Y's Yohji Yamamoto Red Label S/S 08 Tokyo
I put Yohji Yamamoto in the title because you'd never hit the threads on Y's by just Y's when searching.
but this Red Label is a line, which is supposed to be stronger than Y's Black Label by Yohji, designed by Michiko Suzuki.
she is younger than Limi, Tao, etc. she used to be a patternmaker at YY inc. before this.
this collection consists of the four colors, black, white, blue, and red.
"just married" as its theme

Interesting to hear about another YY protege!
I'd love to hear what you mean by 'stronger' than Y's black label, runner? Perhaps more bold, striking, colourful?

i def don't think it means more colourful...

it usually means a bolder, more avant garde design...
stronger shapes and silhouettes...

but i will let runner speak for himself...
...

:p

you're all welcome




Avantster, Y's black label can be strong in some ways of course.
but it's so in the regular manner of Y's.
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.

You explained that so beautifully runner, thank you. I definitely see the difference that you are talking about....that must be why I love Red Label so much! :p

I am so happy to know that Yohji has such wonderful people working for him, who will be able to continue his work and legacy.
