another obsession.

sorry for not posting in a month and randomly disappearing off the blog world, i tend to do that sometimes. i've just been devoting a lot of my time to preparing for an a.p exam- u.s. history. it's a drag.
my latest designer obsession. a lot of the times i find his designs to be mystic, sexy and 'quiet', whatever that may mean. people have refered to him as just more than a fashion designer, he is a poet who brings his work of art onto the runway. his designs are not exactly the glamourous type, rarely seen on the red carpet or any other social event, you may even say that his work represents the exact opposite. one thing i love the most about him is his uniqueness that sets him so far apart from the others. i read an interview of him in visionaries and i was immediately intrigued. 'like a pendulum, real clothes and costume, yesterday and today. With my two hands, I have mixed the ridiculousness and absurdity of costume and the boringness of real clothes, like creating the salad dressing for nouvelle cuisune.' i'm not quite sure what he even means by that, but here's a segment of the interview that may be more understanding, 'where i was born,' yamamoto once told me, speaking so quietly that i had to strain to hear him, 'there were very many prostitutes. And they were wearing high heels and strong lipstick. And really, I was afraid. I was scared. Because they looked very, very wild. Very, very wild and scary. Not natural. And after I became a designer, i still have the same reaction to high heels and strong lipstick. I get very scared.' i guess that's one of the reasons why he tends to use flats and very mute makeup on the runways. enjoy the amazing photos.
by the way, this is my 100th post! thanks to all who visit and you're comments and responses mean alot to me- hope to do another 100!

His design is totally different with western designer I think. The design is more to low-profile cos it doesn't show up "flesh" as much as the western designer brands. But it's fulled with details. LOVE those black dresses!

yayy Happy 100th!

Never heard of this designer before. The hair in the collection with the bright orange dress reminds me of the Alexander McQueen hair from spring.

Glad to have you back!

Besides his designs: look at that face. I mean. How sweet and peaceful and wise looks the man. Or is it men. Hell forgive me, I'm Miss. English as a Second language. Hahhaha.

I find him very interesting. I am reading a costume history book and he is there! He went down in history, his clothes were a revolution during the late 80's and 90's.

Woohoo! Happy 100th post, lovely! I love the heaviness of each outfit and how they flow. I've never been a big fan of his, though.

Suddenly I'm struck with the image of Yamamoto cowering in the corner of a brothel full of prostitutes in high heels and "strong" lipstick. Poor guy! And I love the salad dressing reference. Weird.
Congrats on 100 posts. Damn, that's a lot. I gotta step up!
