Designer — Yohji Yamamoto is the “ultimate fashion rebel”, unashamedly anti-fashion, he’s been doing his own thing since the late 1970’s. Showing side by side with Rei Kawakubo in Paris, 1981, the all black shows shook the very foundations of the fashion world. For Yohji the starting point is with the fabric, hand made in Kyoto, with inspirations coming from military and pauper clothing. Yohji sees perfection as an intolerable ugliness representative of structure and order and with that an unwillingness to be free. He feels most comfortable when he can see scars, failure and distortion, for him these are the clothes of freedom.
