oh---
i almost forgot about this skirt...
it is really amazing...
it's designed to looked like an apron that has been folded down and pushed askew...
it's no secret how much i love aprons...
i bought three of them while in tokyo...
...
but the store i was in did not have my size in this skirt, so i had to skip it...
really an excellent and outstanding design though...
something very very special, imho...

i may be sorry that i let it go...
but i thought that it would become complicated trying to find the right top to wear with it...
...
i really love it though...

Adidas unveils Yohji Yamamoto adizero F50, lion-dog boots of Gyasi Zardes, Jonny Steele

October 25, 2013





adidas

There's wild soccer boots, and then there's the boots that Gyasi Zardes and Jonny Steele will be wearing this weekend.

Designed by award-winning Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto, the brand-new, limited-edition Yohji Yamamoto adizero F50 was released by adidas on Friday.

According to adidas, the front of the boots display a pair of imperial lion-dogs who, in ancient times, guarded the emperors of Japan. The traditional design has been placed in the context of Japan's modern sci-fi culture, creating a spiritual connection between the past and the future.

"My inspiration is a mixture of ancient traditions and modern sci-fi from Japanese culture," Yamamoto explains. "I hope the inspiration of the boot harmonizes the players and gives them extra confidence to express themselves without any fear. People should feel free to express themselves. Just follow your own instinct."

If you've always wanted a pair of lion-dog soccer cleats, now is your chance. But you better hurry, because only 2,000 pairs will be made.

i also have to say that the interiors of all the shops really remind me of the NYC shop...
the industrial open space is very much like a loft space in soho or tribeca...
kind of ironic since the NYC store is no longer there...

but it makes me feel very comfortable in the space because it is somehow familiar to me...

i don't know if they have always been like that all over the world...
but it is how i have always been familiar with viewing and shopping for yohji's designs...
i was told that he liked everything to be in this one big space - all white- like a gallery...

that it was how he felt the clothes could best be viewed...
so it makes sense to see it like this, even in tokyo...

i really like it...

thanks for sharing runner!

you are welcome softgrey
the +noir sweater looks great on you.
it would also be nice to wear it on sumowatching.

the syte cardigan already sold out in spite of a new arrival. the syte pieces are sort of easier to wear and the prices are good.
I guess they will produce the second batch soon. rather they must be able to do it with flexibility, especially because this is their online business experiment which is more about selling what customers want than selling what they YY inc make.

leslie kee did some campaign images for the main line S/S 2014 as well which you would see at parco etc these days.
will post if I find them online.

yes I think it's basically white in the store space. but sometimes it goes on the opposite side, for example around 2005-7, if I remember rightly.

runner---
thanks for the comment on the sweater~!
it's from the outlet, so thanks very much for guiding me there...
i do enjoy yohji knits!

re: s'yte
i think the men's deck pants are amazing and will be so good on you!
they are one of the best things i've seen in a very long time...

this henley- (which, they call henry on the site, and i just realised that this is the same thing - just "japanified"...!!!)
is another great thing, imo...
i love the long hem...and it's no secret that i always love a henley/henry!...
...

i also think this big T quite special...it has a nice feeling of hagoromo...
...

http://syte.yohjiyamamoto.co.jp

though- overall- i think they seem to be focusing more on the menswear with this project...
i was going to order some stuff, but i didn't find enough things that i really love to make it worth the effort while i was only there for a short time...

i look forward to your report if you get something...

nani! my comment's fault
they don't produce that type of jeans this season while levis red may have something similar.


I have been hoping a physical shop for syte will pop up but no luck so far.


you look super cool in the suspender pants like a realistic cartoon hero, or it's more like you look cooler in them in reality than any cartoon heroes.

well- i confess that your comment did influence me...

that is why i looked for them while i was in tokyo, so i could try them in person and see how they were...
but they were gone and there was nothing else denim like that...

that is how i wound up getting the black pants with the stripes at the waist...
then i thought about it and i think the cut of both pants is probably similar...
probably the black ones are also meant to be more on the hips, but because my hips curve, they sit higher on me, closer to my waist...
probably this is how the jeans would also have fit me and i think i would have liked that...


you are right...
the levis red line does seem to have a couple of pairs of high waisted, loose, cropped pants...
they seem quite nice, with the silk lining and all...
but the colour of the denim is really different...

i'm glad you like the big pants...

when i was in the store in mini aoyama, i styled them with a tank top and then i put a sort of henley cardigan on top and a wide brim hat...
the sales girl was like...
...
she said they would never even think of styling them that way...
i guess you know yohji, always with a white shirt...

i asked her to tell him that he has to come up with some other ideas for those of us who don't like white shirts...

^ naruhodo
asked the outlet if they have the jeans there now, but they didn't have anything denim of that kind of style.
the sales person said YY homme could have some this spring. btw, that person was male, so now they have more of YY homme as well even though it's under the store nams of Y's. also seems like Y's for men is going to be revived next season, which means they are to have the newborn Y's for men too one year later there.


some current options, just for reference
tsubu tsubu (dotted) denim and elastin denim from mercibeaucoup
wool linen denim from tricot
