Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 363

post #5431 of 5740

Hey everyone,

 

How do we determine what season a certain item is from? I've a YY green sweater but can't figure it out. Thanks!

fuck off. why all you fuckers coming and asking to ID seasons? what difference make? just wear the fucking jumper if you like it. so tired of hype riding IDIOTS. 

 

and if you think this sounds rude, maybe you should try and read the bloody thread first? everything is explained. everything. HOW TO BUY CHEAP, HOW TO KNOW WHAT SEASON IS IT, AND HOW TO FUCKING WEAR IT. and you all STILL don't get it. (well you get the buying part very well).

Some of the looks in motion + Yohji explaining the collection:

More of the looks in motion:

 

 

 
"This started from an imagination - after I die. So, I was working as a skull. Recently, I started feeling that life is long, but same time very short."
 
(Posted on the Yohjifreak Facebook Page by Tadashi Kubo) 人は必ず死ぬわけです、しかし私たちはおそらく骨になっても仕事を続けなければならない。/ (Roughly Translated) Death is inevitable, but we must continue to work even if we become skeleton.

 

The "Yohji" Skull:

 

 

Coffin Zips:

 

 

The Skulls and "Beast" (Wolf, Tiger, Bulldog, Snake) prints were designed by Tadashi Kubo, Yohji's longtime assistant / right hand man for YYPH. I wonder what other pieces from previous collections may have been designed by him. Did a bit of Googling:

 

Photo of him with Yohji, from Valter's tumblr:

 

 

Describe yourself.

 

I am the assistant.

 

Describe your outfit.


I’m dressed like a wanderer.

What are you hoping to achieve in the next 25 years?


Positivity.

Why do you like Yohji Yamamoto?


It was my fate to work with him.

 

The crazy "cartoon" pieces towards the end were done in collaboration with artist Yasuto Sasada.

 

Sasada takes ancient beliefs and mythology that have created a solid base for cultural development and retell its glory into a more contemporary and youthful language. Being  ancient yet  modern perfectly describes Sasada's motivation. Having been brought up in a technologically advanced environment at the same time with great reverence of what has come before him, he draws on the latest innovations of industry and recreates classic imagery to reflect this second love. (...) His latest work imagines the species from far in the past to present to its distant future. In a simplified manner, Sasada breaches the concept of timelessness through its own organic process.

 

Which I think reflects on some of the artwork in this collection:

 

"Ancient" / Past:

 

 

"Technological" / Modern / Distant Future:

 

 

While I would not wear any of these pieces, I think the artwork goes very well with the message / intent of the collection. Life is short, why not try something new? A reminder of what was, is, and is to be. 

 

I've gone back and thoroughly looked at the collection a few times since yesterday, and I have to say it is growing on me. Lots of details and under layer pieces I did not notice before that I like and would definitely be excellent in black as well.

I was guilty of this early on. But if you like yohji then you will enjoying reading this forum and enjoy getting those answers from reading this forum smile.gif

and if you require self interest then reading this forum will let you develop what it is about his collections that appeal to you and how you would like to wear his clothing and gain an appreciation for his craft so that its not just wearing it or owning it that appeals to you

I'm finding the close up shots posted here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/YOHJI-FREAK-COM/308773472595901 - to be legitimately astonishing. Colour me excited.

Annndddddd the biggest douche award goes to ... you!

 

Jeez man, calm the f* down and get laid once in awhile.  Who gives a sh*t whether or not I'm asking for identification or not. Just.  Dont.  Comment. Or. Ignore. Me.

He might have been rude to you but he's none of the things you claim. In fact, he's one of the most knowledgable people on Yohji here, and dresses better in Yohji than almost anyone. And what he was saying is right. If you had actually bothered to read the thread, you'd find all sorts of useful information (in fact, everything about how to answer your question). If you had given some indication that you had done this and were still having problems, I am sure people would be happy to help.

@FlyingMonkey I almost agree on everything you said. You seem to be a gentle soul. At the same time no comment/ignoring is sometimes the best policy in an online forum.

Also it's not what one said, it's how it's said.

Back to AW14, looking at the close up of those prints, very high prices ( whether it's retail or 2nd hand on Y!/eBay in future ) are almost a given. I also wonder what it's gonna be like for Y-3 Runway in Paris ( today )? The Master is on fire smile.gif

At first glance the Y-3 show seems incredibly restrained - sharp contrast to the bright floral prints and neon stylings of the last three-or-so seasons.The mainline show had led me to expect something more outrageous, but he's nothing if not surprising. First impressions is that it's quite a strong, well-balanced collection - the calm after the storm maybe.

 

I'm liking the capes a lot. 

 

 

 

 

 

check out vogue's coverage here: http://www.vogue.co.uk/fashion/autumn-winter-2014/mens/y-3 - it looks like Yohji's enjoying his leather pants!

post #5440 of 5740
capes are way nicer than the ones he did recently for pour homme, those were impossible to wear without looking like Van Helsing.
post #5441 of 5740
I think he wore leather pants at the end of PH show. .

The Y-3 show was nice. The mens footwear good too in that some plain black sneakers/boots that can be incorporated in the mainline pieces, at least for me. Y-3 in the past 4/5 seasons produced some very cool womens black military boots ( no mens versions ) that eluded me due to size availability in the sale frown.gif

@wire lol to the Van Helsing reference of the AW12 capes. Yohji-San probably paid tribute too to LOTR that season with those Gandalfish hats haha.

The thread is 363 pages long. 

 

But it still delivers the lulz.

I was actually thinking that quite a lot of it looks like it could fit into a wider YYPH wardrobe quite well. Honestly this is one of the first Y-3 shows that I've looked at and could imagine actually wanting to wear it. In the past I've gravitated towards the more obvious statement pieces (like S/S13's floral jackets and coats) and been less interested in the collection as a whole.

post #5444 of 5740
I know this is not the orthodox but there are more Y-3 pieces I would actually end up wearing any given day than there are YYPH. Obviously YYPH is unparalleled but I think I am going to slowly build up some y-3 in my life. Mostly because many of the thermal type things I can hide under scrubs smile.gif
post #5445 of 5740
im also a fan of y3 bene, no shame in that! its good stuff.
i definitely need to pick up the qasa this time around icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
