Yohji Yamamoto Sassy In Paris S/S 2018

SASSY-Definition:  Possessing the attitude of someone endowed with ungodly amount of Cool

The video below is the Yohji Yamamoto men’s 2018 spring/summer runway show in Paris on June 22, 2017.  Once again,  Double Y delivers the goods. Exquisite flow of the tops & bottoms, the appropriate amount of the color black, clothes so comfy looking you may sleep in them,  & loose, flowing draped perfectly silhouettes.

Listed below are the Highlights & Lowlights along with the video of the Runway Show. Enjoy!

Highlights

  • The Duo layer on the bottom of the pants
  • Super comfortable
  • The crisp, clean lines on the straight legged black pants
  • Writing on the right side of the jackets to match the left side of the pants
  • Baggy, cropped, yet nicely tailored and very comfy black bottoms
  • Deconstructed, Reconstructed suit jackets. Some with splotches of paint
  • Silver Zippers, oversized Silver chains, and more sweet silver acruements
  • Fluid, flow, & fun

LowLights

  • The music is a big off. The Clothes really don’t even need music, they are so good,  but they would really sing better with some Loungy-Techno-House.
  • The Blues, the off whites and the reds.

Next post will be the finished product of the Mercer Cred Double Cargo Pocket Pants made by Streetzblog for the Fall 2017 collection. See you on the Streetz!

Nice Pants! Fall 2016

The men’s runway shows are bringing us some pretty dope clothes for Fall 2016. In the previous blog we saw some nice jackets and pants from Dsquared2. Today we find some pretty bangin’ pants from Yohji Yamamoto and Dries Van Noten.

Yohji Yamamoto

Highlights:

  • The color black. There will never be a new black. Maybe slate grey, but nah, black will always rule.
  • Straps:  I used straps on my DIY bomber jacket, Stampd used them in 2015 on their bombers and a pair of trousers. I own a pair of chapters with a couple straps. But this is next level twisting, flipping, turning, cropping, of the black strap. Very nice!
  • Layering black on black always a dope look.
  • Possible skirts for the mainstream? They don’t quite look like a kilt or a skirt with the layering, so maybe this will be the year?
  • And we can see the skinny and super skinny jeans of 2011-2015 finally and definitively moving towards a more bulky, comfortable silhouette. Whew!

Dries Van Noten

Highlights:

  • Sweet Pin Stripes.
  • Crisp, cool, a bit more bulky than before pin striped shorts. A must have for Fall 2016.
  • Once again, The skirt that’s not a Skirt. Layering and changing up the cut could be the breakthrough?
  • The layered look.
  • Comfort is in. From these 2 runway shows we see just a touch of the more bulky baggier look. In some of the other shows for Fall 2016, the pants are even wider than these. Gonna be a great year for men’s clothing especially pants.
