A Whisper


My favourite look









Spring/Summer 2011

The collection as a whole was certainly not Yohji at his best, it was a touch too busy in places, lacking that certain sense of restrained elegance, or playful demureness, that for me makes his work so magical.  The collection was the product of a company at one of its most turbulent times, but even so, there was for me immense beauty to be found.  I far preferred the quieter looks - my favourite look was actually the second one I have posted, a simple black dress.  Make it simple, make it subtle, make it intimate, make it natural.  I don't like things that are too loud, there is already far too much noise in the world, I want something that whispers its beauty in my ear.

  4. The fashion seasons are so ridiculous I feel like I saw this ages ago, when it is in fact for this upcoming season. I just can't get into yohji clothes, but I remember liking this one. I like the 1st look especially--I like a shirt dress.

  5. Minimalism is beautiful, but something that is plain black or white needs to be impeccably cut and constructed. As a student, I have problems with finding perfect pieces that fit well but also fit my limited budget. I would rather have a limited but well curated wardrobe than a mountain of half-loved things, but I might need to mature more before I can be that person.

  10. i'm not up on these things but i do like what i see. i think the fits work really well with the model choices. unsure how it would look on the pearshaped.

    glad we share the same taste (or maybe not the actual taste) in toothpaste.
