^ true, it is really non-functional which is strange for YY
it was from when he did the wooden dress as well, which at least looks more aesthetically appealing than the chest armor above

thanks user500 for all the images



it's from pinocchio series.
as Inaya says, a model in a "pinocchio dress" etc.
it seems that he was inspired with a bit dark and heavy marchen mood of some sort.

hmmm...ok...i see...

i have to say that i haven't seen any of that stuff in any of the exhibits or retrospectives that he's done...
and he chose all the pieces himself that he felt were important in some way...
so he must not have thought that this was so successful either...

i think a bunch of wonky collections came out around this time...
this is the moment when everything shifted really hard from the 80's to the grunge-y 90's...
it was not a good moment for fashion in general...imo...

:p

and yes--- thank you user500 for the images...
it's fascinating since i had no awareness of that piece...and the whole pinocchio collection?...


marchen---another word i will have to go and look up now...
thanks runner!...
...

eta---does marchen mean fairy tale or something?

THE EARLY DAYS #2: Yohji Yamamoto


Returning to the early days of a fashion designer’s work is an interesting exercise that maps an intellectual and aesthetic journey, an evolution of means and commercial motives, and a general progression with the times. For A#2′s Yohji Yamamoto this has been a long road, as he began showing in Paris over two decades ago in 1981.
Crowned the master of black, Yohji was a revolutionary who interpreted classical European tailoring into a new and exciting silhouette, falling with a new exaggerated volume and asymmetric cut. With a loose androgyny, Yohji introduced a generation to a comfortable luxury built on draping and texture, crisp whites contrasting inky black and rare bursts of bold colour.
Through the years, Yohji has not wavered from his vision, despite the dramatic changes in mainstream style and within the work of other designers. As the images below illustrate, elements of his work can be seen following through many collections, from the earliest images we have from 1983, all the way through to his most recent show. From a polished lace-up shoe to a flowing white shirt, his signature is unmistakeable, and his legacy an inspiration to many as a benchmark of fine craftsmanship and a sensual approach to avant-garde fashion.

‘Une image de Marc’, Marc Ascoli for Yohji Yamamoto


“Marc would enter your head,
like a voice that distorts,
like a mirror that forces you
to look at yourself differently.”

-Nick Knight
Creative director Marc Ascoli spent over 10 years at the helm of Yohji Yamamoto’s label, shaping the aesthetic vision of the company through creative collaborations that produced iconic and beautiful imagery since 1984. Working with some of the industry’s leading photographers and pushing their skill and vision to its most avant-garde, Marc has effectively channeled the intangible charisma and spark of Yohji into a commercially viable image that remained aspirational and mysterious.


Marc Ascoli is now the creative director of Martine Sitbon’s Rue du Mail.
