1. Toady I want to share an article that I have read about Yohji Yamamoto, He is a famous
Japanese designer, Some say he is the best anywhere, his fans use his first name (Yamamoto)
when they discuss his clothes.
2. Fashion experts and retailers are often inclined to exaggerate, but Mr. Yamamoto’s influence
is hard to dispute
3. The author wrote about him: When I started designing clothes 12 years ago, I knew there
were two ways,” Mr. Yamamoto, who is 40 years old, said in an interview. ”The first is to work
with formal, classical shapes. The other way is to be very casual. That’s what I decided on, but
I wanted a new kind of casual sportswear that could have the same status as formal clothing.
So I use fabrics that are heavy-duty, like army fabrics, or just look heavy-duty, to give the
kimono shape a new energy.” He spoke in English as he sat in his spare white and black
showroom near the Les Halles district of Paris. The room, cavernous and brightly lighted, was
filled with buyers, trying clothes on from his spring collection.
4. What Mr. Yamamoto and the other Japanese designers have accomplished is a general
loosening of the female silhouette. This they have done with large, loose-fitting garments, such
as jackets with no traditional construction and a minimum of detail or buttons; dresses that
often have a straight, simple shape, and large coats with sweepingly oversized proportions.
5. In general, there is a generosity of proportion and size, often with the kimono(??) as a
starting point of design, and fabrics that range from fresh cottons to robust linens to heavy
wools. All of this came at a time when women’s clothes by most traditional designers were
moving in the opposite direction, toward a snugger fit and formality.
6. For fall, one of Mr. Yamamoto’s most successful coats is made of a pressed wool in mustard
and brown that has the look of great weight but is as light as a raincoat and has no definable
shape, except perhaps a generic coat shape. Worn with simple Western day clothes, a pair of
black trousers, a black shirt and black heels, it is one of the chicquer designs this season.
Moreover, it can be worn during the day or at night.
7. It is also a good example of the flexibility of Mr. Yamamoto’s clothes because it shows that
they work best when they are mixed with Western clothing. When the new clothing from Japan
is worn on the street in exactly the same way it is shown on the runway, the result often becomes
a shapeless heap of fabric. Mr. Yamamoto is aware of that problem.
8. ”I’ve become very nervous myself about the volume of the Japanese clothing and the
kimono shape, so loose and oversized,” he said. ”If you go too far with a kimono, the final
conclusion is just fabric. That is not fashion. The kimono is easy to copy but difficult to make
work. It must be done in a technical way, or it becomes sloppy, too big and too baggy. That is
why my new collection has shapes that are narrower. I wrapped the body very tight.”
9. Mr. Yamamoto also continues to break new ground with his men’s clothes. His men’s spring
collection, for example, has sports jackets, in navy or black, that are loose-fitting, with generous,
rounded shoulders and gored backs. They are made of 90 percent cotton and 10 percent
polyurethane and, as a result, have the stretch of running clothes. There are ankle- length classic
trench coats, in tan or black cottons, with shoulders extended by tailoring, not padding. The
trousers, some with elastic waists, are loose-fitting. And there are black cotton pullover shirts
with zip collars. What strikes one about Mr. Yamamoto’s men’s clothes is that they would work
as well on women.
10. ”I think that my men’s clothes look as good on women as my women’s clothing,” said Mr.
Yamamoto. ”And more and more women are buying my men’s clothes. It’s happening
everywhere, and not just with my clothes. Men’s clothing is more pure in design. It’s more
simple and has no decoration. Women want that. When I started designing, I wanted to make
men’s clothes for women. But there were no buyers for it. Now there are. I always wonder who
decided that there should be a difference in the clothes of men and women. Perhaps men
11. In the United States and Europe, Mr. Yamamoto’s clothing is bought primarily by
professionals, largely because of its cost. A blazer usually sells for around $500. But in Japan
his biggest fans are students.
12. ”I am designing for my generation,” he said, ”but in Japan people are very much seeking
the old way of life again. Sexual differentiation in clothing is more important. My major
customers there are still the university students. My generation isn’t ready for me yet. They
think Yohji is not fashionable enough for them. They will see.”
13. Okay~ This is almost the general, the whole article. The article named Yohji Yamamoto
defines his fashion philosophy by John Duka.
14. As I know, he was born in 1943, Japanese fashion designer active in Tokyo and Paris. He
was rated as a master tailor comparable to Madeleine Viognier and known for his avant-garde
tailoring of Japanese design aesthetics.
15. And~, He founded a brand called Y-3. Of course the parent company is Adidas.
16. Personally, Im pretty interested in his experienced, thought, and speech. As one of
the most fashion leader in present, he did retail very creative, and he very good at to use
the visual elements of collision. No matter the choice of materials, the clever splicing, it
usually makes me feel wow it is clean and not tedious.
Thats the whole stuff that I have prepared for sharing.
Thank you for listening.
