All About Yohji Yamamoto


Yohji Yamamoto: a designer who upended the tradition and aesthetics of the Paris fashion scene in the early 1980s, and who has continued to exert an unrelenting influence on fashion ever since. I began reporting on Yamamoto's career in the late 1960s (when he was still a student at Bunka Fashion College) for magazines such as High Fashion, Mr. High Fashion, and Sōen. This book is a compilation of articles about Yamamoto that appeared previously in these three magazines. With a focus on exclusive articles and previously unseen images, this book also covers a 30-year archive of menswear and womenswear collections, including pivotal collections such as the debut show in Paris in 1981, and "6.1 THE MEN," co-hosted with Comme des Garçons in 1991. Also included are works from Yamamoto's days as a student, and interviews from the first year of his career after graduating. This book also includes a new extended interview in which he expresses his unfiltered thoughts about creation and society in the modern era. ABOUT YOHJI YAMAMOTO: Born in Tokyo in 1943. After graduating from Keio University in 1966, he entered Bunka Fashion College. He debuted his womenswear collection at Paris Fashion Week in 1981, and menswear in 1984. In the same year, he founded Yohji Yamamoto Inc. In 1991, he held a joint show with Comme des Garçons titled "6.1 THE MEN." In 1993, he was put in charge of costumes for a production of Wagner's opera, Tristan und Isolde. In 1998, he collaborated with Pina Bausch on the 25 year anniversary of the Wuppertal Dance Company. He has worked on costumes for numerous films directed by the legendary Takeshi Kitano, starting with "Brother" (2000). In 2011, he received the Chevalier/Officier/Commandeur of Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, Medal of Honor with Purple Ribbon, the highest rank of the French Order of Arts and Culture.
