I just like so much that they really play with different textures and shapes with the fabrics. It really gives a fresh look to it and not too showy.

I was noticing there were several mentionings of Belgian designers to these Japanese designers. Are they saying the Belgians are influenced by the Japanese or the other way around?

I think the traditional way of dressing of Africans and people in the Middle East really remind me of these styles, like how they add layers and play with drapery.

^ i think comme des garcon's latest collection really illustrates this. it's no frills, no tailoring etc... quite refreshing.

Amazing thread

Mode Museum (MOMU) Antwerp will present a retrospective exhibition of fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto March to August 2006. It is the 3rd part of a moving not similar exhibition, so far presented at Pitti Immagine Foundation in Florence and the Musée de la Mode et du Textile in Paris. Each museum provides their own direction. With the Antwerp exhibition, you have the chance to try on Yohji Yamamoto's clothes in cubicles set-up in the museum, adding a more refreshing tactile element. Titled Dream Shop, 80 silhouettes, spanning from the late 80s to today, mark Yohji Yamamoto's singular style plus a view of creative collaborations with other artists/photographers, with emphasis on the later period 1995 to 2005. In keeping with YY's rebel outlook, the look of dream shop is contrary, splashed with harsh white neon lights, quite anti to the general conservation methods of textiles of low light and indeed minimal handling. Maso Nihei, innovative lighting designer for many of YY's fashion shows has been asked to create special atmosphere/mise-en-scene. Here is a chance to get an overview of a legend in fashion.

it's a good question really....
it does seem to be prevalent in japanese fashion design...
perhaps it is something to do with japanese culture..
i have been trying to understand more about this myself...

perhaps some of our japanese members could shed some light on some reasons why they think this might be???...
