Yohji Yamamoto is one of fashion's continual innovators and this stunning book is a fascinating insight into his working approach and relationships with other creative practitioners. This comprehensive and groundbreaking volume includes an insightful interview with Yamamoto, as well as a roundtable discussion with some of his key collaborators, among them Nick Knight, Peter Saville, and Marc Ascoli. Photographer Max Vadukal, who has been working with Yamamoto for more than 25 years, is interviewed by Terry Jones, and long-time collaborator Masao Nihei contributes an essay on some of the wider influences on Yamamoto's designs and how they are presented.

Beautifully illustrated using amazing photographs from the likes of Nick Knight and Paolo Roversi, selected from the Yohji Yamamoto archive, this will be an invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in fashion and design.

Praise for Yohji Yamamoto:

"The deluxe tome, which features images from runway shows, advertisements and editorial photo shoots over the years, paints a compelling portrait of the reclusive designer, whose work is defined by his fascination with textiles."
-LATimes.com, All the Rage blog

"[Yohji Yamamoto] reflects not just the heart-stopping beauty of the clothes, as photographed by Yamomoto's longtime collaborators Nick Knight, Max Vadukul and Paolo Roversi, but also, in his own words, the designer's enigmatic stance. So we learn, almost poignantly, that from the beginning: 'I wanted to protect the clothing itself from fashion, and at the same time the woman's body from something, maybe from men's eyes or a cold wind.'"
