Love Yohji

06.06.2011 | Blog , Fashion , Thoughts | BY:

Few fashion designers are as uncompromising as Yohji Yamamoto. Guided by strict aesthetic principles, the Japanese radical has spent 30 years perfecting his dark, androgynous style. As he says in a new 30 minute documentary to be released this autumn,  “I’m not interested in fashion…I’m just interested in how to cut the clothing.”

Staunchly private, for a few short months in 2009, Yamamoto let the cameras observe his Y-3 Spring/Summer 2010 collection taking shape, from initial design through to show styling and PR.  With measured gravitas, Yohji Yamamoto: This is My Dream is a portrait of a grand master, whose musings on fashion, creativity and life have fuelled a global empire. Watch and learn.

Yohji Yamamoto: This is My Dream will be released on DVD in September AW11 and is available from Y-3 stores.
