you are welcome softgrey
you mean, while he sometimes does usen wings on fabrics, the wings on leather can be a cliche ?
hmm maybe
what I assume is wings, as something to paint, are just appropriate from a practical view point.
if they had painted some more complicated design like a mermaid, using various colors, as they did before, the vest would have been far more expensive than the yohji-painted special shirt. which is basically no good, balance-wise.
or there the wings might ironically reveal his desire to close the wings, free from "the storm of progress".

yes-
i definitely think that the wings work in that context and add to the presentation...

i guess what i was wondering is if the wing motif is overused at this point...
or if it is a timeless symbol that never grows old...

or maybe it's just a bit too literal to be cool...
if you know what i mean...
i wasn't so sure about it...


the thing is- i actually like the way it is painted...
so that seems to override everything else...
in my eyes, anyway...
i like it...
i wasn't sure at first...
but now i'm sure...
it's very elegant...

:p

btw, "a beauty looking back" - mikaeri bijin - is a traditional subject.
