Have been seeing some tags or news of what looks like a new line called "GOTHIC Yohji Yamamoto", there has been a section reserved on the official website with a "Coming Soon" notice for quite a while now and it appears that we will (hopefully) be seeing these in just a few hours.

Not sure how I feel about this, I love it when Yohji does "In your face" type of things (Hakamas, Graphics, Prints, etc.) but I don't really associate his work to "Gothic" subculture (Other than his use of black) or something really dark which is what this somewhat reminds me of. There has always been a witty twist or a subtle wink - this looks a bit too "serious" for me.
But what am I saying, these are only small details so I shouldn't be too quick to assume. I guess I'm just really curious and excited for it.

Regarding the Gothic line (sub-line?) - when I was last in Conduit St, early December, items with the Gothic tag were mixed in with the mainline on the racks. Only noticed one or two long sleeved tees and basically glanced over them - but the initial impression was not good. They didn't look like the snapshots in the pictures above though, and all caps GOTHIC branding was a heavy feature.
I can only imagine that they're going for something deliberately tacky - a mix of high- and low-end, which on first impressions looks like a misfire.
Maybe the first delivery isn't indicative of what's to come - and perhaps AW14 will shed further light on the intended direction.
