it looks really great...

it is such a relief to me that we have these new collections that we can add to what has historically been a very small group of designers catering to this market...

it gives me such hope for the future..
as i have begun to realize that the 'masters' and originators of this aesthetic...
yohji, rei and issey...are reaching retirement age...
i am so thankful that the legacy will be carried on and that they have each taken steps to insure this...

it cannot be a coincidence that all three are supporting and promoting designers from within their companies....
rather than sucking them dry and taking credit for their work....

**this goes far beyond selling clothes...
this is all so revolutionary in many ways...
and pure genius...
it would seem so obvious that nurturing talent is a good thing for everyone involved...
and yet so few companies think about the long-term , big picture...
probably because they are run by business-minded people rather than artistically-minded ones...(such a crying shame!)

just think about the loyalty it breeds!...
*til death do us part!*

on the other hand, it seems as if red label/Michiko was somewhat allowed to express herself beyond that conventional manner.
as if she was allowed to express the strength more straightly, or in a more vivid way.
as if he entrusted what he cannot do to her.

the key word of red label A/W 06 was "spicy" while the one of black label was "protest".
we know "protest" has been one of yohji's underlying factors/requirements.
therefore there should be "protest" about red label as well since red label is still Y's.
"protest" is just the major premise.
so I think red label had something extra of "spicy", along with "protest".
in which sense red label could be more strongly seasoned.

btw red label is also supposed to be "punkish" in comparison with black label.




she is the younger generation than Limi, Tao, Makiko (behind matohu), etc.
it's obvious that yohji wants her to acquire as much experience as possible.
this S/S 08 is her/Red Label's fourth collection and also the first runway show.
these threads below include her previous collections if you are interested.

i just have to say that i agree with this...
this jumper that i have is definitely more strongly seasoned that typical yohji style...
and also more punk, in a way...
it's "louder"...

even louder than Limi...
but also, more refined, somehow...
the pattern is quite complex and there is a lot of volume, especially in the back...
it's a bold statement...
and it's very youthful...

yohji's own style is definitely more subtle...and fluid...
and limi is more playful, imo...
at least from my experience wearing them all...
:p
