The art of anti-fashion
Yohji Yamamoto: The fashion designer who redesigned fashion
As one of the most mentally rigorous designers working in fashion, Yohji Yamamoto creates garments that can be intellectual—sometimes even difficult—yet always beautiful. Yohji’s free-spirited world is explored here via i-D magazine’s archives starting back in the 1980s, including his adoration for women and the female form, the painful process of creating anti-fashion through fashion and how his timeless utilitarian designs can be both avant-garde and classic at once.
Packed into 120 pages is biographical and personal information as well as imagery from over 30 years of i-D’s history with images from photographers including Paolo Roversi, Max Vadukul, and Nick Knight, plus interviews with Jamie Huckbody, Holly Shackleton, and Terry Jones.
