Men at Yohji's

Yohji Yamamoto's Spring 2012 Groove!

When it comes to Japanese designers Yohji Yamaoto, Kenzo and Rei Kawakubo (comme des Garcons) are my biggest inspiration.
I like the fact that most of their designs have a sense of fun and a 'so what' kind of feeling!

I could just imagine them enjoying around creating amazing master pieces.  In my experience in designing, I do not take things serious and just enjoy creating and learning through my mistakes.  In designing depending on a situation mistakes can be a whole new venue to look into.

These designer are known for their avant-garde designs.  Their draping in varying textures and use of prints and techniques, and the way they incorporate their traditional wear into the now and beyond, is truly amazing.  This is what sets them apart and they do not bother with trends.  I love that! 

Yohji had his exquisite exhibition at the V&A this year, which I found myself visiting this exhibition twice.  A thing that I had never done before.  I was totally blown away not only by the luxuriousness in the fabrics and colours that he used for his collections, but with the cuts and techniques that he applied on his designs, a true genius!

The man himself.  Described as a man of very few words!

I was mostly intrigued by his new men's collection.  I denote a touch of Japanese tradition is the trade mark, yet stylish, unique, masculine ...... I perceive it to be simply cool.
Here are few of my favourites that I have chosen to share with you..... Enjoy!

So cool!!!

Cruising in style vs Bling!

Vintage skirt at the V&A museum. Love the print.
There is so much design inspirations in everything around you. I linked this print with this vintage car design below.

Classic Cars

While others were busy taking photos of the bride, I was admiring this classic babe!

Wouldn't mind having this by my driveway. It is just super cool, love it so much.

Myself (center) with big sis and brother, ready for cruising in our Peugeot 304 estate.

Ideal, just fabulous

Don't you just love them!

Bling Talk!

At the exhibition wearing swarovski earrings. These were my birthday present by the way, sorry you can not see them properly here.

A studded Mercedes Benz SL600 by swarovski crystals.
Personally, I though this was crazy, until I heard about Kanye West removing his bottom row of teeth, and replaced them with gold and diamonds. "Gross".
