Love the photos, although it's a bit hard to see the clothes....from what I can tell, looks quite good.

thank you runner, as always!

the men's collection looks really good- the shoes are great as well...


runner- perhaps this is where you may find a vest for fall?...
there are also some really super men's knits in this group...

thanks for posting the images...
the colour pics remind me of paolo roversi...i wonder if he shot them...

you are welcome laika


thanks softgrey
I'll go see what they have there. today is the day all the yohji stores here start the A/W 07.
the color pics for red label were shot by Kisyu Hoi aka hoikisyu.
also this season they collaborated with Genta Kosumi on those colorful clothes of Y's red label.
I think you recognise Genta's work because he is the person who painted the covers of Ego-Wrappin' albums.

it seems that he tried to make clothes picturesque, likening material to canvas
and they tried to make pictures clothes
for more freedom/expansion of both sides' languages.

I'd say hoikisyu and Genta are by no means big-name. but I think YY Inc. needed their power.
both of them are from the Kansai district. mishahoi was talking about the Kansai district in detail in the old Tokyo sale thread if I remember rightly. you'd see what that district is like there. anyway it's different from Tokyo. it still has some kind of strength which Tokyo has lost or lacks. it has something self-assertive and hungry and raw.
it's interesting to see the Kansai blood run in Y's veins in such a big way.
yohji might have a sense of crisis about too quiet people here of today.

I agree, the men look very good, sharp and young (even better than the main line imo)

The YY imaging collab is really a surprise to me, looks disturbingly beautiful.

Thanks runner:-)

very very interesting...
maybe new york is too quiet now as well...

the colours and the movement definitely express some good energy...

it's interesting as well that what strikes me most is the prevalence of red and yellow in both the photographs from the blog and the illustrations...
it's a thread that runs through both...
so it seems like a happy marriage...

:p

*yay ego wrappin'...

some info on the label Y's
Quote:
Y's
In the early 1970's, Yohji Yamamoto created Y's, his first line. The first show ran in Tokyo, 1977. The collection for women reflected typical men's garments, as the clothes were cut in uncluttered shapes with washed fabrics and dark colors. These clothes expressed a functional elegance and sobriety that Yohji Yamamoto would reaffirm a few years later with Y's for men.
Today, Y's and Y's for men have taken their place as practical, day-to-day wear beyond the bounds of fashion and shifting trends.
Quote:
Y's for Men
This line includes Y's for men Shirt and the "Red Label" in refined fabrics which are directly inspired from the wardrobe of Mr. Yamamoto. The latter two lines are only available in Japan.
