Oh my God, I *love* him. I hate journalists. I pretty much would be the same way. He's awesome.

The Tristan/Isolde reference = gold. lol @ minimalism. I didn't think about it like that and I champion the minimalist lifestyle so. No wonder my room's a mess.

Perectly stated!

While I agree that his men's collection, for me, leaves something to be desired, I agree with Alda about what Yohji means by hating fashion "fashion". Fashion is what's popular and "in style" it has nothing to do with "style" or design or art or history or elegance.

I hate fashion in the sense that it is so forced and then gets distilled through department stores, corporations and advertising. However, I love design, cuts, fabrics and the concepts behind the designers vision.

Y-3 is really just Yamamoto giving direction and a concept to a team of designers. The result is simple fuctional clothing with a modern influence.

Yohji - hate is a very strong word but allow me to vent - I HATE HIM!
His ego is - omg - I can't even tell you... everything he touches apparently turns to gold. Right, the crap he sells for the price of a used car is just disgusting and outrageously overrated (not that all designers dont retail in that price range but YOHJI is a big no no!)

He speaks his mind. Laced with ego. I guess there's some self-restraint.

I don't like his clothes either. I saw one of his collections and it was so dark and apocalyptic. Bleugh.
