    Finally! This is kind of mysterious though. I echo jcotteri's reaction, where do you come from mysterious yy-pour-homme-poster...

    And where is the rest of it? I demand someone with access to share the complete collection with the rest of SZ.

    I doubt the poster has any more photos, the article from which they are excerpted only features these two. Thanks for bringing them to our attention, though.
    Was it a mini collection? Were the photos specifically taken to be showcased in the press/on the internet ? The article is being extremely vague.

    I like the two silhouettes. As often with Yohji menswear, even though there are specific details that I instrinsically don't like, it works perfectly together. Not too big on the second pair of shoes though.

    Real shame that I didn't get to see the showroom this time. It appears there is a glimmer of hope for the line just yet. Need to see more.

    Wow. Intrinsically is a strong word. What don't you like about it, I'm curious.

    Maybe the word is a bit too stong for what I mean. I mean that there are certain details that I don't find appealing in themselves. Like the fact the the shoulders on the coat are lowered in such a way that they shorten the arm, this makes me think of something oversized in a wrong way. Or the fringes on the first jacket, I usually hate them. But the way they are used, they make sense to me, aesthetically. It looks coherent, those details bring something to the garment here, while most of the time I saw them they would look like parasites to the aesthetic. I don't know if that makes more sense. It's not the first time I feel this with Yohji, his designs help me get rid of preconceptions.

    I see what you mean now. Yohji also helps me to recontextualise specific elements that I would normally want to dissociate myself from, and imo does it very successfully - like the obi/cummerbund in AW 05, gaudy manga prints in AW 07, plaids in AW 08.

    TOKYO—Yohji Yamamoto is returning to the runway to present his men’s collection and he’s doing it in on his home turf.

    Yohji Yamamoto Inc. said Thursday it will stage a men’s fashion show here on April 1. A spokeswoman said it’s too early to disclose details since the designer is still working on the collection but the show won’t necessarily be specific to the fall-winter season.

    The company has halted its men’s shows in Paris for the past two seasons in favor of showroom appointments. As reported, financially troubled Yohji Yamamoto Inc. filed for bankruptcy protection last year. Japanese private equity fund Integral Corp. subsequently took control of the house and is restructuring the business.

    The Tokyo show is considered a one-off event for the moment, the spokeswoman said.

    Yamamoto launched his first men’s collection in Paris in 1984, a few years after he decamped to the French capital to show his women’s wear creations. The company said this is the first time in 19 years that the designer, known for his avant-garde tailoring in his signature black, has presented a men's collection in his native Tokyo.

    “I… have been [absent from the] Tokyo fashion shows for almost 20 years,” the designer said in a statement. “The men’s fashion is suffering in Japan, so I hope to light a fire.”

    The show, which will take place at one of Tokyo’s historic Olympic stadiums, won’t coincide with the city’s official fashion calendar. Japan Fashion Week caps its four-day run on March 26.

    Thanks a lot for posting this article, Faust. It feels very encouraging to know he will do a show again. I really look forward to see it.

    Oh ! Thanks for the news. I'm very curious to see this. The fact that he's not doing it in the middle of the Tokyo fashion week isn't bad, that way his show will be a special event aside from the others, and I hope it will give him back his prestige after all the problems he had these last months.

    back to his roots , although tokyo has changed quite a bit from the days of the big 3 , will be interesting to see the next collections that result from other designers reacting to this show

    Yohji himself... and in Tokyo! I'm really excited, after all those bad news.

    thanks for the post Faust!

    I will actually be in Japan two days AFTER this show...not that I could actually attend it, if I was there earlier, unless I pulled serious strings...

    I am looking forward to this!
