Book: Yamamoto Yohji «Yamamoto&Yohji»

Yamamoto&Yohji

Серия: "-"

The definitive monograph on the complete work of Yohji Yamamoto - one of fashion's most transformative designers working today and widely acknowledged as a master of postwar fashion design. Since the early'80s, Yohji Yamamoto's groundbreaking silhouettes and innovative design aesthetic have propelled him to the highest rank of the international avant-garde. Distinguished by his antifashion approach, Yamamoto changed the face of contemporary fashion, radically transforming it with asymmetrical and highly conceptual designs partly inspired by the techniques of traditional Japanese kimonos. His vision came as a refreshing contrast to the power suits and brightly clad fashions of the time, forcing a reconsideration of the future direction of fashion. Yamamoto launched his first collection in 1977 in Tokyo and followed this success with the debut of his experimental and critically celebrated Yohji Yamamoto label in Paris in 1981. This luxuriously bound book explores all the major themes in his thirty years of counter-fashion design. Illustrated with photographs by Craig McDean, Inez&Vinoodh, Max Vadukul and Nick Knight, each chapter elaborates on a particular theme - his sartorial philosophy, influential extensions into scenography, runway shows, monographic exhibitions, and costume design - and is anchored by an essay or interview that lends crucial insight to the story of Yohji Yamamoto, one of the most enigmatic and iconoclastic fashion designers of our time.

Yamamoto, Yohji

(1943- )
   Born in Tokyo, Yamamoto's father died during World War II. As a result, he was primarily raised by his dressmaker mother. Although he graduated with a law degree from Keio University in 1966, he pursued a career in fashion and studied at the prestigious Bunka-fukuso Gakuin fashion school in Tokyo. After designing anonymously for several years, Yamamoto launched his own collection, called Y, in 1972. In 1981, he created fashion history when he showed his collection of Japanese-inspired worker uniforms on models with bald heads and white face paint in Paris. He chose mostly black, distressed fabrics covered in holes for the collection, which were shown on beautiful models wearing flat shoes. Yamamoto's anti-fashion statement marked a new era in the fashion world, known as shabby chic. Throughout his career, Yama-moto worked with longtime collaborator Madame Shimosaka and experimented with ancient Japanese traditions such as shibori (a tie-dye technique) and wabi-sabi (the beauty aesthetic of imperfection). He and compatriot Rei Kawakubo were known for their deconstruc-tivist philosophy and for pioneering the cross-gender movement; hallmarks of their individual style.
   In 1984, Yamamoto introduced a men's line that built on this philosophy and, in 1996, he marketed an eponymous fragrance. In partnership with Adidas in 2001, he launched a line of athletic shoes and, in 2003, a less expensive men's and women's line of clothing under the Y-3 label. Convinced that his clothes were more couture than ready-to-wear, Yamamoto shocked the industry by showing his 2002 ready-to-wear collection during couture week in Paris. Yamamoto has published two books, Talking to Myself (2002) and A Magazine 2 (2005). In 2005, he was honored with a retrospective at Paris's Musée de la Mode et du Textile in a show entitled Juste des Vêtements (just clothes). Yamamoto operates 160 stores in Japan and 6 stores outside of Japan and sells to 200 stores worldwide.
