    pretty sparse presentation , wasn't really a whole lot to work with and i am impressed Tim Blanks managed to write even that much on it. don't really have much to say, seems like stuff that was just assembled together for media purposes.

    FtB, I echo your reaction. This could be Y's.

    That dude is actually too thin for wearing those jackets, but that is not our biggest problem...

    What is this suppose to mean? There is nothing there! These clothes look, at best, like a lame Y's collection. As mentioned above.

    My heart feels empty now...

    The model needs a few inches of shoulder.. Is it the recession or why is there so much bad/boring stuff? Y's, RAF, Rick all really disappointing imho

    Just a really disappointing showing. The silhouettes are very Yohji, but still very boring. Honestly, Yohji would've been one of the last people in my mind to let this whole recession thing damage his aesthetic. Hell, there was a whole era of Depression-era dressing tha could've made for a fantastic (if a little contrived) of a reference point that would've worked perfectly for his purposes. The fact that these suits are ill-fitting — and not in the good, slightly askew, but interesting Yohji way — and that the presentation itself is so bland is a sign of bad times, man.

    the proportion on frankenstein's fit are more flattering than the YYPH

    Let's consider the possibility that Yohji may not have had as much involvement in designing this collection than as in the past.

    to be honest i've had that feeling for a while...not to mention the collections are so big with the weekly releases and the womens line being the cornerstone of the brand.

    I thought that was what Avanster meant in his first post. This is like one of those collections that a "design team" does when the headline designer is leaving a big house (like Phobe Philo at Chloe for example). It's a copy of the signature style, painting by numbers.

    Yeah, it's what I implied but after some thought I decided it needed to be said. It really goes to show the extent to which the house is built on Yohji-san's charisma. Perhaps house isn't even the right word, it's run much more like a family business.
    Time will tell in September when the women's collections show..
