"Dolls" regroupe trois histoires d'amour inspirées d'un spectacle de poupées du théâtre Bunraku. Dans la première, Matsumoto et Sawako forment un couple heureux, mais les pressions exercées par leurs deux familles vont les forcer à faire un choix tragique. -- Dans la deuxième, Hiro, un chef yakuza, retourne dans un parc où il avait l'habitude de voir sa petite amie, et se souvient... Trente ans plus tôt, il était un pauvre ouvrier et s'est retrouvé forcé de se séparer de la jeune fille pour intégrer le milieu du crime. -- Dans la troisième, Haruna, dont le visage est recouvert de bandages, passe le plus clair de son temps à regarder la mer. Peu de temps auparavant, elle était une grande star de la musique, habituée à signer des autographes et à se montrer à la télévision. Nukui est sans aucun doute son plus grand fan et aujourd'hui, il compte bien le lui prouver

Yamamoto & Yohji by Yohji Yamamoto( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the early '80s, Yohji Yamamoto's groundbreaking silhouettes and innovative design aesthetic have propelled him to the highest rank of the international avant-garde. Distinguished by his anti-fashion approach, Yamamoto changed the face of contemporary fashion, radically transforming it with asymmetrical and highly conceptual designs partly inspired by the techniques of traditional Japanese kimonos. His vision came as a refreshing contrast to the power suits and brightly clad fashions of the time, forcing a reconsideration of the future direction of fashion. In Yamamoto & Yohji, this luxuriously bound book explores all the major themes in his forty years of counter-fashion design showing for the very first time his work not only on the Yamamoto brands but as well on his brand Y's and these various collaborations in architecture, movies, plays, literature. Illustrated with photographs by Craig McDean, Inez & Vinoodh, Max Vadukul and Nick Knight, each chapter elaborates on a particular theme - his sartorial philosophy, influential extensions into scenography, runway shows, monographic exhibitions, and costume design - and is anchored by an essay or interview that lends crucial insight to the story of Yohji Yamamoto, one of the most enigmatic and iconoclastic fashion designers of our time." --from book description,

Japanese fashion designers : the work and influence of Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto and Rei Kawakubo by Bonnie English( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past 40 years Japanese designers have led the way in aligning fashion with art, ideology and integrity, as well as addressing identity and social politics through dress. They have demonstrated that both creative and commercial enterprise is possible in today's international fashion industry, and have refused to compromise their ideals, remaining autonomous and independent in their design, business affairs and distribution methods. The inspirational Miyake, Yamamoto and Kawakubo have gained worldwide respect and admiration and have influenced a generation of designers and artists alike. Based on twelve years of research, this book provides a richly detailed and uniquely comprehensive view of the work of these three key designers. It outlines their major contributions and the subsequent impact that their work has had upon the next generation of Japanese designers including Watanabe, Takizawa and Takahashi (Undercover), leading Japanese textile designers, and European fashion designers including Margiela and the Belgians, Viktor & Rolf and Chalayan"-

Yohji Yamamoto : designer monographs by Yohji Yamamoto( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

As one of the most mentally rigorous designers working in fashion, Yohji Yamamoto creates garments that can be intellectual - sometimes even difficult - yet always beautiful. Yohji's free-spirited world is explored here via "i-D" magazine's archives starting back in the 1980s, including his adoration for women and the female form, the painful process of creating anti-fashion through fashion and how his timeless utilitarian designs can be both avant-garde and classic at once. Packed into 120 pages is biographical and personal information as well as imagery from over 30 years of i-D's history with images from photographers including Paolo Roversi, Max Vadukal, and Nick Knight, plus interviews with Jamie Huckbody, Holly Shackleton, and Terry Jones
