    He is a romantic womanizer, that's for sure. (and I am not saying that's a bad thing!)

    His clothes are sensual and ritualistic simultaneously.

    Pretty unremarkable, especially the silver reflective outerwear towards the end. The good clothes weren't much to write home about either, aside one or two of them. Not much else to say.

    Default Little help ?

    Have this Yohji with a really cool vintage pin up graphic. The tags faded, canít make out much except for care/content, 90% rayon 10% silk.

    I was thinking it was from fall 1991 ? Anyone know for sure ?

    Does anyone have the tracklist for the latest mens show? Didn't want to bump a thread from 5 months ago so I'm asking here.

    Edit: found the first song in the tracklist which was the one I was looking for. It's a cover of Yosui Inoue's 傘がない (No Umbrella).

    I have something special to share; a VOD of the 2016 Dressmaker documentary released on Vimeo, which I generally hear very little about and wasn't posted in this thread when it released. I don't know how it stacks up against Notebook on Cities and Clothes since I haven't watched it, but I am sure everyone who likes Yohji will also like this documentary. Here are some good quotes and low-res screenshots I took. DL link at the bottom.

    "Do you want to exchange your life for creation? If you don't create, then are you going to die? Then create... If you design clothing as a hobby, please stop it. You're just behaving like a 'fashion designer'; 'stylish', which I don't like too much... Get out of my sight."

    "I have to go out in the vanity fair, which I really don't like, but I have to pretend. These people like rumours very much. So people say Yohji is mysterious... Because I'm lying!"

    Also, cool pictures from FW18. I got them from an all-black branded USB key they gave me when I went shopping at the Paris store back then. Seeing the collection from the back in pictures is a whole other universe, these photos made me truly understand why Yohji loves the back so much. Download link for all the files is at the bottom.

    I admit his work used to be the emblem of the rebel, the dark goth label... I just have a hard time appreciating his look-this-is-the-most-cynical-rhetorical-possible-ever quotes. I'm not sure about teenagers in other parts of the world but kids here have invented a parody pattern of "Yohji fake quotes", eg, "Mao is the future of mankind --- Yohji Yamamoto" usually coupled by a picture of YY smoking...

    He is still much appreciated in Europe thanks to Grailed and archive stuff, though I don't see many teenagers go that deep into his aesthetic or get hardcore about him. And it goes without saying that when bought new he is way too expensive for all young people without daddy's credit card at hand. And I guess if he was more popular he would be in some shitty IG fashion memes too. Personally, I am enamoured with his output. He is still making fantastic clothing after all this time, so in some way he deserves to bitch and moan about what's around him. He hasn't given up yet, is the feeling I get from his recent collections.

    Do you have some examples to share? Would love to see them, much better than what our comedic geniuses are coming up with.
