There are many conversations betwen art historians and theorists: is fashion some kind of art or it’s just an assortment of trivial household items. The answer from Yohji Yamamoto’s last collection is obvious:
My favorite quotes from Yohji Yamamoto:
When everyone says that something is beautiful, I don’t like it.
A beautiful flower does not exist. There’s only a moment when a flower looks beautiful.
If fashion was art, it would not be in fashion.
Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious.
My clothing protects you from unwelcome eyes.
Fashion cannot make you sexy. Experience makes you sexy. Imagination makes people sexy.
Clothing doesn’t lie, it shows everything.
