Yamamoto made his debut on the high-fashion runways in Paris in 1981 and immediately became a trendsetter and an icon of style.
Critics at the time defined his fashion “post-atomic”. In fact, the designer loves to play with non-conventional forms and innovative silhouettes.
His principal clothing lines are shown in Tokyo, Paris, New York and Antwerp. To celebrate their importance, the director Wim Wenders made a documentary about Yamamoto’s life entitled Notes on Cities and Clothes.
Rizzoli NY’s captivating book explores the master’s primary themes, taking a close look at a many-faceted personality who knew how to make his mark on the international fashion world.
