Saw this at Just One Eye and had the same reaction. Kinda funny but seems out of the blue.

@trouble I agree with Shah that hakama looks really good on you

Those prices @_@

Prices aside - that collection's looking better and better. My first impression when I saw the Femme show clips and shots was that it was Yohji performing at his very highest level. I don't think I was wrong.

YYPH Spring / Summer 2000 Hangul Print Coat

“전에 한 직원에게 ‘센스가 좋다는 것은 무엇을 의미하는 것인가’ 라는 질문을 받은 적이 있습니다. 나는 그때 ‘글쎄, 안다는 것이 아닐까’ 라고 대답했습니다. 사물을 안다는 것은 매우 고통스러운 일이죠. 지적으로 되면 될수록 타인 혹은 자기 내부의 자신과 충돌이 일어나기 때문입 니다.’멋’이란 이런 일종의 고통이랄까, 안다는 것에서 오는 당혹함에서 발생하는 미묘한 표현이라고 생각합니다. 제가 목표로 하는 옷이란 알기 시작한 사람들에게 무엇인가를 전하고 싶다는 마음에서 출발했기 때문에 모르는 사람, 고통이 없는 사람에게는 전혀 필요하지 않습니다.”

"An employee of mine once asked me ‘what it means to have good taste’. I replied, ‘perhaps, it is a knowing’. knowing something is a very painful thing. The more you intellectualize it, it causes conflict between you and others or you and your inner self. As such, I think having good ‘taste’ is a form of pain, a subtle expression that arises from the dilemma of ‘knowing’." I began making clothing with the desire to create something for those who 'know', so my creations are completely unnecessary for those who do not 'know', or are not in pain.

 

I roughly translated this from the Korean interview in which the quote was said, which was already a rough translation of his words. Might not make 100% sense but I think you can get the general idea of what he means.

I think you have to translate 사물 as physical things or belongings so the emphasis isn't on just knowledge in general but knowledge of physical things. He's saying knowing physical things (I'm thinking things like clothing and fabrics and construction) causes strife and his clothing is for people that think and know about these things so much that it's a kind of pain or suffering

Which seems like an apt description of styleforum.

Thanks for the share tho that was very cool

SS00 is my favorite season, hard to locate any pieces though. I have only two. Would like to add that third one, @Trouble are you hoping to acquire it?

Ah yeah my first thought was that he meant "objects" but I thought that it might have just been a poor translation by the publication that put out the interview, how you put it makes alot of sense too. Thanks!

Ah no, I just thought it was an interesting piece. I've seen this coat a few times recently, 3 on rakuten and 1 on Yahoo Japan, but I think some of those might have actually been the same piece being bought and resold by the actual second hand shops themselves.

You would look really good in it, I love how you wear Yohji's colours, I always stick to black and white but it's great to see it done other ways

Speaking of SS00, what a coincidence! I am actually at my friend's studio right now - he just got back from a trip to Japan and bought some Yohji pieces, and while trying them on I just found one from SS00! Pretty cool
