    Finally got my first yohji piece, which I'm wearing in my profile picture.

    Just asking for help in identifying which collection these are from. It's Y's Black Label, and the identifying code is YM - P19 - 315 which I'm having trouble making sense of. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    They are 100% Y's women's pants, very likely ss08 if the size of the pants is numerical.

    Hi all

    Yohji Yamamoto’s mastery of menswear
    "Once its enfant terrible, Yohji Yamamoto is now an elder statesman of fashion, his cool, minimalist menswear more desirable than ever and his label achieving double-digit growth. He talks to Mark C O’Flaherty about his striking collection and why he’ll never fall out of love with black. Portrait by Mark C O’Flaherty"​

    That wool pant got me drooling lol. His stuffs might be boring to look at but totally different once they're on a body. I used to own a bomber leather jacket from his Y's label, but sold it due to the naked girl tattoo on the back got me into trouble with cops and some random soccer moms. Still regretting it sometimes :(

    Hey all, I'm in need of assistance in finding some info about Yohji.

    I distinctly remember having read or seen a post regarding Yohjis' time at his mothers shop and how he got requests from customers who wanted to resemble Hollywood actors or celebrities, something he ultimately got fed up with. Does this ring a bell to anyone? Unfortunately I can't seem to find this anywhere, any and all help would be greatly appreciated!
