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?
yes and I think it was not a good moment for designers either, at least in tokyo.
I remember there was a trend of designer-brand avoidance rising as a reaction against the designers' clothes boom from the 80's. what started to be extremely popular was an "authentic" label such as junya man has been collaborating with since its start. there was a big revival of all such labels. representatively, 501's were deified, even among designers.

funny because marchen is a word we use ordinarily here in the far east.
it's interesting to know what is marked and what is unmarked over there.

about the wooden chest piece, it's a bit grotesque (albeit playful, poetic) like bracelli's work from centuries ago. but it can be a certain form of rebellion, anti-classic.
in that sense, it may be consistent with his work.
and we have this kind of chest lion btw.

to me more like de chirico's mannequin than "pinocchio"
in terms of geometric panels, nail/stud-like dots...

thank you a lot for posting!

i really like it also when he employs discoloration (i assume it is), the y's collection from the beginning of 2000, when he made this with a long row of looks, is one of my absolute favorites (unfortunately a video of it on youtube is deleted by now).

marchen i think is adopted from the original german word maerchen, which means fairytale.

the fading reminds me of what you do when you decide to give a new life to an old kimono you never wear any more.
also, of his collections there are some that show slavic influence.
this F/W 91 seems to be one of them.

de chirico and decolorization
i recently saw an interview and yohji talked about how he likes clothing that seems to be secondhand...or worn...
clothing that has had a life or a history...
even if it is a school uniform...

he likes the way things look once they have been worn for some time so he tries to give this feeling to his clothing designs...

interesting, no?...

all these pics are great- thank you runner...

the 95 menswear collection looks really good!
i really like that oversized jacket and the blk and wht sweater...

after so many years of skinny skinny suits..
i think i am ready for some bigger, boxier jackets now~
*i like a boxy jacket with a narrow bottom actually...
it is a good, androgynous look...

i bet i could wear a lot of this stuff actually...
:p
