    As soft as it looks and very comfy :). It has a very nice pleating pattern at the lower back that looks great and can be seen in the runway video. It does have thin shoulder pads that I am debating removing, but other than that, very nice.

    Wanted to remind everyone that Yohji is showing his women's Autumn/Winter 2012-2013 collection in 3 days :slayer:.

    The nowfashion.com link is here

    Anyway, in the spirit of that I thought I would post a show, this time from Fall 2011. I know a few people had lukewarm feelings towards this show, but I like it. Quite a few riffs on some of his older designs (as is to be expected) with the "cage dress" being a good example, especially with the AW94/95 video that asobu posted a few pages back.

    hell yes, let's post some more winter collections in anticipation of friday night!

    AW04 was the last of the 3 collections he presented for couture week (the first two being SS03 and AW03), not during the regular fashion week. Just like for the men's show, this is one of my favorite AW collections from the 00's and there's definitely some crossover with the menswear - the "punk" theme, the massive bag-like pockets (cf. YYPH SS91), lots of black gabardine, massive coats, cropped pants and tall boots etc. Appropriately symbolized by: :slayer:

    Cross-post from WAYWT, fit is all SS2012 except the sandals. The pants are amazing, not sure what they will be like in the other fabric iterations, but the silk one is a winner in my book :slayer:. If I can get another pair in a different colour (most likely black), would not hesitate to pick it up.

    LN-CC has their Spring 2012 drop in. Quite a few pieces including a version of the Hakama Pants A that Atelier also got in, but with blue stripes on it (looks really cool I think). They also have the cardigan/jacket from look 7 in a patterned silk which really looks tempting (if not for the price :fu:)

    Anyway, the full first drop is here

    So the shirts are $600-800? Eek. How much is it to proxy them from Japan? $450-500?

    Seems like ln-cc's are about double the Japanese price if I recall, maybe a little less but almost there. I think the general prices were like, 30,000-39,00Y'ish for shirts and stuff, maybe 140,000Y for the silk jackets - ln-cc has those for about $3000 it looks like.

    Yeah most certainly almost double. Pretty crazy to pick up stuff that isn't exclusive to them (or any other non-Japanese retailer) or sold out in Japan to be honest. I do like the suspenders though and I didn't see those on the price list so will probably be getting one (been looking for suspenders in black for a while now).

    Drew, did you see my PM?

    I think this is the case for all countries outside Japan....Here in US is even worse, with Forward apparently changing ownership the only accessible stores still carry Yohji now are Atelier and Barneys.......But both of them have very limited selections, and usually by the time sale hits, the good size(size 3 that is) is already gone.....Also quiet disappointing that most stores only carry one style of the Hakama pants.....Maybe I have to consider proxy a pair but I'm afraid they are already sold out in Japan.....

    Saw the discussion about this knit earlier, and randomly bump into this on yahoo.....
    http://page6.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/f108095686
    Good price(for now), and my size, sigh....spending too much this month on clothing already...Might let fellow Yohji lovers give this knit a good home....

    Looks like I never had luck on Yohji knits..... saw the manga girl one from 07? long time ago(one of my grail items) but missed out on the auction(Still kicking myself for not bidding higher on the sweater)
    Missed out on this season's skeleton knits too during sale......Sigh, my hunt for Yohji knits still continues.....

    Looks good, Ivwri. Curious though - are the buttoned cuffs adjustable at all?

    Great pieces indeed, Ivwri. And thanks for keeping us up to date with the online store's new stock. As you said with these prices it's crazy to get stuff from western stores if you can just as well get your hands on it from Japan by the hands of a reliable proxy like drew, also negating any risk of getting hit with customs fees.

    I won't lie, sometimes the convenience of just being able to add something I want to a shopping basket, checkout and have it with me two days later sometimes outweighs the benefit of getting the item cheaper elsewhere or later on, but thankfully, there isn't anything they have that I haven't already planned to get via Kichi Store (Drew's proxy service) anyway making it easier to resist temptation. LN-CC has pretty great customer service though and with VAT removed and the occasional spot discounts the prices do become a lot more palatable.

    Some pretty nice knits posted a page back - especially that one with the tape measure on it :drool: - but I must resist.

    As part of the build up to tomorrow's women's show, I thought I would post up the Limi Feu Fall/Winter 2012-13 show. I really like this and it looks like Ms. Yamamoto has really come into her own as a designer.

    It's still very reminiscent of her father's designs and design philosophy, but to me she seems to somehow capture a youthful energy and a kind of punk attitude with her line that Yohji seems to not be able to. Probably as a result of her designing clothes that she herself would wear while Yohji designs by necessity as an outsider looking in.
