The Victoria and Albert Museum presents a retrospective showcasing over 80 women’s and menswear garments, which are most representative of Yohji Yamamoto’s work.Yamamoto is one of the most influential and visionary fashion designers of the last forty years.His collections are recognised for subverting gender stereotypes and have featured women wearing garments traditionally associated with menswear. Included in the exhibition will be
menswear items from the Autumn/Winter 1998 season which was famously modelled on
women with Vivienne Westwood and Charlotte Rampling as models.
I found very interesting the arrangement of the exhibition designed by Yamamoto’s long-time collaborator, scenographer and lighting designer Masao Nihei.I loved the red tubes on the wall, to show all the videos and Yohji’s work.Giuseppe Alagna on 03.14.11
