yes. although having said that, i've never actually seen one in real life. But still, the answer is yes.

johnny -
you've never actually seen a *woman* who dresses like this in real life? or
you've never actually seen a *man* who is attracted to women who dress like this, in real life?

curious minds want to know!

travolta, i have gotten so much pleasure out of this thread. i followed your link to firstView and looked at as much as i could last night, and will do a little more research as i have time today. it's not like you can speed through it all. i wish there were more great resources online so you could see the pieces from front and back, and videos so you could see them in motion, on the body.

i agree with your assessment of his work. it's great when you can see an artist approach problems and find solutions in the work, whatever the medium. often when you look at the work over time you can see what the artist finds essential - his or her "signature"- and what is refined, cast off, returned to. watanabe is worthy of that kind of study. i look at ann demeulemeester this way as well.

thanks so much!

beautiful, travolta! I've been lurking in FirstView archives for several times now and i love every single collection of those you posted, they're wonderful. i was wondering if you were gonna include this one but then i realized this thread is all about the 90's.

*waits for 2000s thread*

spacemiu, i agree w/ your observation. i really appreicate his process..he went really far to test what was possible w/ the integration of metal in a couple of his collections. i feel he is extremly interested in defying proportion, but it's not without regard to the wearer..his earlier collections half way accomplish what his last few have done..i'm thinking the "milk maid s/s 2004?" collection and the most recent one--both are what i'd consider reach "couture" volumes..but they are so light and easy..its hard to do..he married form and function. he seems to know how to push the materials and the concepts w/out losing out on the bigger picture.i think my understanding of watanabe is going come in bits in pieces...i'll elaborate more later

mullet, do you want to start that thread? it's all yours. i posted a bunch on the japanese avant garde thread, but it definately needs it's own. i decline..my reason being, i've been a bit of a post whore lately

This stuff really is timeless, sort of. It could be 20 years old and still look fresh!
