Yohji’s Woes, Fashion’s Future, And More…

-------

After showing a collection seemingly geared to keep retailers happy, Yohji Yamamoto filed for bankruptcy today, which would explain this season’s (relative) lack of risk-taking. Let’s hope for something a bit more raw and deconstructed next season then, when we’re all rich again. [WWD]

The live-streaming runway trend took off this season, and you can bet your kitten heels we’ll be seeing many more online spectacles in seasons to come. If, like us, all this fashion immediacy makes you want those clothes Right Now, our Shop the Looks feature may help satisfy your buying desire. [NYT]

He’s so good at wearing them…why not make them? David Beckham is the latest celebrity to possibly join the designer ranks (his wife beat him to it) with a line of Beckham-branded underwear. He may not be “designing” them, per se, but we’re sure he’ll be doing lots of walking around in them, shirtless. [WWD]

Mentioning unmentionables, all the underwear on the runway begs the question: Does wearing lingerie make you look desperate? Only if you’re “professional or mature” and would perhaps be embarrassed “to wear such things.” So…no? [WSJ]

    I told already months ago that there will be some designers which will go broke, or have a bankruptcy. It’s only a shame that Mr. Yamamoto is also one of them. The designers who work for holdings/companies like PPR or LVMH are more sure of their job and future then the more independent designers. What’s worrying me the most is that new or upcoming designers don’t even get a chance to show their collections. They can design but the lack of money is an great issue and the main reason why they can’t show their collections. Alison, people who have money have maybe these days a little less money but people who have nothing and have to go to work everyday for 2 or 3 jobs to make a living can only dream about what we are talking about here on the Blog. They are the customers of C&A, H&M, Zara and the Gap etc. We are actually privileged people, okay day and night busy with fashion but it’s also very relaxing to see a great show again of Mr. Lagerfeld or Galliano. For now have a nice weekend.
