I fell in love with Yohji Yamamoto; with his poetic designs, philosophy, his attitude towards fast fashion industry (or in general. He basically told them to go fuck themselves). He claimed that he's not a fashion designer but a simple dressmaker. He has a meticulous attention for the cut of his garments and the textiles. In this line of work, he's one of the people whom I admire and respect the most.
This visionary documentary it's not only still relevant nowadays, but necessary to claim the poetic souls behind crafts and industries. A true display of sensibility and a warning on consumption and new technologies.
Yohji è stato sempre una fonte d'ispirazione per me. Poter ammirare e toccare le sue creazioni mi ha fatto capire qual'era il corso della mia vita.
Poi, in questo caso...in collaborazione con Wenders...
i was amused after watching it. quoting.
it was almost year ago, but the whole idea and technique of using digital and analog cameras at the same time made my impression. i never was into fashion, but the phylosophy of Yohji Yamamoto is something.
The only fashion documentary with no last-minute runway stress forced as a plotline. More should learn how to just chill like Yohji and reflect the language of film back onto the viewer like Wim. Quietly stunning.
