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,

Yohji Yamamoto : designer monographs by Yohji Yamamoto( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and Multiple languages and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries 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
Visionaire( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Issue 46 wasn't the first Visionaire guest-edited by Mario Testino, but it was the first in which, rather than sharing glam snaps of models and celebrities, the photographer revealed a keen sense of contemporary art, curating a selection of scintillating artworks themed around desire and sex. "Mario has an incredible eye for art," says Visionaire founder Cecilia Dean. "But it's an aspect of his personality that, until then, hadn't been expressed in a publication." In UNCENSORED, Testino selected sexually provocative works by artists like Marlene Dumas, Thomas Ruff, Ghada Amer, and Tracey Emin, many of which were rendered on customized tactile inserts like latex. "Sex is so integral to life," Testino says. "If it wasn't for sex, life would not exist. From that, one can derive so much inspiration." And that he did. The issue also contained a special portfolio of the photographer's unpublished work, including five original prints of couples in their most intimate moments. And because it wouldn't be an issue about sex without someone or something Brazilian, a tiny swatch of supermodel Gisele Bündchen's bedsheets was included in each copy. All of which earned the issue an EXPLICIT CONTENT label—completely deservedly"--Publisher's 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"--
