“Films don’t have to be always about drama… This is a story that could be summarized in just a few words. Ozu makes an entire movie out of the most common things of the most common people of the world. Yet, the film conceals so much humanity and profound emotion. He depicts a reality that doesn’t even exist anymore in today’s modern life…”- Yohji YamamotoInvite for Yohji Yamamoto Pour Homme Spring/Summer 2015 via Yohji Yamamoto Official Facebook Page. 
Wish I was there :(.

Oh my god, I hate everything, this fashion writer is citing Memoirs of a Geisha as an actual biography, plumbing it for data on “the economic environment in Japan in the postwar years”.

i honestly cannot name even three fashion writers who have faithfully discussed…

Oh good, it’s not just me? I’ve just started reading this stuff, and I’m, like, smh at all the rando art historians attempting to situate Kawakubo, Yamamoto, et al. in the history of Japanese costume. (Which is maybe a thing you could do? but they’re like, kimonos-samurai-geisha-iki!). And it seriously seems like none of them have ever read a thing in Japanese and maybe just looked at one book apiece by a mid-twentieth century white Japanologist before writing their respective essays?

Maybe I’m unduly privileging/fetishizing Reading Primary Sources in the Original because I come from “classical Sinology” or whatever, but. How is that not irresponsible?

i shouldn’t be talking about this on cough/sleep medication eugh i’ll respond more lucidly after my exam tomorrow but truly, kawakubo + yamamoto + miyake have been subjected to stupid bullshit generalizations just bc they’re asian and design post-war. i have written some about yamamoto trolling us all for the style con……fashion publications and theorists like to be like “ah yes, rei kawakubo the samurai geisha of paris” “ah yes yohji yamamoto the yogi of sexless fashion” “issey miyake is traumatized about war forever” 

i think if u approach them through traditional first-source readings about wabi-sabi you will find more fruitful perspectives but mostly the writing on them all is shit. i have read most of the stuff on kawakubo ever written at this point in english and japanese and translated french it is all mostly just ok. dorinne kondo i don’t remember if she’s written about them but i find her writing on fashion + asian relations in the industry incredibly important. i think she talks about yohji + westernization? it’s been a minute. i find kawakubo and yamamoto very interesting as they occupy an inbetween space in fashion…….they brought black to paris and deconstructionism and the theories behind these things could be linked back to japan if u wanna be about it, but they also have specific “west” and “east” lines to cater to specific demographics. their model castings also, are important to the discussion, and their sizing. they are entirely…..unique. i will chew on it more when im not half drooling srrryy

if u are studying fashion theory and history in parsons and fit as a graduate student  u are obligated to learn french or another language so u can read primary sources if i recall correctly. but i do not know if that learning also involves a critical approach to dismantling western modes of academic production u know? i kinda doubt it
