YOHJ (jun viv): S/S 15

And now for something completely different. Though late, this post is the first of the bi-annual YOHJ JUN VIV posts, in which I cover the trifecta that is the successive PFW shows of Yohji Yamamoto, Junya Watanbe, and Vivienne Westwood. However, in this YOHJ post, I focus not on the inspiration or materials or palette or overall look of the collection. Rather, I focus on this spiffy audience member.

Seriously, this guy is the most stylish older man I have seen since Gary Fisher, and he is rightly in nearly all of the 51 photos available on Style.com (some of which I’ve included at the bottom of the post, picked not for the pieces but rather clear shots of The Man in the White Suit, with the exception of the cover image – I like that one), catching ones attention from the very first photo. Not only does this guy have his colour coding/blocking down pat, but his eyes say it all: the backs of the pieces must’ve been great (or at least interesting), there was some annoying person in the audience (i.e. the intense sideways glance above, and in other photos), really only one piece was worthy of taking a picture for future and repeated reference, and the star of the show was Mr. Yamamoto himself (really, The Man in the White Suit’s eye looks so happy). He also looks like a longshanks version of the kind gentleman that sells me perogies at the farmers’ market.

Also, what on earth was the unseen audience member doing? They even made The Man in the White Suit take his glasses off. Come on.
