you mean the thousands of archive pieces he destroyed? it crushed my heart
yeah, thats what i mean. 6000 pieces according to the interview
spend 4 hours reading the thread. bloody awesome! will join the conversation as soon as i find spare time!
"if the HL interview is online would you mind posting a link? I'd love to have a read"
i tried searching for it before you posted this
i couldnt find it.
the magazine is called dapper dan
i really like this magazine. last issue had an ann d, kva and siki im interview. there seems to be a theme with yohji pieces making an appearance at the end of each magazine too (ive only read 2 issues out of 5)
p4: a couple of short articles/interviews about it-
Great answer. That New York Times interviewer was pretty terrible....
Before this turns into a Helmut Lang thread, here's some photos of Yohji working:
did yohji design all of pina bausch's costumes? some of the outfits in the wenders film are amazing.
fun fact: kris van assche's boyfriend gave him a photograph of pina bausch smoking a cigarette. he likes the attitude portrayed.
that is all.
Watched Kitano's "Brother" in class, It said wardrobe by Yohji Yamamoto in the into credits and I was like, ""
anyone know how those Mid zipper sneakers fit in comparison to say CP's? Quality?
I don't think so actually. Costume design was credited to Rolf Borzik & Marion Cito. I also looked into it earlier and the only collaboration I could find was when Yohji did costume design for her and her troupe in 1998 for an anniversary performance. I think she wore Yohji in her private life though. Seen her pictured in a bit of Yohji. If anyone has more info would be glad to see it though. A lot of the costumes like I wrote earlier were really reminiscent of Yohji to me and like you say, it was really amazing.
. Apparently, Yohji and Takeshi Kitano are friends. I swear Kitano just gets Yohji suits for every film he is in though, lol. Watched Sonatine again recently and everything in the movie looked like Yohji could have designed it. Complete with flashy print shirts .
I assume you are talking about the Y's ones that are on Wrongweather? If so, they fit true to size. half a size large from my own experience. Got them in a size 44 and they are pretty snug. I wear a 44 in Ann and a 45 in AW11-12 MMM Gats if that helps any. I can't compare the quality to Cps or anything like that, but the leather is alright and the zipper is pretty solid. Fairly comfortable too (not as comfy as MMM Gats, but YMMV).
I just realized that every time I wear out the silk tapered hakamas I get compliments from women in the form of them saying they "want my pants" and asking where they could get a pair.
sounds like a job for Ivwri's tailor
I'm not sure if these have been posted, but I found some images of the Spring/Summer 2001 collection. From an old Superfuture thread. You can see some of the recurring themes: double lapels, oversized sleeves, busy prints, etc. Check out the super arm suits! There's even a 50s-style nerdy professor look.
Spoiler: Yohji Yamamoto Spring/Summer 2001
