Notebook on Cities and Clothes: Yohji Yamamoto, Wim Wenders


[ED: New small post up for SHOWstudio on Yohji Yamamoto's Y's boutique in Tokyo, circa 1981. In tandem, the following images are taken from Wim Wenders 1989 documentary on Yamamoto, "Notebook on Cities and Clothes." The audio is taken from Michael Nyman's 1993 work for Yohji Yamamoto, "The Show Vol. 2"]

I exist here, now. I’m not much interested in the future. Or, more precisely put, I do not believe in the future. To exaggerate a little, I have no faith that I will still exist tomorrow or the day after. What is more, I absolutely detest retrospection. That dislike is balanced only by my desire to make my way back home as quickly as possible.
