YOHJI YAMAMOTO, THE BOOK
The definitive retrospective of the master’s work has been thoughtfully edited by V&A museum curator, Ligaya Salazar. Featuring a lengthy interview with Yohji as well as roundtable discussions with his frequent collaborators like Nick Knight, Peter Saville and Marc Ascoli, the book aims to encapsulate the lasting influence and innovative spirit of one of the industry’s true legends. The in-depth tome also features an essay written by his long time collaborator, Masao Nihei, on “some of the wider influences on Yohji Yamamoto’s designs and their presentation.” For any aspiring designers or fans of avant-garde fashion in general, this book is a must.
