    ‎2013 SPRING/SUMMER
    1月18日(金) START

    THEME

    吹けば飛ぶような、風になびく服。

    空気をはらんで大きく膨らむシルエット。光が透けるほど薄い生地のギャザーパンツやドルマンスリーブのジャケットは、歩くたびに風を集めてなびく。
    風の吹くまま流浪するボヘミアンのように、社会の規範に縛られず自由な考え方で世界中を巡り歩くことができる軽やかな服。


    2013年1月18日 一足早い春の訪れです。
    ご来店を心よりお待ち致しております。
    2013 SPRING/SUMMER

    1/18 START

    THEME

    Fluttering in the wind blows like a flying clothes. Silhouette greatly swollen, fraught with air.
    Dolman and optical see-through thin fabric gathers pants jacket walks, fluttering in the wind.

    Light clothes without being bound to the norms of society Bohemian roamed the wind blowing, you can travel all over the world in a free way of thinking.
    1/18/2013 Is in early spring. We are looking forward welcome sincerely. (Translated by Bing)

    Outfit for today + my wife's birthday dinner later.

    [​IMG][​IMG]


    [​IMG]


    Y's Yohji Yamamoto AW05 Pitti Uomo String Lapel Blazer - ( MO-J06-103 ) - a different iteration from TWorksheets's superb piece, with a bizarre MO- code, 100% thick flannel wool. Size 3, deep black, horn buttons, 2B closure + 3B working sleeves. Fully lined in cupro. 3 outside pockets, 2 inside chest + 2 bottom pockets, 7 in all. Deep vent. Aggressive peak lapels with exquisite 12 eyelet leather string detailing. Immaculate construction.

    Close up

    [​IMG]

    YYPH SS06 Multi-pocket Pants - ( HR-P55-100 ) - 100% signature wool gab, size 2 TTS fit, horn buttons, 3 large front waist pockets + 4 usual ones.

    YYPH SS Tee - ( HA-T91-952 ) Dark navy, 100% medium weight cotton.

    Creepers.

    So, 14 pockets in this outfit. That will do :)

    happy birthday to Mrs David Lee :)

    two bits of color on the pull-tabs holding down the leather, like Mr and Mrs Lee, two lovebirds holding hands -- may it be for a hundred more years

    Issey blazer
    YYPH pants (same as previous photo)
    OXS shoes

    I have been having an issue with these pants in that the fold unravels very easily, any ideas why?

    1. The fabric is too soft.
    2. The hems are too wide.
    3. 1 and 2.

    The cropped pant look ain't supposed to be millimetrically precise in my view. But if you are concerned by it, you may have to take them to the tailor and have them permanently turned up ( sewn ).

    I think I will just because even if i wear it at true waist its too long for me, oddly enough the waist size is fine. I don't mind the neatness, the real issue is that it unravels and i dont want it dragging on the floor getting scratched up :)

    Has anyone taken a look at the regulation lookbook up on the YY site? I thought it was nice if a little underwhelming

    Also, is this young yohji?

    Happy birthday to the missus David and I hope you guys have a great dinner :). You guys should totally do a picture together, hehe.

    Ben, are you referring to the lookbook itself being underwhelming or is it the show? If the former, well it is basically just the runway shots + product codes like they did last season. I guess with the new financiers, fancy look book shoots with high concepts are on hold for a bit which is pretty sad considering the history that YY has with innovative shoots. If the latter, curious to hear your thoughts.

    And yes, that is indeed a young Yohji. Might actually be from Notebook on Cities & Clothes come to think of it...

    Thanks for the best wishes Ivwri and shah, we are just about going out for dinner ( the supersized YY pants come in handy lol ), my wife is super shy for a picture though. ( you both know what she looks like anyway from the other public domain haha )

    I actually quite like the Regulation, they are what they are, uniform made in more utilitarian fabrics for a more youthful audience.

    Btw the YY website has just been updated today, absolutely wrong timing for me since I'm asking SS to enquire quite a few AW12 ( YYPH + Y's ) pieces in the Tokyo sale and I need the AW12 tag codes for reference..... :( Furthernore Hide is down with the flu so I guess all will be in vain like the SS12 sale, well hope he gets well soon.

    Where did regulation appear from? It isn't something I'd heard of or come across before. I'm confused by what 'made for yohji's people' means. Who is doing the making, designing etc if not for Yohji's people (or at least people tangentially related to yohji's people's operation)?

    Fantastic for the food, clothes, or both? [​IMG]. Everything is size 3. Y's in the old days are huge. You should so get the tartan coat on Y! ( not Yoox ), amazing construction. Need 3 layers walking outside, 2 deg C....

    On the plate, chocolate nutty things, jellies, and nougat, wonderful handmade after dinner goodies :)

    Btw, it's not someone, it's someones :) Many masters.

    My F/W 2006 jacket arrived a few days ago, so I'm posting a few fit pics. It's an amazing piece, and I was lucky enough to get it NWT. The fabric is a very soft, luxurious wool. As Asobu suggested it's not gabardine at all, but some kind of flannel or similar. It is very deep black (not shiny at all, as the runway photo suggests). The construction is amazing. It has a total of 10 pockets (what I initially thought might be slits on the front are, in fact, all pockets of various depths). The decorative loops and fraying (not sure what the correct name for this is), go all the way from the lapels to the back of the jacket. There are actually two layers of silk loops and two layers of tassel-like fraying, which are nested within a kind of fold. The buttons are covered in the same fabric. The overall effect is very baroque, but in a fun way. Not what I would call an everyday jacket [​IMG], but perfect for more formal occasions.

    YYPH F/W 2006 Jacket size 4, CDG t-shirt, YYPH F/W 2005 wool trousers, vintage 1960's cap-toe army boots. I really like how the more refined ornamentation on the jacket works with the rougher ornamentation on the CDG t-shirt.
