Yohji Yamamoto at the V&A

The first UK retrospective of the enigmatic Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto is now on at the V&A in London. It is a chronological journey of his career from the early 80s to today, displaying the most avant-garde and convention-challenging design pieces.

V&A’s Gallery 38 is transformed into a brightly lit industrial space, with a messy wall paintjob, handmade sketches and video projections. It emphasises Yamamoto’s creative genius and his tasteful flirt with the provocative. The pieces defy expectations and surprise, both exciting and satisfying the senses – go and see it before it closes down on the July 10.
