Yohji, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Looser Fit (Yohji Yamamoto Thread) - Page 62

post #916 of 5740
Nearly the whole AW07 runway was shown with relatively slim fitting ( by YY standard ) cropped pants or pants rolled up, including the anime Look ones.

Due to all the initial talk about Y's and for a change of pace, I thought I would put up some info of Yohji's former employees and/or proteges. First up is Michiko Suzuki. She used to be the lead designer of Y's red label, which was for women. Her new line is called Nocturne #22 In C Sharp Minor, Op. Posth.

First, some photos from the Spring 2012 lookbook -

Yohji's influence can definitely be seen in her clothing with voluminous dresses and assymetry being the immediately noticeable things. Good stuff though I think and I like the name redface.gif.

X-post from WAYWT thread. Thought I would post here as well as I put up a video showing the wool gab hakamas in motion.

Any Prussian and Teutonic references are purely coincidental.
drmmr asked for a video WAYWT to see the hakamas in motion the last time I wore hakama pants so since I am wearing them today I thought I'd oblige smile.gif.
Not the same ones I wore as last time, but same idea biggrin.gif. Apologies for the messy tabletop. Details & static shots (Click to show)

Orphaned kameez (Pakistani tunic shirt. Still not sure what the fabric...feels very light and is translucent. I suspect it could be rayon or a rayon blend)
YYPH hakama pants (wool gabardine)
Burberry Prorsum gladiator sandals


Happy Easter (if you celebrate it and if you don't compliments of the season anyway biggrin.gif) to all you guys as well.

Not really sure what to make of this, but if it's legit someone gets a deal:

^^those sandals are perfect in that context
post #924 of 5740

The blazer above looks legit to me. As far as I know there is not any bootleg y's or yohji pour homme out there. Someone has probably bootlegged y-3 given its popularity and the materials they use, but that is a different beast altogether. That blazer looks to be from an older collection (from the costume d'homme line), with a boxy shape. I'm personally not fond of the double breasted cut there, but I suppose the price is right.

The hakamas look awesome, ivwri. Great pairing with the tunic and the gladiators. I would love to pull that look off.

Happy Easter. Hope you and your family are safe. Just read about the church bombing in the LA Times. Uggghhhh.
post #926 of 5740
If you try, you will, Parker. Very excited to see your future fits.

Synthese, that is indeed very legit. 90's costume d'homme. The cut and particular style of jacket is very reminiscent of YYPH 1990 through '92, where one third of the shows were fits with this kind of jacket.

Ivwri, love it like I said in the other thread. Sandals are a good match, but too easy and priest like? Would love to see them paired with footwear heavier and more grounded too. There are lots of variations to make these right, this is certainly one of them.
post #927 of 5740
Ivwri, that's a good fit. At the end of the day, fashion ( no matter how expensive or cheap ) is about comfort first, anything else is just secondary IMO. The only person you need to impress is yourself. nod[1].gif

Thanks and thanks! My family is okay. My dad is actually up north at the moment so he is close to the state that the bombing happened in. Pretty scary, but even more annoying is our inept government. So many people dying and they keep on burying their heads in the sand only popping up for air and to spew more meaningless drivel.

Thanks guys. Yeah the sandals definitely gave off a priestly vibe, but I was in the mood for that so was win-win smile.gif. Will definitely be trying these particular hakamas out with more substantial footwear for sure though.

Iwvri, I thought I had the same prorsum sandals as you, but mine don´t have those "high" straps. And those are also not the ones with the zipper down the middle, right? I thought burberry, in that SS 11 collection had only 2 different pairs, the ones I have

and the aforementioned with the zipper

But yours are neither, right?
