    Default Yohji Yamamoto pour Homme FW07 - Paris



    Weird [:^)] He sometimes does these crazy prints, and you always wonder where they came from.... and where is the black?

    I like this a lot. It's playful without being clownish; and there's something punkish about the way the clothes are modified and styled together, along with the shoes. The prints are certainly weird, but they work in a cartoony way.
    ...I mean the ephemeral, the fugitive, the contingent, the half of art whose other half is the eternal and the immutable.

    the real question is... why did Atelier pick him up? especially with this collection
    www.AlbertHuangMD.com - Digital Portfolio Of Projects & Designs

    why not? yy makes great clothes and fits in to A's black aesthetic very well.

    Atelier picked him up because of garments like these, the first coat is especially cool, although I doubt someone under 6' could pull it off.

    I was just wondering where the black is, and then I saw the 2nd set of pics. I like these a lot, especially these two, in particular the coats and pants...







    ... I'll be looking forward to checking these out at Atelier or Alan Bilzerian next fall.

    Indeed. BTW, Yohji is like 5'5", and he wears this stuff, and it looks great on him. So much is in the soul...

    I really like this collection. Especially the Lupin inspired knits. In Japan, the anime/manga artist who does this anime style is incredibly famous. He also did the videos for Daft Punk's discover album and is a cultural icon on par with Miyazaki. Its similar to when Iceberg did the Mickey Mouse / disney knits from decade past. It's somewhat playful, beautiful, and romantic at the same time. Also, all black F*cking boring, so I'm warming up well to this collection!

    Oh man, I looooove those coats. Its a shame I have absolutely no easy access to YY, and can never try anything on.



    Alot of the paneling with knit patterns on the coats reminds me alot of Watanabe a couple years back.

    This is great. The more I look at this collection the more I like it. I enjoy the bursts of color (the red!) amongst the beautiful black coats. The coats fall so elegantly on the body. A little surprised to see cropped, skinny-ish pants but it seems to work well.



    djrajio can you tell me more about Lupin and/or the anime/manga artist who is famous for this drawing style? I am still trying to work out the knits..

    let us raise a toast to ancient cotton, rotten voile, gloomy silk, slick carf, decayed goat, inflamed ram, sooty nelton, stifling silk, lazy sheep, bone-dry broad & skinny baffalo.

    His name is Shotaro Ishinomori who did Kamen Rider. Actually I was mistaken though because Daft Punk Discovery was done by Leiji Matsumoto, who did Galaxy Express 999. But you can check out some of his work here: http://www.ishimoripro.com/
