in the world right now, fashion is shit

yohji yamamoto
spring/summer 2013

women's wear daily asked yohji to explain his recent comment "fashion is like shit"....

"let me talk like an old man. young people, be careful. beautiful things are disappearing every day. be don't need to be [shopping at fast-fashion stores], especially young people. they are beautiful naturally, because they are young. so they should even wear simple jeans and a t-shirt. it's enough. don't be too much fashionable...the brand advertising is making you crazy. you don't need to be too sexy. you are sexy enough."

& that is why i love yohji yamamoto. when i was a kid (well teenager) i had no idea about brands, really. well, maybe calvin klein or jordache jeans but we were not so obsessed with expensive brands. fashion was about creativity - making t-shirts, tie dying, cutting off our own jeans etc. kids today should learn to enjoy the freedom of youth.
