Love for Yohji Yamamoto

I am falling in love again. With Yohji Yamamoto.

This evening I visited the main store of Yohji Yamamoto in Tokyo’s fashionable Aoyama district. Amazingly, although I am a great fan of Yamamoto, I had never visited this store yet.

Men’s fashion is downstairs, wooden stairs that you can faintly smell. I love the smell of wood! The floor was wood, too. Very rough wood. It was incredibly large for a Tokyo fashion boutique.

Loved the current Winter collection. Especially a beautiful orange-red silk coat, and a series of black oversized woolen pants. Have to save me some money to get a pair!

At the far end of the store they were showing a video clip of next year’s Spring Summer collection. Gorgeous, with subtle influences from traditional Asian fashion. Even the music was Asian: Indonesian and Japanese. Love the Hakama-inspired pants, be sure to check them out.

Really wanted to show the unedited full clip of the show, but could only find this digest by ELLE TV (the Yohji Yamamoto site still shows the Autumn Winter 2011/2012 clip—the last update is for August…). The Elle clip shows just a few looks of the huge collection, and the quality of the clip is not so good. With the result that the clothes don’t look as beautiful as they are. Still better than nothing!
