    Junya Watanabe ss99. I didn't find the same item exactly, but here are a few gorgeous looks !













    And finally, does someone know which collection does the item in this picture comes from ? The cut is so beautiful... Like paper cutting with scissors, so delicate, it's amazing

    BUT watch out for Junya Watanabe Man Pink, which is women's clothing based on popular designs and using techniques of men's tailoring.

    Oh, so many concepts. It's must be either incredible fun or a nightmare working for Rei. (Ask Tao.)

    i think this is a good idea! i have been saving some various pics from ebay and yahoo.jp but would feel awkward posting them in the archives because they're not mine, and i don't have all the info as you say.

    lumina, that junya collection is just incredible, thanks for sharing

    I don't think it's possible to do a good interview with Rei because of the language barrier and her reluctance to discuss her work in detail. If The New Yorker couldn't do it, no one can.

    i thought the interview she did with interview magazine a few years ago was really good, but it was also the first interview with her i'd ever read. now reading this new interview it sounds like she's giving the exact same responses, even though the questions are different. it seems there's only so much she's willing to say.

    This is literally the first time I hear someone say they read a good interview in Interview.

    well, there are 'structured interviews' and 'unstructured ones', and they produce different material - one isn't better than the other. depends on purpose.

    anyway, apologies if this has been posted earlier:

    Well, at least she is a woman of her word:


    –Rei Kawakubo



    Her raison d'être, spelled out for us in black & white. Literally.
    You can't help but respect that.



    Ai Weiwei + Rei Kawakubo.. Or, as it begs: Rei-n-Ai.

    ^not to imply that there's anything wrong with her being a woman of few words.

    i was surprised she even agreed to do this new interview.

    Correct. I won't do an email interview unless someone twists my hand - it's just boring. And you can't recreate the time and place and the mood of the interviewee. And I love it that some designers won't do an email interview - it's a sign that they respect themselves. I mean, if you care about someone else's work, you don't fire off a few questions by email. I can understand if it's logistically hard, like going from NYC to Japan, but it's still better to do a phone interview.

    Some vintage footage here, although Japanese and French speaker swill find the video more rewarding.
