Yohji Yamamoto Book Review

It’s a rare treat for the general public to be able to get a sneak peak into the world of a design genius, but that opportunity arises with the new Yohji Yamamoto book, published by the V&A. Yamamoto is one of the most innovate designers of our time who has produced several visually breathtaking collections over the years. The book gives readers a great insight­ ­into the goings on of Yamamoto’s world. His story is brought to life with some striking photos taken by none other than Nick Knight and Paolo Roversi no less.

The book has some great interviews, not only from Yamamoto himself, but also from some of his close colleagues and friends, including Max Vadukul who has worked with Yamamoto for a quarter of a century, so you can be sure to find out some un known stories of his past and present and start to get to know the persona behind the brand that has become of Yamamoto.

This is more than a book about Yamamoto, it is a great source of inspiration and knowledge and not just for designers or those interested in fashion.
