I just got an old YYPH jacket, with an "HD" code on the label.
Does anyone know what year/season this is from? Hoping it's not a fake!
Thanks, dude. The parka is from one of the auction sites. There are always a few cream/off-white things every season, but they probably don't sell as well as the black/darker stuff.
I mostly like it for warm weather, but "winter white" can be nice too.
I haven't posted here for quite a while, though I still lurk in the billowy black shadows:). This is just to let everyone know that I'm selling this wonderful hooded coat from AW 2004 on Grailed. It's not so clear in this photo, but it has many great details, including leather inserts at the cuffs, around the outside pockets and the hood, and a long leather stripe all the way down the back and the hood. It's warm, but the wool is not as heavy-weight as I expected so it could be worn outside of winter.
I spent a long time trying to find this one in my usual size 4, and finally found it. Unfortunately, when it arrived I found (as David said in one of his earlier posts) that the coat is "wearing me" rather than the other way around (i.e. it is too big in a way that just doesn't work). So, with great regret, I am letting it go. I got it at a reasonable price, and I need to buy a winter coat to replace it quickly, so I am letting it go cheap. Just for comparison, exactly the same coat is selling on Rakuten at the moment for over 100,000 yen, and it seems to be in worse condition than mine (since mine has no scuffing or other damage on the leather.)
Since the money from selling this will quickly be reinvested in getting a better-fitting YYPH coat, I would also consider straight swaps for another YYPH winter coat (in size 4 or 3 depending on measurements) of comparable value. I'm particularly interested in the following: the robe-like, huge-hooded coat from AW 2012 (or variations of it in other seasons); the boiled wool trench-coat from AW 2007 (the model is wearing a knit with a red manga character); the equally robe-like hooded coat from AW 2009 (the one worn by the model carrying a baguette); or any similar coat from an AW season, preferably with a hood.
Does anyone know anything about the Workshop line? If I recall correctly, it was Yohji's very first line, even before Y's - although I cannot find any information to support this. But for some reason I have a memory of reading this somewhere.
I've seen 2 different types of tags, 1 being "W O R K S H O P" in plain text and the other being this one :
+ From a while ago :
I've become interested in many other designers in the last few years since I've discovered Yohji and this thread, but interestingly enough I always come back to his stuff. I'll mix and match with other things but elements of his clothes are always a constant in my dress & work.
Quite excited for the upcoming collection, the last few have been decent but I want to be surprised like we were in FW14, 2 full years ago... good times :)
