Why do architects like Yohji so much?
Whenever I talk clothes with architects, most of them tend to revere YY alot. Is it coz alot of his pieces have an element of sculpted beauty in them?

definitely... its like what issey miyake used to inspire in people particularly in the eighties.... the pieces have always been very considered and sculptural and so when youre dealing with individuals that work with form then designers like this always seem to prevail

It's beautifully constructed, uniquely designed, and most of all, very "respectable" looking, i.e. not ridiculous or scream "fashion victim!"

^and also there's this correlation with utter modernism throughout his body of work....and like architecture his design is supremely timeless.

Maybe also from my observations, the clothes themselves also have an aura of that "hidden genius" energy wrapped in them.

And maybe bc it is not very popular and obvious:-) Most of the time the clothes look simple, but the construction is solid and the proportion is perfect.

And yes it is all black:-)) and it doesn't require a perfect body to wear.
