Sport and elegance? The answer is given by shaking up the basics: coded graphic stripes, drawstring waists, brought together with asymmetry, over-sizing, wrappings. On the feet: Adidas for Yohji Yamamoto – deviants refined with silk and floral prints.

The bag — a nomadic object containing life’s necessities, an object subject to introspection — lends itself to a variety of transformations to become fun and elegant clothing with clever cuts and plays on zips.

For some reason, I am moved by the female form, as seen from the side, or diagonally from behind. Like a feeling of waiting to chase after and restrain something that passes by, or passes through. You could call it a feeling of “missing” something. A lingering scent is the same. A kind of feeling of longing for something. There is always an adoration for women in me which resembles the temptation I have for things that have passed me by. And so I can only see a woman as someone who passes by, a person who disappears. Therefore the “Back” is important to me. I think clothes should be made from the back, and not the front. The back supports the clothes, and so if it is not properly made, the front cannot exist. – Yohji Yamamoto
