Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 373

If you're talking about the epaulettes, they are fastened with a button and could easily get lost when they are removed during cleaning, for instance.

Oh right - I had no idea they were fully removable. Such a shame.

They can be lost, just not THAT easily.

Some really cool posts on here. Shame that LN-CC has dropped Yohji for this season due to their financial troubles. Looking at some good stuff from this season though, really liking those wrap trousers on those that have them biggrin.gif.

Nothing new here, but thought I would post (don't worry David, I still owe you a fit of "that" piece. Hopefully by the end of the week icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif)







Coat - YYPH. Not sure of season or fabric composition as the tag was removed, but it is a very light and wonderfully drapey cotton-like fabric. It is smooth and soft on the hand and extremely cool. Wonderful in Lagos humidity and still serves to keep me warm when under heavy air conditioning.

Tshirt - Levi's Red

Trousers - A/W 11 YYPH cotton trousers with a high waist. Posted about these before, easily top 3 of my favourite Yohji trousers. Weight, drape, construction and versatility are all great.

Sandals - Burberry Prorsum

Belt - S/S12 YYPH extra long leather belt (no-vis)

And yeah, need to see " that " piece happy.gif

Weather had been brilliant these past few days.

 

YYPH AW09 Fedora - wool

YYPH SS08 Look 15 Espoir Blazer - wool gabardine

YYPH SS08 Look 43 Suspender Pants - cotton 

Y-3 Hejarklack Hi-tops - leather

Uniqlo - cotton

Not sure if this has been posted before, but I found this interview with Yohji fascinating: http://the-talks.com/interviews/yohji-yamamoto/

You say you wanted to protect the female body and your clothes often have a playful androgyny in them. Should men and women be able to dress more like each other?

When I started making clothes for my line Y’s in 1977, all I wanted was for women to wear men’s clothes. I jumped on the idea of designing coats for women. It meant something to me – the idea of a coat guarding and hiding a woman’s body. For me, a woman who is absorbed in her work, who does not care about gaining one’s favor, strong yet subtle at the same time, is essentially more seductive. The more she hides and abandons her femininity, the more it emerges from the very heart of her existence. A pair of brilliantly cut cotton trousers can be more beautiful than a gorgeous silk gown.

I think it was posted a while back, but no harm in refreshing the memory of the thread smile.gif. It is very interesting to see Yohji's movement from these sorts of clothing and his view of women to the experiments he is carrying out now pushing himself to do different things and how this still holds up to a lot of his current output. I have always liked this view of femininity (and by extension, masculinity), as something intrinsic - as far as gender can be said to be intrinsic and not defined by society/self/etc - it is a very romantic one.

Looking forward to seeing you in this. I had been eyeing the blue one on DCDC via Y! for a while now, but always ended up passing on it since it was a size 3.

If it turns out I needed a 5 I'll let you know! I'm hoping they will be loose cut enough - the price was good enough to take the risk.
