Wow, I think this is one of the worst Yamamoto collections I've ever seen

It doesn't appeal to me either, although the oversized jackets with oversized polka dots are interesting, just like some other items, but as a collection it doesn't stun me at all.

And here's Yohji right after the last kids, I love the look on his face, and I love this collection and show, baseball is the perfect mix of my two favorite things, youth and intelligence, and he does a pretty good take on it. Feeling very endeared to Yohji right now :p

Yohji Yamamoto : Lou Gehrig Lyricism .


From Fashion Wire Daily


By Godfrey Deeny



Baseball, as you know, is not exactly a popular sport here in France, though it is in Japan, where designer Yohji Yamamoto was a respectable first baseman and a mean hitter in his youth.

Those moments on the diamond must have come flooding back to Yamamoto when he was creating his spring summer 2005 men’s collection, inspired exclusively by America’s favorite summer game.

In a delicious slight of hand from the designer, every look had some baseball reference, from Yankee’s striped tops albeit with cashmere trim, knee high socks, two-inch wide stripe drawers and lots of natty takes on cleats.

Over these references, Yohji draped his classic midnight blue and ink black jackets.Cut long waisted and high-buttoned, shown in military patch pocket style or with eccentric blotching circles they all looked elegant.

His soundtrack was a further homage to all things wholesome in the USA, with several versions of “Take me Down to the Ball Park,” and snippets of old radio commentary from breathless reporters on greats like Joe DiMaggio.

“In my generation in Japan, we all grew up playing baseball. Today I wanted to recall that nostalgia for America, of what’s good about the American dream,” Yamamoto told FWD post show.

And, two days before the 4Th of July, and on a weekend where workers erected stands on the Champs Elysees for the July 14 celebrations, nostalgia for Americana didn’t seem like a bad idea to us either.

it's worth mentioning, however, that the actual song is 'Take me Out to the Ball Game'...
*must check our facts people, if we are to be journalists!...
