Yohji Yamamoto - Discord

This new luxury accessory brand ‘Discord’ by Yohji Yamamoto went on presale earlier this week in Tokyo. The brand itself was launched as a collaboration with Isetan Mitsukoshi but has evolved to be much more. The logo is composed of a series of imperfect lines or scratches which echoes the wabi-sabi of the items themselves. 

This is Yohji’s first attempt at making bags in the 40 years he’s been a designer. He assembled a team of female designers to help him determine the right texture for the leather as well as the length of the handles and other minute details. 

Yohji does an excellent job of explaining the collection though…
“There are so many cool things in Japan. Wabi-sabi (austere refinement and quiet simplicity), ma (intervals), the aesthetic of subtraction and beauty derived from disintegration and distortion are unique to Japan. We have artisans with top-level traditional skills who work for small businesses. If we create opportunities to introduce items created with such spirits to the market, young people might become interested in the creative process and follow the predecessors’ steps. It’s important for people like me, who have been involved in fashion for a long time, to encourage young talent and pass on traditions and skills. To achieve this, I want to emphasize Japanese beauty in my designs. For this, I require your support!”

Rei continues the Japanese domination of FW 14 

This feels like an 80s resurgence! 

 Themed MONSTER, Kawakubo described her vision as ‘not the typical Monster you find in sci-fi and video games [but] the craziness of humanity, the fear we all have, the feeling of going beyond common sense, the absence of ordinariness, expressed by something extremely big, by something that could be ugly or beautiful.’ ”
