I'm reading this book about Japanese fashion designers and a great part of it was about Yohji Yamamoto. It can't be denied how he, together with Rei Kawakubo and Issey Miyake, totally changed the landscape and history of fashion during the 80's. They were revolutionary and totally so different from Western conventional fashion that it polarized the fashion cognoscenti. Although Japanese designers are still considered avant-garde these days, it's not as shocking as before.
My friend Toxic gave me this Yohji Yamamoto jacket knowing I love his designs so much. I think I can wear Yohji Yamamoto everyday if I can afford it.
