As soft as it looks and very comfy smile.gif. It has a very nice pleating pattern at the lower back that looks great and can be seen in the runway video. It does have thin shoulder pads that I am debating removing, but other than that, very nice.

Wanted to remind everyone that Yohji is showing his women's Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 collection in 3 days icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif.

The nowfashion.com link is here

Anyway, in the spirit of that I thought I would post a show, this time from Fall 2011. I know a few people had lukewarm feelings towards this show, but I like it. Quite a few riffs on some of his older designs (as is to be expected) with the "cage dress" being a good example, especially with the AW94/95 video that asobu posted a few pages back.

hell yes, let's post some more winter collections in anticipation of friday night!

AW04 was the last of the 3 collections he presented for couture week (the first two being SS03 and AW03), not during the regular fashion week. Just like for the men's show, this is one of my favorite AW collections from the 00's and there's definitely some crossover with the menswear - the "punk" theme, the massive bag-like pockets (cf. YYPH SS91), lots of black gabardine, massive coats, cropped pants and tall boots etc. Appropriately symbolized by: icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Cross-post from WAYWT, fit is all SS2012 except the sandals. The pants are amazing, not sure what they will be like in the other fabric iterations, but the silk one is a winner in my book icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif. If I can get another pair in a different colour (most likely black), would not hesitate to pick it up.

LN-CC has their Spring 2012 drop in. Quite a few pieces including a version of the Hakama Pants A that Atelier also got in, but with blue stripes on it (looks really cool I think). They also have the cardigan/jacket from look 7 in a patterned silk which really looks tempting (if not for the price ffffuuuu.gif)

Anyway, the full first drop is here

So the shirts are $600-800? Eek. How much is it to proxy them from Japan? $450-500?
post #550 of 5801
Seems like ln-cc's are about double the Japanese price if I recall, maybe a little less but almost there. I think the general prices were like, 30,000-39,00Y'ish for shirts and stuff, maybe 140,000Y for the silk jackets - ln-cc has those for about $3000 it looks like.

Yeah most certainly almost double. Pretty crazy to pick up stuff that isn't exclusive to them (or any other non-Japanese retailer) or sold out in Japan to be honest. I do like the suspenders though and I didn't see those on the price list so will probably be getting one (been looking for suspenders in black for a while now).

Drew, did you see my PM?

insanely expensive, this is London (i live in here so i know that.....)icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Lncc usually makes summer sale in July, have a try theneek.gif

I think this is the case for all countries outside Japan....Here in US is even worse, with Forward apparently changing ownership the only accessible stores still carry Yohji now are Atelier and Barneys.......But both of them have very limited selections, and usually by the time sale hits, the good size(size 3 that is) is already gone.....Also quiet disappointing that most stores only carry one style of the Hakama pants.....Maybe I have to consider proxy a pair but I'm afraid they are already sold out in Japan.....

 

Saw the discussion about this knit earlier, and randomly bump into this on yahoo.....

http://page6.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/f108095686

Good price(for now), and my size, sigh....spending too much this month on clothing already...Might let fellow Yohji lovers give this knit a good home....

 

Looks like I never had luck on Yohji knits..... saw the manga girl one from 07? long time ago(one of my grail items) but missed out on the auction(Still kicking myself for not bidding higher on the sweater)

Missed out on this season's skeleton knits too during sale......Sigh, my hunt for Yohji knits still continues.....

Looks good, Ivwri. Curious though - are the buttoned cuffs adjustable at all?
