yes kyakurai is basically something like that above. and used in a certain context in a broader sense, kyakurai is to transgress. only if one is on the home stretch with one's career, one is encouraged to do what one forbade, avoided, resisted, etc. trying to remain what one has been is, in a way, confinement.
zeami would like it to be zigzagging between one and the other, over here and over there, what one does and what one usually doesn't.

yes share/洒落 can mean those, a pun, a joke. but it has a bit more complicated meaning or even is a word with double meaning. it's jest, humour and also tastefulness, smartness, etc. so share could be sort of refined play.

i LOVE polka dots...
i don't have enough polka dots in my life...


i almost got a regulation by YY shirt in chiffon polka dots last fall, but in the end i returned it because the polka dots did not match at the seam in the back of the shirt and that just bothered me...
...

the white one is cute, imo...
the longer one seams almost unnecessarily complicated though...
the extra 'stuff' does not seem to enhance the design or coolness enough to make it worthwhile...

the use of different sized polka dots already adds interest enough for me...
this also mitigates the issue of random alignment of dots...
the tiny collar on the white shirt is cute...

thanks runner...!

Music composed by our beloved Ryuichi Sakamoto for our beloved Yohji for F/W 95/96. I'd always subconsciously associated these two in my mind, they share a similar austere poetry and lyrical romanticism. Probably old news for you all, but first time I hear of this, so happy.

What art, what beauty.

yes- it's lovely...

i did a little diggin recently after you guys brought him up in the tokyo shopping thread and found that he had made a movie with david bowie in the 80's, so i watched that...

then i realized that he is also featured in madonna's Rain video.....
i knew he looked familiar when i first saw that video, but it took until now for me to put the pieces together...

i wasn't familiar with him, and yet i was, without realizing it was him...

anyway- sadly, i recently saw in the news that sakamotosan is going to stop touring in order to be treated for some cancer he has now...
though he will continue working and writing i guess...
hope he will make a full and speedy recovery...

The stripey top is cute.
OMG--gotta brush up on my fieldwork...haven't heard that for 20 years....

Well, I'm finding out that Yohji sometimes plays guitar at Sakamoto's performances. The man is full of surprises. Yes let's really hope Sakamoto-san makes a full and speedy recovery indeed!!

You know Sakamoto also had a kind of important acting role in "The Last Emperor", for which won an Oscar for the original soundtrack. He's written the music for tons of big-budget films, mostly for Bertolucci but also for others.

err...
i had never seen or heard of that song!


i guess it wasn't so radio friendly so MTV never played it here...
OT-*europa by thomas dolby is one of my fave songs of all time..."we'll be the pirate twins again..."
.........

thanks for posting that runner!
what a handsome and talented man!

i agree that the new YY stuff is fun...
the stripey top is definitely an attractive piece...
but i also really like the men's pants and the frankenstein illustration...
all the illustrations are great, imho...
and i like the contrasting panels of fabric on the shirts...
good stuff...

haha!
that pic of sakamoto is very appropriate in this thread...
yohji as masked superhero, sakamoto as superhero...
i guess everyone wants to be a superhero in some way...


thx for the additional pics of the pants and top...
the top is so kawaii...and i really like the 'genie' pants!...


thanks also for the pics of the windows...
the first thing i thought was that it looks like a person in an art gallery...
then i read the copy on the windows...
art meets life...
i think they achieved the desired effect beautifully...
and the designs on the clothes make so much more sense when viewed in this context...
such a beautiful display of art and design!
art meets commerce!
it's a win/win situation, imho...

so...
i bought a vintage piece of YY...
it's a knited cape with a big silver zip up the front...
will be lovely worn over a jacket...
also lovely wrapped around the neck twice and worn as a scarf...
i think i have found the piece to replace my lost cashmere wrap now~!
yattah!

Oops I deleted my post. I didn't think this was the right thread for it. Here it is again

Real Madrid's new kit


source: wwd

I think I would prefer the footwear in black and gold, I read somewhere that was the original plan for those, instead of in colour. Too kitschy for me.
