above all black says this: ' I don't bother you - don't bother me. '

                                                                                                                      Yohji Yamamoto

 

And to add, black is a colour. In my opinion as far as non-black colours go the Master does the best red in Yohji Yamamoto Femme. 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

 

 

YYPH AW09 Look 3 Fedora Hat - ( HZ-H05-127 ) - in black, 95/5 wool/nylon.

 

YYPH SS04 Look 24 String Lapel Blazer ( HZ-J25-100 ) - in black, 100% wool gabardine. Size 2, 4 horn button DB closure, peak lapels, buttonless sleeves, half-body & sleeves lined in cupro. 14 hole optional lace lapel closure. All strung up. 

 

YYPH SS12 Pleatless Hakama Pants ( HB-P73-100 ) - in black, 100% wool gabardine. Size 3 and feel pretty high waisted on me so perhaps Kiko is much taller than I am. 

 

Uniqo SS Tee, OTZ-Superslick in black leather.

 

@Arche the SS06 Look 25 Reversible Coat is 100% rayon, 200 fabric code.

sorry but i can't reveal my black theory =)

Thanks Kiko, this is exactly the shirt. The leaf pattern on the underneath collar is much like the one on the jacket. I remember seeing this whole suit for sale in a size 4 and loving the detailing, but the tan and brown colour scheme didn't really appeal to me. It looks great on the model though. 

 

David, just out of interest, do you know if the matching full length multi-pocket trousers from 2006 were available in cotton? I can't tell from looking at the runway shots whether the model is wearing my cotton version or your rayon version. 

post #5185 of 5821
@Arche it's less likely in fact the matching pants were available in 100% rayon if the texture of the rayon coat is anything to go by. Cotton is by far the more ubiquitous material used in making pants, Yohji or not.

Rex Woo is selling a pair of cotton ones right now, sadly not you size I guess....I'd say 40.5" length is classed as full length pants.....

post #5188 of 5821
was trying on some things at barneys , that purple robe is incredibly (and with an incredible retail price to go with it)
i have to say, that more subdued jungly print isn't as intense as i'd imagined, very much wearable for me.
the gray/black melange cardigan is also amazing, my friend has a similar one from last season, very loose weave in blue that may be even more oversized
the long shirt is a size 3, it's massive. i may even have been able to fit into the size 1 with plenty room to spare. the length makes it nearly impractical, longer than even the ss11 priest shirt.
sorry the photo quality sucks (Click to show)







(last one was a Dries from womens section, huge and fuzzy and warm redface.gif)

I am more impressed by your YYPH AW06 (?) pants btw, still thanks for sharing the info :)

 

My brief AW13 encounter a few weeks ago at Hervia.

 

Closer view (Click to show)

 

YYPH AW13 Look 35 Faux Fur Coat ( HQ-J19-903 ) - in grey ( true colour is the reflection off mirror ) - base 55/45 acrylic/polyester, pile 100% acrylic. Sz 3 kinda fits OK having to roll sleeves, would like to try sz 2 ( not available ) to compare. Double lined in grey cotton with 3B closure to notch lapels. Detachable collar with buttons and black leather insert. The silhouette is actually rather good and you feel cocooned in all this fluffiness. Not sure if it's too bling bling for this old fashioned fan but certainly a statement piece, with a OMG price to match ( £2900 ).

 

YYPH AW13 Look 4 Strap DB Coat ( HQ-J24-100 ) - in black 100 wool gabardine, the safe choice. Size 3 oversized fit ( only worn over a Tee ), again like to compare with a sz 2. 6B DB closure, peak lapels, 2 additional side straps with 10 buttons each ( enable the coat to be worn open ), the sleeves have 2 working buttons + another 6 buttons up the arm, So total at least 40 buttons on this piece, OTT construction, but nice. £2030

 

 

YYPH AW13 Shawl Collar Coat - in black, forgot the code, 90/10 wool/nylon, very warm but very big in size 3. 4B DB closure with optional high collar finish £2100

 

YYPH AW13 Look 36 Bow Print LS Shirt - ( HQ-B09-806 ) - in black 83/17 wool/nylon, very soft almost sheer fabric. Size 3 fits nicely, big buttoned down collar with dramatic bow ribbon print. Far superior than the ( cheaper ) white cotton iteration in my view. 

 

Also tried on the Look 3 ( Regulation ) blazer in beige cotton ( blend ), size 2 fits true to size, not keen on the silhouette, colour and fabric so sorry no picture.

 

All in all, AW13 looks like business as usual in terms of pricing, nothing ( in Hervia ) I would like to buy as target pieces.....

 

I did buy ( and got a cheeky discount ) Mrs Lee these as her early 10th Wedding Anniversary present ;)

 

Adidas Originals Y's Super Position - based on the Adidas Superstar. In black leather with contrast white, smooth leather toebox and tongue, black laces. The 3 stripes are interpreted in zig zig grey cotton threads which are meant to be cut clear of the ground by the wearer to create an individual distressed look. Flat, waxed grey spare laces are also supplied to further vary the look. Cool sneakers, seem to be aimed at men ( notice the male logo on shoebox, if it's unisex there should be both sexes shown ) but Y's is nowadays women's only? A puzzle.

The fake fur it looks excellent on you! The price does put a bit of a dampener on it though...
