    La Garçonne is another online retailer for YYPH. Their email newsletter today featured several AW12 items. I like the styling here. Mixing narrow pants with voluminous tops and fresh white CPs.

    I ordered the mantle from the look 1 over two weeks ago via sharpservice, but I haven't yet received it...

    I'll try to post some photos when I receive it.

    Y-3 SS12 Look 8 Exclusive Strap Blazer - it doesn't say Exclusive on the tag ( discontinued ) but from my 6 years of buying/studying Y-3 this piece is Exclusive in spirit and price point. Black twill cotton similar to one used for some SS11 YYPH pants, Size M ( S is snug ), dropped shoulder old school Yohji, 2B closure, additional 2 buttons allow a DB look. 2 small buttoned flapped pockets at the front + chest pocket + 2 bottom flapped ones. Half body lined in fabric, sleeves in cupro ( just like Y's/YYPH ). Long blazer. 2 dangling front straps and 2 removable ones at the back allow the blazer to be shortened by fastening to hidden buttons. The 2 front straps have extensions at the top to allow it to be worn open but secured at the same time ( AW11 YYPH inspired ) and interesting decorative plays on the look with the random front panel buttons. Nothing mainstream Y-3 about this piece.

    Y-3 SS12 Look 10 Multi-pocket Pants - same twill cotton, size S relaxed fit, twin snap button closure with toggle drawstring. 2 large front and back waist elasticated flapped pockets, long elasticated cuffs.

    SS Tee and Y-3 AW09 Hejarklack Leather Hi-tops.

    Haha thanks Valter, I was trying to fool others but the connIsseurs like yourself will always know. In fact the whole suit is SS12 ( the sneakers AW09 ). They are the defunct Exclusives now marketed under the whole Y-3 umbrella. The fabric ( cotton twill ), the construction ( same half body lined in fabric, sleeves in cupro, even the thick thread from middle of lining to panel ), the silhouette and styling all shout YY and less Y-3. The straps can be used to shorten the blazer ( similar in concept to a YYPH AW11 Runway piece ) by buttoning up a section. Also hints of YYPH SS13 with the straps going over the panels as an option.

    Price wise they are much dearer than the mainstream Y-3 but cheaper than the good old Exclusives ( those were made in Japan, usually devoid of any logo ). Anyway just try to illustrate Y-3, chosen carefully, can blend very well with YY IMO.

    PS. guess the fit should be removed from this thread cos it ain't Yohji :embar:

    Don't remove the picture David! lol. Y-3 is Yohji so should definitely stay here. I even put up the season show so no biggy. Actually we should probably put up the first Adidas Yohji season in build up for the women's collection coming up soon. Has that already been posted?

    Cool fit david and kiko. I definitely need more cropped Yohji pants in my life.

    La Garconne has excellent styling and those pictures breathe new life into the clothing for me. That smock-like shirt is something that I thought no amount of styling could make look anything but costumey but they came close I must say, :lol:.

    Recently received a great SS09 suit from asobu and I am in love. It is a similar cut to the first look on the runway of that season but all black. It is a 74% linen/26% cupro blend and has such a slouchy, slubby texture. It is great. Really like all the linen pieces I have from Yohji, but this really pushed me over the edge. It is very light and translucent in the right light, rumples very nicely and moves really well. Suits the weather here to a tee as well. Definitely going to pick up anything similar to this from the SS13 collection for sure. I have misplaced my SD card somehow so can't take any proper pics, but as soon as I locate it will do a fit pic.

    ss09 it's such a wonderful collection. at some point i will need to get suit, too. however i've been lucky over the auctions and manage to buy few good pieces. aw03 black gabardine suit with hand-stitching details, ss02 gabardine suit with reflective? detailing, ss96 gabardine pants with white stripe - always loved this look.

    SS10

    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    YYPH SS10 Studio Collection Look 3 Contrast Lapel Blazer ( HJ-J18-323 ) 50/50 linen/cotton blend, dry hand and very light, almost see through fabric. Very dark grey, size 2 perfect fit, structured ( still roomy ) and longish silhouette. 3B closure with notch lapels.half body lined in fabric, sleeves in cupro. Unusual pointed flapped bottom pockets, white/black striped cotton extensions from right lapel to side of front panel and on pen pocket. The pattern pokes out and hides itself in motion when partly buttoned, lovely touch. Long back pleat ( not vent ) adds volume and comfort ( arms crossed on back shot to show pleat )

    YYPH SS10 Studio Collection Look 3 Cuffed Pants ( HJ-P12-008 ) - black 100% dry hand thin cotton, size 2 huge waist, 2 back patch pockets, banded fabric cuffs ( non-elastic )

    YYPH SS Tee ( HA-T91-952 ) - size 2, dark navy, nice collar band, 100% medium weight cotton.

    CDG H+ belt, Dr. Martens 1460 Mono ( all black ) 8 eyelet boots.

    SS10 was immediately after the bankruptcy/take-over, a kind of " gap " season. No runway show, just 15 or so Studio Collection Looks. No show-stoppers for sure, however there were still some great silent but very wearable and unmistakably Yohji pieces. The bonus being the price points were between traditional YYPH and Y's making them relatively affordable.

    ^ I like the pocket flaps there, david. Sort of western-equestrian style.

    two pretty boring looks from me.

    [​IMG]

    today:
    yyph ss12 army cap - 100% ramie
    yyph ss12 cubist shirt - 100% cotton
    yyph ss12 drawstring pants - 100% cotton
    superga leather sneakers

    the pants are light as a feather. same material as the other cotton "810" from ss12. feels like I have nothing on. :embar: size 3 with ribbon waistband that can be tied or left hanging. the pattern is cut with multiple assymetrical panels. sort of like the cubist shirt. sorry, photo doesn't really show all the detail.

    [​IMG]

    monday:
    coming soon ss10 plaid jacket - 100% cotton
    yyph ss09 pants - 73% cotton / 26% ramie / 1% poly
    anvil cotton tee
    random yoox sneakers

    pants are size 2. super oversized waist with strong taper. fabric is very dry and crisp.

    unexpected box arrived today at the office. aw96 gabardine pants with big back pocket. really wide cut, the gabardine its 167 code (amazing!) also the "house" coat from aw99. it's so massive and warm. taking the homeless look to different dimension. i will have to think about how i can wear the coat, probably with less wide pants.

    Wow, that coat ...... [​IMG] Does it have a hood? ( the pic aint very clear on my work's monitor )

    Try tights/fleece pants and boots with it perhaps, I can't pull that off, but you can :)
