    my first 'encounter' with yohji yamamoto was not his clothes but his signature in my pre-fashion-conscious pre-teen years...

    did/does he actually individually 'sign' each of his store signages upon opening (and then had the signages etched according to his signature)? kinda kool if he did/does...

    "300 years ago, black was the color of the farmer and the lower-class samurai. It wasn’t exactly black but an indigo blue dyed so many times it’s close to black. The Samurai spirit is black. The Samurai must be able to throw his body into nothingness, the color and image of which is black. But the farmers liked black or dark, dark indigo, because the indigo plant was easy to grow, and the dye was good for the body and kept insects away."

    Your ebay auctions kill me kiko. I keep thinking you can't possibly have more awesome Yohji/Cdg/Issey and it yet you seem to keep pulling pieces out of the vault :) Even the women's pieces are fantastic!

    I wish I wasn't so broke at the moment.

    Cheers mate. Its weird one, all of those pieces are the one that I almost never wore. After taking them out and tryiing them I really like them again. However I've got too much stuff and need to let 50% of them go. Will be listing the suit tonight and more stuff from my parants house.. Saying that I keep buying stuff .. Fucking Yohji-san.

    David thanks for the link!
    I also don't have the YYPH AW03 photos. I believe only the video has been posted here?
    If someone has those please post.
