i really feel like some of these designers are channelling the ghost of carolyn kennedy. i like how forcefully yohji mixed his trademark volume with an almost couture sophistication. if i had to predict a trend based on this collection, i would say that minimalism is sneaking its way back onto the radar. but instead of that sharp, uniform of the nineties, we have this modern, luxurious, almost decadadent overabundance of fabric and detail.

you do realize of course that she wore a HUGE ammount of yohji...so if this looks like her...that would be why...

no offence to Yojhi fans but i find this kind of fashion a bit odd and almost pretentious. i cant make any sence out of it or why anyone would find it appealing

Yep, she was a regular at the NYC Yamamoto boutique.

i find it sort of elitist in a way, in the same respect that some abstract artwork can be. its another perfect case of something people will pretend to like beause somebody else says they do even though they actually find it bizarre

That's one way of looking at it. Another way of looking at it would be that these designs are avant-garde (at the forefront), pushing the stale boundaries of fashion. Think about it, if we didn't have the likes of Rei and Yohji who revolutionized the human form, and later the belgians who brought the social reflection and romantic sensibility to fashion - it'd be the same stale prim-and-prpoer sh*t from Paris and tacky and vulgurly sexy garbage from Milan - the same way if it wasn't for the likes of Van Gogh (and even Malevich with his simple Black Square) - we'd still be looking at the inane (albeit skillful) portraits of the Popes, the Generals and Jesus Christ in arts .

im not accusing you or anyone here of being that way, im just saying generally that there are a lot of people this way, i know for a fact

some people would find a paper bag fabulous if it was done by the right name.

remember, it's those pretenders dollars that are keeping many of these brands alive (that and fragrance sales)

oh, well, yea, that goes without saying. however, i would imagine many more of these to be the clients of the likes of Marc Jacobs...
