Yohji Yamamoto Chronicle – Yohji Yamamoto POUR HOMME
“Without a mastodon to club, storytelling is the oldest way to snare an audience. The story Yohji Yamamoto told this time around provided a vital focus for his design. It helped him quite literally trim away the superfluous volume that has recently been something of a bête noire, and it added a topical poignancy that made the collection the strongest he has shown in years.
War is an inescapable fact of contemporary life. Yohji chose to address it with a subtle narrative thread that dealt with a soldier’s homecoming, using classic Dylan numbers to soundtrack the journey.”
