    thanks mr. snowman. mrs parker calls them my 'raver' pants. hard to tell from the photo, but the fabric is shimmery and they are huge on me.

    Parker, about 4 months ago the whole SS08 Look 23 ( blazer, pants and knit ) were on Y! from a single seller. Guess you have missed it.... it will appear again hopefully.

    Anyway we had been under the most dismal weather here the last few days so no recent fit to post, this a few weeks back, a celebration of what epitomizes Yohji clothing:- fabrics, construction, silhouette.

    back shot ( buttoned ) + fabric

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    YYPH AW09 Look 29 Side Tape Frock Coat - ( HJ-J28-402 ) - one of the best, if not the best, coat I have. Ex-Wire.Artist, very dark grey, 100% silk ( raw silk ), simply outrageously exquisite fabric choice for a AW coat, woven in texture with an indescribable sheen, you can see thru it when hold it against the light. Fully lined in cupro, size 3 has a structured yet roomy size 2 fit ( great ). 2B non-working sleeves. 3B closure dropping to a cutaway front, notch lapels, back vent. There are 3 additional slit studded pockets ( 2 left, 1 right ) to the usual chest + bottom pockets. Each has a long seam dangling extension that creates astonishing drama in motion that pictures cannot capture. Understated yet magnificent.

    YYPH AW09 Look 29 Deconstructed Shirt - ( HZ-T15-260 ) - black iteration of the white runway piece. 15/25/40/20 rayon/lyocell/nylon/angora blend, again an extraordinary fabric blend with an extraordinary retail, the softest knit like material. Size 2 huge fit with very long sleeves, chest patch pocket. Extraordinary construction as well, the normal shirt collar can be partly/completely detached via 4 buttons to become a henley look. The buttoned french cuffs are also detachable via 4 buttons revealing a knit cuff. Deconstruction - Yohji's speciality.

    original Y! picture - close up

    [​IMG]

    YYPH AW04 Look 43 Zipper Pants ( HJ-P12-100 ) - posted before, size 3, great 100% 100 wool gab, adjustable buttoned waist, adjustable foldable zipped hems. Superb fabric and construction.

    [FONT=verdana, tahoma, arial, sans-serif]YYPH AW11 Monkey Boots - ( HP-E05-754 ) Size 2, 15 eyelet lace closure, nubuck like leather, side zips.[/FONT]

    [FONT=verdana, tahoma, arial, sans-serif]SS Tee, CDG H+ Belt. [/FONT]

    Probably the knit part of the shirt-knit hybrid. On its own it can be used as a skirt, an apron or ingeniously a scarf using its many many buttons, right Kiko?

    almost right [​IMG]. it's not part of shirt, it's garment by itself with tag etc. i keep the stock photos actually.

    it's actually different from the hybrid pieces( I was wrong) , the knit is lighter and softer and sold by itself. I don't think it's in any of the looks kiko posted tho.

    I know it's been said repeatedly, but thanks so much to all who have contributed to this thread. In addition to being unwaveringly positive and welcoming, this has been the densest and most inspiring thread I've come across. I spent the last two days reading through the entire thread (dodging phone calls and emails from co-workers the whole time), and I gotta say I feel like I'm sitting down to write an exam I never studied for :embar: ... All these different seasons, fabrics, cuts, sizing and the prospect of proxying stuff from yahoo japan/rakuten is a bit much to get my head around.

    Testing the waters with some Coming Soon pants atm (thanks Parker), but when I'm a little more flush with cash I hope to buy a couple pairs of wool trousers, a few shirts, and a jacket or two.

    i saw this interview and thought about posting...thanks for putting this up dante....

    being chinese, yohji's comments have always been refreshing regarding the relationship (often strained) between the chinese and japanese. certainly given his age and as he put it, "a son of war", i appreciate that as usual, he's not afraid to go against the grain of what many of his peers often tip toe around or avoid discussing altogether.

    i'm not sure if this has been debated yet, but i wonder how often as consumers we consider the morals or values of those creating the product in which we consume.

    given his comments and the money he's put into helping chinese fashion students/programs, i feel like my money is being well spent...

    just my two cents

    Thanks for posting the interview dante.

    Will comment a bit more on MyMindSpray's point about feeling better giviñg a designer whose ideas and philosophy you agree with. I do feel very good about supporting Yohji by buying his stuff primarily because I agree with him on a lot of things.

    I am away from home (in my hometown actually) until tomorrow so for now I am stuck with extremely choppy Internet on my iPad, but from the thumbnails the Yohji Spring 2013 collection for women looks like another winner to me.

    Check it out here if you haven't seen it yet - http://www.fashionologie.com/Yohji-Yamamoto-Spring-2013-Runway-25208604

    One of our regulars on here was able to make it to the show! I will leave him to make a post about it and give us his impressions :D.
