Her Reputation Precedes Her

Freja opened the Y-3 show last night and her "performance" is causing quite a stir. The show was a fun, laser light spectacle with fun being the operative word.
"I've done this job for 28 years and sometimes I feel like I've done everything," explained Mr. Yamamoto backstage. "This time I said to myself, Yohji, you must have fun!"
The show, which was an ode to masked heroes like Zorro, ended with Yohji fighting and beating a male model, only to be knocked down to the floor by Freja. I guess knightess in shining armor is something we should now add to her resume. :)



Anyway, check out what some press are saying about it:

fibre2fashion: The show closed with a bang and the superhero theme came full circle as Mr. Yamamoto and a masked male model duked it out in front of the audience. Yamamoto emerged as the winner after the hardcore scuffle. That is, until tough-as-nails supermodel Freja Beha knocked the designer back down to the ground.

Racked: Finale! Yohji Yamamoto just practiced self defense in a laser circle, taking down a male model but beat by Freja Beha Erichsen. Of course.

Telegraph: And he even staged a mock “fight” where he felled a male model with a katate (sic) kick, but was then knocked down by a feisty supermodel, Freja Beha.

I guess her tough, androgynous reputation is well known, but in this instance I don't mind. So surprise number 1 of fashion week has already happened with this comical spectacle. I wonder what other surprises are in store for us? You know Freja always has a few up her sleeve every fahsion week. Whether they're good (like this one) or bad (like missing Paris fashion week) they definitely keep us all interested.

I'm at the Carolina herrera show and freja is number 32 on the model list. How exiting can't wait to finally see her in person even if it's from a few rows away.

Hi. I'm watching the show live right now and she was in fact there. She wore a stunning pale blue/silver-ish gown. Really pretty :)

Rrose Sélavy said...

Thank you so much for sharing too! Sounds very lovely. Glad you got to see her live. :)

Oh no, there's this website that was doing the live showstream of the show, so I got to see it there.

Yea it was awesome to see her in all her freja glory surpisingly the first thing I did when I saw her was to spot all of her tattoos as if I was making sure it was really her. She's beautiful I got to take a picture with Karlie after the show, and I asked her if she saw freja n she told me she had left already. Never the less it was bliss seeing freja's name on the list and actually getting to see her walk shortly there after. :)

It seems that Freisel isn't short lived! Freja has a new studio editorial in US Vogue with Meisel and a whole crop of girls.

Did you ever think you would be reading that sentence!?
