    The red stripe on this shirt, is it movable? There are at least 6 different models from the s/s 08 show wearing the same shirt but the stripes arranged a different way each time.

    These shirts seem to be an extension of the "Y" suspender shirt he did for last spring, and goes with the bondage theme some of his clothes have this season. I don't find them particularly fresh, am surprised to hear they are selling so well. If there's two key stylistic images prevalent in this collection, it's the idea of the strap and the pocket, and I'm much more interested in what Yohji has done with the latter this season, by altering and distorting them to exaggerated effect on shirts, jackets and pants. I don't think Yohji's innovated too much with his menswear over the years in silhouette, but I think this is the first in a while he's proposed something more unique.

    i love yojis clothes and his whole aesthetic however sadly i think i'd be to small to fit into most of them, i know they make smlller sizes but i think the look would be to much for me. I mean he does the avant garde oversized style perfect i just think some of his pieces would be too oversized and ultimately unflattering. Has anyone else particularly small tried on his clothes and could help me confirm or deny this?

    Not all of his clothes fit that way from the main line, and Y's can be pretty tight actually. If you have access to it, you should go try some stuff on and see for yourself.

    Yohji is really cranking it up with collaborations...

    HEADS UP

    DON'T BE surprised if fashion chameleon Agyness Deyn is photographed
    out in Hoxton wearing a veil before long; Japanese milliner Misa
    Harada's bridal-themed spring/summer 2008 collaboration with Yohji Yamamoto is putting wedding chic at the very top of the style register.



    "The collection is entitled Just Married
    - this symbolises the designer's marriage, or commitment, to the label
    and also the Yohji Yamamoto concept: women wearing men's clothes,"
    Harada tells us. "My take on the collection was to translate masculine
    hat forms to feminine ones, adding a touch of haute couture. Yohji's
    team gave me complete freedom over my designs, which was lovely."


    Teamed with Yamamoto's starkly pretty clothes, the headwear certainly
    makes a statement, which is precisely what Harada - who confesses she
    got into millinery "totally by accident", after being encouraged by
    Philip Treacy's tutor to apply for the Royal College of Art in the
    Eighties - intends to do in her work.


    "I am here to introduce the fun of wearing hats," she says. "My hats
    are totally wearable and never occasionwear. Japanese people are always
    so hungry for fashion - their attention to detail is always phenomenal
    and always fascinates me." (April 11 2008, AM)

    a lot of pants from this season are actually cut very slim in the legs...pretty much skinny pants. The waist however is cut extra big, they're meant to be worn with a belt and kinda saggy in the waist. There is a very nice white shirt with navy knit sleeves (meant to be worn extra long, not bunched up) as well as the whole back is knit as well, that piece is very slim fitting. Unfortunately a lot of the regular shirts come in one size only (3) and the sleeves aren't that long, body is kinda boxy in fit. Was disappointed with that. The t-shirts are all very slim fitting as well, so if you're smaller you can consider checking those out...there's a lot of them, i'm thinking of picking up a piece dyed charcoal crewneck short sleeve.




    A lot of the jackets seem to be pretty big on the hanger, but when you wear it, it draped in a way that doesn't look like it's swallowing you.

    this article is a bit misleading. it's not yohji. it's michiko suzuki, y's red label that the milliner was working with. red label is supposed to do some collaboration each season. the partner's creation plays more important part there than in such collaborations as we normally see.

    Thanks wire, enjoyed looking at those. The only yohji mainline I ever bought was from the two 02 collections. I absolutely loved the SS02 in particular, including the first look - I have the jeans (which were probably my first knowlingly-this-is-ridiculously-unjustifyably expensive-buy-it-anywaypurchase) and a pair of shoes from that collection. I think it's the best use of denim in any "designer" collection I've seen, at least for men (junya probably wins for women).

    thanks very much for the pictures and articles, wire. I'd like to see that French Yakuza collection in its entirety - i think his design perfectly captures the fantasy world of Japanese gangsters (i say that because i have no idea what the reality is like, only know what i see through films), and the cinematic elements such as masculine bravado, tough as nails, mysterious, oddly serene as a man in control of his universe and knows exactly how the chess game will end - especially evident through his dressing of the characters in Takeshi Kitano films.

    that collection above actually strikes me not so much as French, but rather some kind of working class English hooligan gang who made their money through all that extorting and pimping and decided to spend it on nice clothes, but did not have a clue as to how a suit should fit so they didn't get a typical savile row. rather they probably bullied their tailor into making suits they felt more comfortable to go knuckle someone up in. It's quite brilliant.

    wire, the reason I liked the denim so much was not because of the pieces themselves necessarily, but because of how he properly intergrated jeans and denim jackets convincingly into a "high fashion" context. I thought it seemed really fresh, effortless, uncontrived. it was around the same time that junya was doing his first round of collabs with levis, and this was a different way of doing denim. not as "authentic", but in a sense more imaginative. it was also a bit less serious than most YY collections. The quality of the denim and the washes (spotted horse) were also really high. But the prices were mad. I remember seeing the jeans I liked at 545 euros in the YY shop in paris and getting actually angry because I wanted them but could not justify buying jeans at that price. then I bought them later.

    YYPH line still has denim from time to time...this season there is a carry over from last winter that is a baggy light blue whiskered jean, but i did not like it because it had some strip of metallic silver tinfoil detail that made them seem not timeless enough.



    the non-denim jeans are great though...love the indigo dyed baggy patchwork twill jeans from ss08. too heavy to wear in the summer however, i wonder if they're a carry over as well.

    Thanks for posting Wire.



    S/S 2000 was the year I started falling in love with Yohji's clothes. I remember buying those super low crotch baggy pants the first time when I was in London.



    I will try to post some photos later...still trying to get internet connection at my new place.

    Some photos I took from the Antwerp Yohji Yamamoto store:



    Repost from purchases thread:
    I thought it was quite amazing - and the largest Yohji store that I've seen. The white walls and floors, and the sweeping open spaces really make
    the clothes stand out. The abundance of windows allows much natural
    light to spill in. The entrance feels free and open, yet the further
    you venture inside, there is an increasing sense of intimacy, as there
    are less windows and its more quiet - you can't hear the street noise,
    nor the music you hear at the entrance.
    I was pleasantly surprised
    to find that they also carried Limi Feu there (as well as all the other
    lines including Y's, Noir, etc.)
